United States’ Rickie Fowler had an awkward moment amidst the jubilation of his team’s Ryder Cup victory and he didn’t do much to hide his feelings in front of the camera. The USA had beaten Europe to lift the Ryder Cup after a gap of eight years and the team had called on their better halves and girlfriends to join in on the celebrations.

Only Fowler had none and his bachelor life was made apparent in the photo that is going viral on the internet. The golfer himself was sporting enough to put it on his own Instagram account. While his team-mates were cozying up, Fowler was left alone and decided to be the only one to look into the camera with an expression to suit the situation.

The internet has been teeming with comments and shares for the image with many saying that it may turn out to be the pic of the tournament and also saying that this may just be the beginning of the new sporting super-meme. If so, it won’t be the first time a sportsman’s face has become a meme. Chinese Basketball legend Yao Ming’s laughing face has been immortalised by one of the most recurring memes being generated from a screen grab of one of his press conferences.

Rickie Fowler is part of the USA led by captain Davis Love that clinched the prestigious Ryyder Cup back from the Europeans after an eight-year absence.
