The best pics as the Irish rugby team test themselves on a Ryder Cup golf course

The best of the pictures as they try to tame Celtic Manor.

AFTER ALTON TOWERS left some players emotionally scarred two weeks ago, Joe Schmidt’s side had a more relaxing down-day this afternoon.

With the squad based for the week at Celtic Manor in Newport, the players were able to avail of their spectacular golf course which hosted the Ryder Cup in 2010.

And the Inpho team were following the players around the fairways, picking up some great shots along the way.

This one for example, is pretty spectacular.

Dave Kearney did his best impression of the guy from the PGA Tour logo while out on the practice range.

Before taking a fine divot once he hit the course.

As did Ian Madigan, who was diligent enough to replace his divot.

But the Leinster man seems to have had a decent day out on the course.

He seemed pretty pleased with himself…

Before he and Simon Zebo went for a pretty badass looking spin.

Head down, follow through.

Cian Healy was one of the few with actual golf shoes. He probably murdered this ball.

The endless wait for a putt to drop…

And then it does.

Meanwhile, Rory Best may still be out on the course. So determined.
