Dressed down and out - Team USA feeling Ryder Cup loss

The US Ryder Cup team looked like they were leaving a baseball game rather than the most prestigious golfing tournament in the world.

The side were all dressed down in baseball caps and runners as they put the bitter disappointment at Gleneagles behind them.

Their attire is barely suitable for a round of pitch and putt, let alone a plush golf club.

USA's Bubba Watson looked like he was hitting the basketball court in baggy red shorts, a slogan white T-shirt and trainers - all topped off with sunglasses propped on top of his baseball cap.

The others didn't fare much better with Keegan Bradley and Zach Johnson looking slightly sharper in chino shorts - but still donning casual T-shirts, hoodies and caps.

The team were looking slightly worse for wear after they had partied hard with the European team the night before, following their 5-point loss to Europe on Sunday.

And with a long journey home ahead of them, they may not have felt the need the dress for the occasion.

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy certainly had a night to remember, popping champagne and partying into the early hours.

"We had a great time with the American team on Sunday night, they seemed in good spirits," McIlroy told Sky Sports.

"Tom [Watson] wasn't there, he didn't really hang around too much. All we know is we had a great captain and we did the things needed to win."
