Ryder Cup heroes Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari drawn together at British Masters

If you are a golf fan in the south-east, then “Moliwood The Sequel’ is coming to a course near you very very soon. 

Indeed, one of the greatest double acts ever to grace the Ryder Cup arena will be performing together again at the British Masters which starts on Thursday.

After their heroics in the resounding home victory at Le Golf National two weeks ago – when they became the first Europe pair ever to win four out of four matches – it was hardly a surprise that the organisers “drew” Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari together for the first two rounds at Walton Heath.

Granted they will be in opposition this time around and Fleetwood will be desperate to close the gap on his Italian friend at the top of the European Tour’s order of merit standings.

But as the other member of the marquee threeball, Thorbjorn Olesen – the young Dane who was also in that winning Ryder Cup side – might still feel something of a golfing gooseberry.

With more than 15,000 expected on the opening day at the Surrey venue, the „Moliwood“ group will obviously attract the brunt of the afternoon attention when they tee off at 12.25pm.

In the morning, Justin Rose the tournament host, will undoubtedly be the star turn when he goes off in the company of defending champion Paul Dunne and fellow Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick.

Rose could make it a famous weekend in front of his local support. He requires a top two finish to reclaim the world No 1 position.
