Bad jumpers, dodgy strides
The US team in 1995
One of the most remarkable things about the Ryder Cup is that the players do not get paid for their efforts.

They do, however, get to keep their official team outfits. This should be a nice perk but the problem is, as we have already seen, these outfits are often not fit for non-golf situations.

Here we see Curtis Strange recoil in horror at the ensemble he had to wear at the 1995 Ryder Cup at Oak Hill.

This jacket is so bad it has even wiped the smile off Phil Mickelson's face.
