The Ryder Cup players are not the only people on show at Hazeltine with their wives and girlfriends also taking the limelight throughout the week - meet some of the more unfamiliar faces on show this week


Ryder Cup Wives and Girlfriends

The Ryder Cup is a truly team event and with the players come their wives and girlfriends, who are there to support the team, but also to add a bit of glitz and glamour to proceedings.

Darren Clarke will be looking for support from his wife Alison, as he attempts to lead Europe to another victory on foreign soil.

Masters Champion Danny has already put his wife Nicole through a lot this year with a victory at Augusta in the Masters coming just days after the birth of their first child.

Rookies make up half the team this year for Europe and these young men will need the support of loved one while being in the pressure-cooker environment that playing an away Ryder Cup creates.

These unfamiliar faces will be beamed onto our television sets for the next week, so get to know them a bit better with our gallery below. Pictures will be updated for both teams throughout the week.
