Edinburgh Airport receives American Ryder Cup team

Car Hire Edinburgh Airport are getting into the swing of things ahead of the prestigious golf tournament.

The American golf Ryder Cup team has arrived at Edinburgh Airport before moving on to Gleneagles. Captain Tom Watson led his team down the steps to greet officials and the media. Rickie Fowler sported a new haircut on his arrival, with USA shaved into his hair.

Watson was the captain of the last successful US team on European soil which was way back in 1993 at the Belfry. At 65, he is the oldest Ryder Cup captain in the 87-year history of the matches. Watson said “We arrive as underdogs, but no-one in the team believes we are underdogs. We are excited to be here and we will be as competitive as ever.”

European captain Paul McGinley said of Watson “He is a real competitor and it is a very strong team. Arguably we have the strongest team ever, but as strong as we are the US have a strong team too.”
