Golfer Tommy Fleetwood hailed a hero for his headband initiative.

When golf players started wearing headbands during their practice rounds, it was billed across the sport as a hugely positive step for the game of golf.

A golfer wearing a headband was unheard until recently and is now setting a new trend.

The headband originated from a conversation I had with my caddie, my coach and my manager. We all sat around talking about it one day. My hair was at a stage where my hat wasn’t really keeping it in and I didn’t want to put it in a ponytail. A headband seemed to be the best solution. We thought it would be cool.
