Chaska, Minn. (KMSP) - At the Ryder Cup you can count on three things: you are always going to have to walk a lot, on a day like Saturday you a probably going to sweat a little bit, and you also may have to wait.
It's one of the first decisions you make. Where do I go and how long should I wait?
"Just bide your time, wait until the spot opens up and seize the opportunity," a Ryder Cup spectator said.
At the 16th green, the best spot to witness history began filling up hours ahead of the first afternoon group.
As golfers were teeing off 5 holes away, fans were catching up on some sleep, knocking back a few beers and renewing centuries old rivalries.
Matt from Oklahoma helped pass the time with a chant off with a man from across the pond.
As the first group approached the green, small chants gave way to those of a different sort: A USA chant.
The reason for hours spent in the sun suddenly becoming perfectly clear; the privilege to witness history was proving to be well worth the wait.
"I've been to a lot of tournaments but I have never seen anything like this in my life," a Ryder Cup spectator said.
