Watch: Super patriotic crowd sings national anthem on the first tee of the #RyderCup

Watch: Super patriotic crowd sings national anthem on the first tee of the #RyderCup

CHASKA, Minn. – The opening tee shot of the Ryder Cup is one of the most electric scenes in golf. Saturday morning at Hazeltine continued that tradition. On Friday, chants of the old-standby "U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!" were the most popular with plenty of "I Believe" cheers sprinkled in. But on Saturday morning, the fans busted out the big gun -- with a rousing rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner . Fans belted out the anthem as the sun rose over the first grandstand, and if that wasn't enough to pump up the U.S. team, then there's nothing more we can do for them. It did seem to work: The duo of Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson were first off the tee and promptly birdied the opening hole. Thanks to SB Nation's Brendan Porath for the video.
