Now this was a much more uplifting story. Billy Horschel brought out a new bag in practice adorned with the colours and emblem of West Ham United, with kind permission from the club.
Billy Horschel, like Francesco Molinari and Paul McGinley, is an avid West Ham supporter even though he lives in Florida. He began his support when in college he saw the film Green Street on DVD and was intrigued to find out about the club. He watches all their premiership matches from ABC live broadcasts in America.
When he won the WGC – Dell Technologies Matchplay in March he received a text of congratulations from club captain Mark Noble who will be watching him in practice at Sandwich tomorrow.
Selected practice rounds can be watched live on theopen.com website in the morning, and also on Sky Sports from 2pm.
Matt Fitzpatrick is also having the Sheffield United emblem on the range. Will Ian Poulter have a big Arsenal logo on his bag too?
