Ryder Cup heroes Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood have been grouped together for the opening two rounds of the Sky Sports British Masters at Walton Heath Golf Club.
The pair were hailed as conquering legends after winning all four of their matches together at Le Golf National, earning them the nickname ‘Moli-Wood’.
They are also the first European duo in history to achieve that feat.

Molinari went on to win his singles match against Phil Mickelson as well, fittingly providing his side with the winning point in the process.
