Ryder Cup 2008: Opening Ceremonies

New, comments

Well, yesterday was my first day of a four-day stint at the Ryder Cup. The weather was awesome yesterday and the last of the practice rounds were played.  I took a ton of pictures, some of which I hope to share with you today.  From now on, cameras are not allowed on the golf course at Valhalla, so I can't take any more.  I will put up a few today and and the rest later on.

What has this to do with UK, you may ask?  Well, lots.  First of all, a former UK golfer, J.B. Holmes, is on the US Ryder cup team.  Second of all, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event for me to actually see a Ryder Cup live.  Trust me, it's a big deal.

Second, the UK band was there, along with the U of L band, to help launch the opening ceremonies.  As you will see below, I was kind of late to the opening ceremony and didn't have a very good spot, but it was fun nonetheless.

Today, the Foursomes begin.  This is the part of the event that has historically been dominated by the Europeans and the U.S. needs to be competitive in this area if we want to bring the Ryder Cup back from across the Atlantic.

After the jump, some pictures for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy
