International competitions not only bring out the best in the players representing their flag, but also the fans that line up hours before the first tee shot is hit in order to set the scene for Presidents and Ryder Cups.
Most notably, The Fanatics, an Australian-based fan club that travels around the world every two years to try and help the International side pull out an unlikely victory over the United States in the Presidents Cup. If you watched any of this past week’s coverage, you undoubtedly saw and heard the yellow-clad army of men chanting and singing.

The Fanatics energy is only trumped by their creativity, taking popular songs and adjusting them to fit into a golf realm. Part of their genius is the ability to adapt to first-timers. It’s easy to come up with an Adam Scott song after watching the Aussie play in eight events, but it’s tougher to come up with something for rookies likeEmiliano Grillo or Si Woo Kim.
As it turns out, the Fanatics chant for Kim was a U.S. Team favorite. Both Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson got into the singing mood in the post-round winnder’s press conference.

And that was just the tip of the iceberg. The entire U.S. press conference is worth the watch.
