Behaviour of US fans CRITICISED in early stages of day one at Ryder Cup

In the early stages of the first day of the Ryder Cup, the US fans have received a lot of criticism for their behaviour during the Friday foursomes.

As this is an extremely different Ryder Cup due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there are very few European fans at Whistling Straits, so the home crowd will be at their loudest and rowdiest this week.

However, some golf fans have reported bad behaviour from some of the spectators and expressed strong views against them on social media.

It is said that when Paul Casey hit his tee shot on the par-3 3rd hole, a spectator shouted: "get in the water" at his ball. On the contrary, the Englishman almost made a hole-in-one.

He and his partner Viktor Hovland won the hole to go all square with Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa.

There have also been shouts heard of "get in the bunker". These are the key reasons why some golf fans have been critical of the hostile American fans in Wisconsin so far.

The Ryder Cup is known to be a tribal event and the only event in the sport where you regularly experience cases of hostility and on occasion, a lack of sportsmanship.
