What if you're getting neither?

That's the question facing Corey Pavin, the U.S. captain for the Ryder Cup who ordered some butt-ugly rain gear for the players this year. The problem? They're not keeping the players dry. According to The Associated Press, the Americans were forced to visit the merchandise tent to buy about 20 replacement suits.

"We were disappointed with the performance of them, and we just fixed it," Pavin said, according to the AP. "They were not doing what we wanted them to do, so we went out and bought some more waterproofs."

That's awesome — making our country look foolish and keeping the players feeling all wet and uncomfortable. Sounds like a recipe for success.
