What did Tommy Fleetwood do in the Europe team room at Ryder Cup?

Tommy Fleetwood Europe

What on earth did Tommy Fleetwood do in the Team Europe team room at the Ryder Cup this year? That is what fans want to know.

Team Europe was beaten badly by the United States in the Ryder Cup this year, losing 19-9. Despite the defeat, Team Europe had tremendous camaraderie, according to their accounts. And it seems like Fleetwood did something in their team room that helped with their bonding.

On a few occasions during their post-event press conference, the entire group made reference to and had laughs about something Fleetwood did in the team room.

The first instance came when Ian Poulter was talking about how close they were. He mentioned the team room and gave a nod to Fleetwood, which left his teammates laughing.

“Only we know what happens in these team rooms, ay, Tommy?” Poulter said.

A few minutes later, things got really wild.

Europe captain Padraig Harrington was asked what his abiding memory would be. He then started cracking up, and the entire team started laughing for about 30 seconds like they had a big inside joke. Once again, they were laughing about Fleetwood in the team room.

The stuff the players were saying sounded somewhat like the Dani Rojas song from “Ted Lasso.”

Then later on, Viktor Hovland joked about getting to know his teammates better, “maybe a little too well.”

So what did Fleetwood do? Did he streak around the locker room singing his name to the tune of the Dani Rojas song? We need to know! Or maybe that’s just a secret that helped the team bond.

Tommy Fleetwood sent a perfect tweet on Thursday after making a hole-in-one at the Masters.

Fleetwood shot a 2-over 74 in his first round at Augusta National. He was four over through the first 15 holes, but that was until it all changed on 16. Fleetwood hit an ace on the par 3 16th to get back on track (video here).

He made par on 17 and 18 to finish at 74 and sent the following tweet:

He said it perfectly. Most golf fans can relate.

Fleetwood played even better on Friday, making four birdies on the front nine before giving back a few strokes on the back nine. His two-under 72 still allowed him to make the cut at even par, putting him tied for 21st. Everyone is chasing the leader Justin Rose, who is seven under after a brilliant first round on Thursday.

Video: Tommy Fleetwood drains hole-in-one at The Masters

Tommy Fleetwood made a bit of history on Thursday, joining the rare group of players to drain a hole-in-one in competitive play at The Masters.

Fleetwood stepped up to the 16th tee and delivered a memorable ace, making him the 32nd player in history to make a hole-in-one in tournament play at Augusta National.

The 16th is the most popular ace at Augusta. It has now contributed 23 of the 32 holes-in-one at The Masters, including one of the more recent ones in 2019.

The shot moved Fleetwood into a tie for 33rd on the leaderboard on day one of the tournament, sitting at +2 with two holes to go for the day.
