A picture paints a thousand words. Well, an animated GIF paints considerably more. So here are some of the best videos from the Ryder Cup at Medinah.
Martin Kaymer celebrates holing the putt that ensured Europe retained the Ryder Cup, on Sunday night. Nerves of steel, pal.
1. If only the rest of Team Europe could match Ian Poulter’s intensity. Here’s Poults’ crazy eyes celebration at the 16th on Saturday at Medinah. Love this guy.
2. This GIF shows what happened after Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley won their foursome on Friday. Bradley’s caddie Steve Hale waves the flagstick like a lunatic in one of the best golf celebrations you’re likely to see. If you’re American. To us, it just looks a bit like a Star Wars lightsabre fail.
3. We like Big Phil. He likes Keegan Bradley. What’s not to like?
4. It looks like Justin Rose is saying: ‘All right, yeah!’ But really it’s the finger-snapping that steals the show here. Lame by football standards, but a good golf celebration.
5. Via the good folk at Balls.ie, here’s that glorious Rory McIlroy shot on the fourth hole on Friday. World No1 McIlroy and Graeme McDowell were on fire.
6. The buddies from Northern Ireland threw in these nice football-style celebrations too.
7. Here’s Rory McIlroy in a fatsuit. It’s Jason Dufner (hell of a player, mind) with the fastest fist-pump in history, on Saturday at Medinah.
