A cheeky promise, to be sure, but Thomas Bjorn has indeed followed through on getting ink on his bum.

Captain Thomas Bjorn holds the Ryder Cup as the European team celebrates at Le Golf National in Paris in September.

Europe soundly defeated the US 17½-10½ to win the Ryder Cup in Paris, to which Rory McIlroy said of his captain in the post-match press conference, “There could be a visit to a tattoo parlor coming very soon for Mr. Bjorn.”

“It’s going to go on a part that only Grace will see,” Bjorn said at the time, referring to his girlfriend, Grace Barber.

Well, 12 weeks later, Bjorn has delivered, as the final score has been etched on his rear.

“Told you I would do it,” Bjorn said into a video camera that recorded the event. “Merry Christmas.”
