The Ryder Cup Build Up in Photos - Good Times....

I thought it would be nice to take a breather and have a look at a few of the images from the build up to the Ryder cup, to see how far we've come to get to this point. About an hour or so til it all kicks off in earnest. To use Faldo's words, "Crikey, crumbs, good golly gosh!", it it upon us!


It was written in the stars that these two men, who have been at loggerheads for most of their careers should lock horns once more as captains of the Ryder Cup. Here they are some time ago before the knives really came out in the press. Journalists have bemoaned them as "the worst Ryder Cup Captains in history", secretly loving the fact that they get to put he shoe in Faldo for a good two years.

When Faldo arrived with the Ryder Cup in hand at the airport, he'd had one sherry too many , Azinger the only thing holding him up in this picture...



Faldo was in much less merry mood when the old Sandwichgate scandal hit, here pointing at the guy who took the photo telling him to stay right there...


...Faldo immediately jumped on his trusty golf cart and attempted to mow down the offending photographer down. He hopped over a fence and was away like a rabbit however. Faldo has put a bounty on his head, three mars bars and a kitkat, BOOM, BOOM!


Um, I'm with Justin Leonard here, keep it in the locker room boys, no one wants to see that...
