'Moliwood' and Ryder Cup stars to reunite at Sky Sports British Masters at Walton Heath

Golf's hottest partnership will be reunited for the first time since the Ryder Cup at this week's Sky Sports British Masters.
Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari formed an unbeatable partnership at Le Golf National - becoming the first European paring to win four points from four consecutive matches - and their close friendship led to the duo being dubbed 'Moliwood'.
Fleetwood spent last week at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship - where he finished tied for second alongside Ryder Cup team-mate Tyrrell Hatton behind Lucas Bjerregaard - while Molinari took the week off after an intense summer that also saw him win the Open Championship in July.
Both players will be present at Walton Heath this week for the event hosted by another Ryder Cup hero in Justin Rose.
They will be joined by team-mates Thorbjorn Olesen, while Europe captain Thomas Bjorn is also in the field alongside his five vice captains - Lee Westwood, Luke Donald, Robert Karlsson, Padraig Harrington and Graeme McDowell.
Speaking at St Andrews last week, Fleetwood said he was proud of what he and Molinari had achieved against the Americans.
"It was great for us to have that contribution for the team. We were just part of that whole environment and that whole team," he said.
"I think from Friday morning when we were at our most nervous, to have that contribution which kind of sparked a bit of momentum I think was very important."
