ROME – Patrick Cantlay may not have been on the winning Ryder Cup team on Sunday, but he’s got big plans for Monday.

Cantlay, 30, and fiancée Nikki Guidish, are tying the knot in Rome.

“Well, I am getting married tomorrow, yes,” Cantlay said during a press conference afterwards. “I’m very excited about it.”

The press room gave him a rare round of applause.

His wedding plans came up during a discussion about his headwear. Cantlay famously went hatless at the Ryder Cup, which became a hot topic of conversation. He claimed it was because the team hat didn’t fit his head while one report cited sources saying it was to protest the fact that players don’t get paid directly to play in the Ryder Cup.

There was some debate whether Cantlay chose not to wear a hat during the Ryder Cup because he didn’t want to have tan lines for his wedding day. That theory was posed by Stefan Schauffele, Xander’s father.

“I apologize for anything my dad said,” Schauffele said, breaking into laughter.
