What football team does your favourite golfer support? (feat. Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm & Matt Fitzpatrick)

Eagle Links Golf knows a thing or two about combining passions. After all, what's better than smashing a drive down the fairway while proudly sporting your favourite football team's colours? It turns out, many golfing greats are also die-hard football fans. So, grab your driver (and maybe a scarf?) and let's tee off on some interesting team allegiances:

  • Manchester United Mania: Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry, and Brooks Koepka form a formidable trio on the course, and guess what? They share a love for the Red Devils! McIlroy, a Northern Irish legend, has even taken photos with United stars and celebrated victories at Old Trafford.
  • A Toffees Tale: Tommy Fleetwood throws his support behind his hometown club, Everton. A nervy end to the season awaits Tommy and his fellow toffees.
  • Blues on the Course: Justin Rose isn't shy about his love for Chelsea. He'll be hoping that the blues can turn their form around and return to the European stage.
  • Beyond the Borders: Not all allegiances are local. Billy Horschel, an American golfer, is a passionate West Ham supporter. This dedication might surprise some, but it highlights the global reach of the beautiful game.
  • European Enthusiasts: Jon Rahm proudly supports Athletic Bilbao, a Spanish club known for its unique Basque Country heritage. Likewise, Francesco Molinari cheers on Juventus, the Italian giants. These golfers show their appreciation for European football's diverse landscape.
  • Sheffield Steel: We can't forget Matt Fitzpatrick! This rising star and US Open champion is a lifelong supporter of Sheffield United. Fitzpatrick has been vocal about his love for the Blades, even trying (unsuccessfully) to invest in the club.

This is just a glimpse into the world of golfers and their football fandom. There are many more out there, each with their own team colours and passionate cheers. So, the next time you're on the course, keep an eye out – you might just find yourself playing alongside a fellow golf and football fanatic!
