PHOTO: Rory McIlroy joined Fowler, Bubba shirtless, in a kilt, wearing a wig


This must have been some after-party. Players from both Ryder Cup teams were photographed on Sunday night (early Monday, maybe) wearing kilts, women's wigs and no shirt.

Hunter Mahan (who was smart enough to be behind the camera) first posted pictures of Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson donning the, uh, unconventional outfit. Then early Monday morning, a photo of world No. 1 Rory McIlroy in the same garb surfaced.

Consider this golf's equivalent of a toga party, we guess. Some fans are going to be mad that the Americans didn't take the 16.5-11.5 loss at Gleneagles more harshly, but it is an exhibition after all. These guys are friends and know they're really lucky to be on this stage.
