Europe's Ryder Cup team board flight to US wearing matching outfits as Westwood and Co prepare for battle this weekend

EUROPE'S Ryder Cup team have boarded their flight to the US as they prepare to do battle in the 2021 Ryder Cup this weekend.

Captain Padraig Harrington posed with the trophy alongside Shane Lowry, Bernd Wiesberger, Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton and Lee Westwood as they set off to Wisconsin in matching outfits.


The European team will be hoping to hold onto the Ryder Cup trophy that they claimed three years ago in France.

The coronavirus pandemic delayed the world-famous tournament by a year but it now returns this weekend.

And an excited Ian Poulter tweeted: "I wonder what week it is," followed by a European flag emoji and a trophy.

Westwood also posted a similar message on his Twitter.

The pictures of Team Europe posted on social media are getting golf fans very excited about the return of the sport's flagship event.

One fan said: "What a team 12 awesome players. Ryder Cup Europe plus all the vice captains and Padraig Harrington. Bring it back home again."
