Bad jumpers, dodgy strides
Payne Stewart and Justin Leonard at Brookline in 1999
But not even Payne Stewart could rescue this American outfit.

Often described as the ugliest scenes ever witnessed on a golf course, the US team's shirts on the final day of the 1999 Ryder Cup at Brookline were positively X-rated.

It can only be assumed that the designer responsible for these crimes of couture was too faithfully following Coco Chanel's advice that "fashion is made to become unfashionable".

An inquiry into how and why these shirts were ever made was only avoided because the Americans distracted everybody with their celebration shenanigans.
