one of the best golfers; RYDER CUP 1927 2006 VALHALLA.

Byline: JAMES McNAMARA

HE may be one of the best golfers in the world but Nick Faldo is never going to be let loose on the international catwalk.

The captain of the European Ryder Cup team is responsible for choosing the uniform for the rest of his golfing colleagues. Faldo has fearlessly sacrificed style for comfort, going for flight wear of suede zip-up jackets, blue polo shirts and brown slacks. And on the course of Valhalla khaki slacks, khaki and white polo shirts and a khaki baseball cap put the finishing touches to the most bland Ryder Cup uniform in history. The sports casual look plumped for by Faldo wouldn't look out of place hanging in Alan Partridge's wardrobe.

Let's hope the boring clothes with a style bypass aren't a reflection of the European team's form on the green.
