Bad jumpers, dodgy strides
The 1929 US team on the roof of the Savoy in London
Shocking colours, outrageous patterns - Ryder Cup players have run into some unfortunate fashion bunkers down the years.

But it wasn't always that way. Golfers once wore clothes which suited them and they might actually wear on a night out.

Here we see dapper Walter Hagen pointing out some landmarks, with his 1929 US team in barber-shop mode on the Savoy's roof.

Double-breasted, slicked-back and well-pressed - a look for the ages.
