LOOK: The iconic Ryder Cup photo of single Rickie Fowler amid players, wives

There were a lot of great pictures that captured the emotion, intensity and brilliance of the 2016 Ryder Cup. And no one is going to remember any of them because of a great photo of Rickie Fowler.

Fowler and his U.S. Ryder Cup teammates, including captain Davis Love III and the five vice-captains, were reveling in their 17-11 win over Europe at Hazeltine, capturing the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2008 and just the third time in the last 23 years. For the other guys on the team, they had their wives and girlfriends on stage, and they all turned toward each other to create what was tantamount to a make-out sesh in public.

Except for Rickie Fowler, who is single and ready to mingle. And what does a single guy do with no one to kiss when everyone around you is sucking face?


Fowler looks square in the Getty Images camera and shrugs like a champ.

Yeah, he doesn't have a girlfriend for the photo opp, but he probably had a lot better night...and will have a better month...than the attached dudes.
