On Saturday, the skies above Medinah have intermittently been marked with brief — and funny — messages of support for the European Team. A gambling site based in the UK, PaddyPower.com, claims to be behind the sky writing and is soliciting calls from followers on Twitter for potential “sky tweets” with the hashtag #GoEurope.

Check out the message to Tiger…


Among the early messages that generated a lot of attention, including a post at The Big Lead, was “Seen Tiger? #GoEurope”

With Woods benched on Saturday morning for the first time in his Ryder Cup career, he may not have been around to see the words. But loads of others did.

Not all of the messages were pointed jabs at the U.S. Team, and its most famous member. One of the sky tweets was a tribute to Seve Ballesteros, the Spanish golf icon and Ryder Cup stalwart who passed away in May 2011.
