Euro 2020: How England’s golfers have been relishing their team’s run to the final

Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Tyrrell Hatton and Matt Fitzpatrick may have one eye on the Open Championship but they’ve also been cheering on Gareth Southgate’s men.

With next week's Open Championship at Royal St George's on the horizon, England's best golfers have plenty to focus on as they prepare for the final major of 2021.

Plenty are taking part in this week's Scottish Open, another money-spinning event, but that hasn't stopped them keeping a close eye on England's heroics in Euro 2020.

An extra-time winner from Harry Kane against Denmark on Wednesday night put England into their first major final since the 1966 World Cup.

They'll take on Italy on Sunday evening at 8pm which will be ideal timing for those involved at the business end of this week's tournament at The Renaissance Club. Plonk down the clubs, grab a beer and seek out the nearest big TV.

A scan of social media shows that Euro 2020 has been a massive talking point for golf's top players over the last month. And England's heroics at Wembley on Wednesday sparked plenty of interaction.

Here's how some of the players have been reacting to events, including the two semi-finals: England vs Denmark and Italy vs Spain.
