Some images of the victorious European Ryder Cup team toasting their success with Moët & Chandon champagne.

I was fortunate to be at Gleneagles on Friday and I was even more fortunate to attend as a guest of Moët & Chandon. They were official suppliers to the Ryder Cup and it was Moët & Chandon champagne that the European Team sprayed all over fans and each other in celebration of their incredible 16.5 to 11.5 point victory yesterday.

As someone who generally enjoys a drink or three, I must confess I always get a little worried when I see such liberal wastage of fine wine. “Don’t spray it all,” I always think. “No, stop pouring it out, stop pouring!”

But it’s great fun and these pictures confirm just how much the players and Captain McGinley were enjoying their Moët & Chandon soaking. Well done boys - thoroughly deserved!

Growing up in the North East of Scotland, golf runs through his veins and his passion for the sport was bolstered during his time at St Andrews university studying history. He went on to earn a post graduate diploma from the London School of Journalism. Fergus has worked for Golf Monthly since 2004 and has written two books on the game; "Great Golf Debates" together with Jezz Ellwood of Golf Monthly and "The Ultimate Golf Book" together with Neil Tappin (also of Golf Monthly)... Fergus once shanked a ball from just over Granny Clark's Wynd on the 18th of the Old Course that struck the St Andrews Golf Club and rebounded into the Valley of Sin, from where he saved par. Who says there's no golfing god?
