Patrick Cantlay, star player of Team USA at the Ryder Cup, has found happiness off the golf course by tying the knot with his partner Nikki Guidish. The couple got married in Rome, Italy just one day after Team Europe emerged victorious in the Ryder Cup.
Fans poke fun at Cantlay's hat stance
While Patrick Cantlay may have moved on from the heartbreak of the Ryder Cup loss, fans haven't forgotten his controversial hat stance during the competition. Cantlay's decision not to wear a hat during the tournament sparked a back and forth with golf fans.
Despite the loss, Cantlay inspired his team with a late fightback after a dismal start to the Ryder Cup. He was at the center of an unlikely controversy when he chose not to wear a hat on the course, igniting the fire in Team USA's attempt to make a comeback.
Reports suggested that Cantlay refused to wear a hat as a protest against Ryder Cup players not being paid to participate in the historic event. However, Cantlay disputed these claims, saying that the caps provided simply didn't fit his head.
European fans took advantage of the situation and waved their hats at Cantlay during the competition. He continued to go hat-less for the remainder of the tournament, prompting fans to joke that he should have worn one at his wedding to keep the hilarious drama going.
Fans share their thoughts on Cantlay's hat-less wedding
Fans couldn't help but comment on Cantlay's hat-less wedding, making light of the situation. One fan humorously suggested that Cantlay should have worn a hat to "round the bit out." Another remarked about the bold move of not wearing a hat for the wedding, while others playfully reminded him that he was still not wearing a hat.
Despite the jokes, Cantlay can at least cherish one happy memory from his time in Italy, as Europe's victory means Team USA is still without a Ryder Cup win on foreign soil since 1993.
