VIDEO: Jamie Donaldson was ‘still drunk’ the morning after the Ryder Cup


If you saw the European celebratory news conference after winning their third-straight Ryder Cup on Sunday, you knew it was going to be a raucous night for the victors. For the man who clinched the win, that celebration carried on into the morning.

Jamie Donaldson appeared on Sky Sports to talk about the European win at Gleneagles and, in a moment of candor, said he was still inebriated from the night prior. Asked (at the :27 mark) if he had "taken it all in yet," having scored the clinching point, Donaldson said flatly, "No, because I'm still drunk."

The self-described late-bloomer can definitely take it deep with both the golf ball and drinking, which makes us here at GNN bigger fans of the Welshman.
