Ian Poulter was predictably involved in an amusing moment as the build-up to the Ryder Cup continued at Le Golf National on Tuesday.
Our daily diary looking at all things Team Europe brings you details of Tommy Fleetwood's hair, an unrecognised CEO and the missing golf clubs of a One Direction member.
SMELLS LIKE TEAM SPIRIT
Fleetwood is renowned for his flowing locks and, if Poulter is to believed, the European rookie's hair smells just as good as it looks.
As the home side prepared for a photo shoot on the 10th fairway at Le Golf National, Poulter took the opportunity to get up close and personal with his team-mate.
After thrusting his nose towards Fleetwood's hair, Poulter said: "It's beautiful! And it smells good!"
MOORE THE MERRIER
A video of impressionist Conor Moore raised plenty of smiles in the European team room on Monday evening.
"He kind of took everyone off in the team, and it was extremely funny," said Poulter, before Fleetwood revealed how much he had enjoyed Moore's impression of Francesco Molinari.
When Molinari was asked about it in his news conference, the Italian replied: "I'm actually thinking of it all the time now answering questions, trying to smile a bit more."
Asked if he was giving the media a "new Francesco", Molinari broke into a wide grin and said: "Can't you tell the difference?!"
KEEPING A LOW PROFILE
Omnisport spotted European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley on a late-morning stroll around the course.
Yet the American was certainly not recognised by three elderly gentlemen, who asked the passing Pelley if he could take a photo of them in front of the first green, clearly oblivious when it came to his identity.
Pelley kindly obliged the fans, before walking away with a chuckle.
“I love that those guys had no idea who you are,” I said to Pelley as he departed the scene.— Chris Devine (@chrsdvn) September 25, 2018
“Not a clue,” he chuckled.
NO CLUBS FOR NIALL
The Ryder Cup Celebrity Match took place on Tuesday, with Niall Horan among the competitors.
Yet things did not initially go to plan for the pop superstar, who arrived on the driving range only to find that his clubs were not there.
Thankfully, they were soon retrieved, enabling Horan to team up with actor Jamie Dornan.
