European Ryder Cup fans criticised for first tee boos

Ryder Cup 2018 First Tee

Paul Lawrie was amongst those disappointed by the European fans who booed American players on the first tee at Le Golf National this morning. 

The 1999 Open champion – who played in the match in 1999 and 2012 – took to Twitter to voice his disapproval of the unsportsmanlike behaviour that greeted both the arrival and formal introduction of most US players.

Former BMW PGA champion Simon Khan and English cricket legend Ian Botham were equally unimpressed. 

For the most part, other Twitter users seemed to be of the opinion that the booing was out of order.

However, some people took the opposite view...
