Rickie Fowler's USA Haircut an Early Winner for the Americans at Ryder Cup

Rickie Fowler prepared for the 2014 Ryder Cup exactly as you would have expected -- he got "USA" shaved onto the side of his head.

That's Rickie's tweet above, thanking his bros at @youarenextbarbershop for getting him Ryder Cup ready before heading to Scotland.

Here's a closer look at Rickie, shortly after he arrived at Gleneagles for a practice round Monday:

Rickie's haircut has largely gotten a pass from the European press, who were more eager to make fun of European captain Paul McGinley's tartan jacket and gilet he sported while at Edinburgh Airport awaiting the arrival of the United States team:

So count this an early-week Ryder Cup victory for the United States team. There are still a few days left to even the score before play begins for real. Your move, Ian Poulter.
