Patriotic Ryder Cup Fans Loving National Anthem, Mocking NFL

The Ryder Cup itself is nationalistic in nature, so it’s no surprise that America’s national anthem has played a major role at the 2016 Ryder Cup matches.

It was also Arnold Palmer’s final wish for the Ryder Cup.

“We don’t play ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ enough during the matches, and that is one of the things I think we need to do.”

With the recent politicization of America’s anthem, specifically by those in the NFL, many fans are getting fed up and boycotting. So it was no surprise to see golf and Ryder Cup fans gloat on Twitter.
