So another Ryder Cup is in the books,
00:02
and this one was so juicy, it might eventually require
00:04
one of those three-part reality TV reunion shows
00:07
hosted by Andy Cohen on Bravo.
00:09
What?
00:09
My wife watches them, not me.
00:12
Anyway, here's a look back at the five best parts
00:14
of the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris.
00:17
Number one, Moliwood.
00:19
Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood
00:21
were so good during Europe's victory,
00:23
they earned a celebrity couple nickname.
00:25
And then, they put forth another award-winning performance
00:28
with that video of them in bed together
00:31
with the Ryder Cup.
00:32
Fleetwood's wife jokingly asked on Twitter
00:35
if she should be worried.
00:36
No, Clare.
00:38
Eh, maybe a little.
00:40
Speaking of celebrity couples, number two.
00:43
Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky.
00:45
Leave it to the city of love
00:46
to bring these two lovebirds back together.
00:49
They look like they had a great time in Paris.
00:52
Especially DJ, who resumed his duties
00:54
as full-time Instagram photographer.
00:57
Seriously, how does he find the time
00:59
to be the world's number one golfer?
01:01
Anyway, forget about all those pre-Ryder Cup rumors
01:05
about these two because, well,
01:06
now there are post-Ryder Cup rumors about these two.
01:10
Which leads us to number three.
01:11
Team USA drama.
01:13
Following the loss, Patrick Reed threw Jordan Spieth,
01:16
captain Jim Furyk, even Tiger Woods
01:18
completely under the bus.
01:20
Apparently, the artist formerly known as Captain America,
01:23
and his wife, weren't happy with him
01:25
not playing with Spieth.
01:27
Or about him being benched.
01:28
Despite him going through two sleeves of golf balls
01:31
on his way to shooting something in the mid-80s
01:33
during his second match.
01:35
Pretty bold, Patrick.
01:37
Number four, Sergio Garcia.
01:40
Considered the most questionable captains pick coming in,
01:44
the Spaniard went three and one
01:45
to become the Ryder Cup's all-time leading pointer.
01:48
After breaking the record of Nick Faldo,
01:50
a man who once called him useless
01:52
after captaining him at the 2008 Ryder Cup,
01:55
Garcia said this.
01:56
I have passed some of my heroes today.
01:59
And Nick Faldo.
02:00
Boom. Roasted.
02:02
Hopefully Team USA is taking notes, though.
02:04
If you're going to throw daggers around,
02:07
do it at people who are no longer involved with your team.
02:10
And finally, number five.
02:12
Wine guy.
02:14
Check out this fan who caught the attention of NBC's cameras
02:17
for watching the action with a full bottle of wine.
02:20
He instantly joined the pantheon of greatest Ryder Cup fans
02:24
that include cigar guy in 2010,
02:27
and putt guy in 2016.
02:31
Wine guy is also not to be confused with whining guy.
02:35
That's Patrick Reed.
02:37

02:38
