I don’t care if you’re a golf fan or not, the Ryder Cup is one of the most hype sporting events in the world.

The match play format between America and Europe involves so much passion, the only way you can’t get excited is if you don’t have a pulse.

And one of the best parts about the event?

The crowd.

Thousands come to the prestigious tournament in support of their country, and they come foaming at the mouth, ready to see their favorite players ball out on the course.

The best part about the event is that it’s held every other year, so fans are chomping at the bit by the time it comes rolling around.

Perhaps the best part is the atmosphere on the first tee.

Luckily, this year’s Ryder Cup is being played at Whistling Straits in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, so the stands are filled with red white and blue.

Needless to say, this morning’s atmosphere was fuckin’ ROWDY.

If I were a European golfer teeing off today, I would probably mess around and whiff it.
