Tokyo Olympics: Tommy Fleetwood jokes that his Team GB teammates have asked to borrow a hairdryer

Tommy Fleetwood jokes that his Team GB teammates – including the physio and his golf captain – have asked to borrow a hair dryer at the athletes village… but he reveals that he does NOT use one to maintain his long locks

Tommy Fleetwood has hilariously jumped on the speculation that a hairdryer is the secret behind his locks when he revealed that some of Team GB’s teammates have asked to borrow one from the athletes’ village.

The 30-year-old’s signature long wavy hair has been an almost constant feature of his career as he currently hopes to add an Olympic medal to his trophy cabinet.

On his European Tour blog, Fleetwood, who currently represents Team Great Britain at the Olympics, insisted: ‘One thing I will NOT be contributing to the team is a hair dryer.

As much as this news shocks the world, I feel compelled to reveal that a man with my particular haircut does not travel with a blow dryer.

“The reason I’m sharing this little-known fact is that people keep asking if they can borrow my hair dryer! It all started the day after we got here.’

Fleetwood explained that he was first approached by the Team GB physio, before also being asked by the Team GB golf captain Nigel Edwards.

However, the conversation turned back to golf, with Fleetwood opting out, saying: “I was hoping writing all these things down would have a calming effect, but I think it just made me more excited about the Olympic experience because I’m so a lot to think about!

“I feel like I’ll be on the feverish end of the excitement scale for a few more days…”

Fleetwood shot a -3 in the first round of the men’s individual golf competition at the Olympics, with the Briton trailing Austria’s leader Sepp Straka by five strokes.
