UPDATE: Who would expect that a golfing match — even a world-renowned tournament — might start a little like an NFL Super Bowl? Musical performances, patriotic processions including flag-waving and flag-raising, and a fighter jet flyover were included during the opening ceremony of the 39th Ryder Cup in Medinah, Illinois Wednesday evening between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. [THANKS TO ALL WHO REPLIED WITH A COMMENT!]
Hearing a report of two F-16 fighter jets flying low and fast over Lombard, a west suburb of Chicago. No confirmation. Please comment below if you have seen anything.
