A whole host of European Ryder Cup stars were joined by their significant others at Wimbledon this week.
Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Sergio Garcia, Danny Willett, Lee Westwood and Thomas Bjorn were all photographed together in their Sunday best as they took in the sights with their wives and girlfriends at the All England Club:

Last week’s Irish Open winner Jon Rahm was also in attendance, albeit a day later than his fellow European Tour stars, and the Spaniard found himself roasted on Twitter by none other than Thomas Pieters for sporting some rather unusual attire:

No doubt the Irish Open trophy he just won will help ease Rahm’s pain.
Sam Horsfield was literally lost for words after his maiden European Tour win.
The American sits atop the leaderboard despite a mixed third round on Saturday.
The Englishman saw a commanding lead cut after a stuttering back nine.
Brooks Koepka made a not-so-subtle dig at Bryson DeChambeau’s “anthill” moment from the first round in Memphis.
The tournament marked the resumption of the tour.
Horsfield fired an eagle and seven birdies in a second round of 63 at the Forest of Arden to share the halfway lead with Sebastian Garcia Rodriguez.
Koepka carded a superb 62 to take a two-stroke lead after the opening day.
A change in date from August to May last year placed the tournament second in line behind the Masters, in calendar terms at least.
The four-time major winner shot 62 in his opening round.
