Welcome to this week’s Social Eyes. Crans-Montana in Switzerland is widely considered one of the most beautiful stop-offs on the European Tour.



This is what it looks like in the summer.

But its appearance in the winter sure rivals it. Lee Westwood is on holiday there and posted this picture.

7th looks a bit tricky today!#cransmontana

And he even got some practice in. All while dressed in a very Christmassy onesie.

Preseason. I'm ready! Bring on Abu Dhabi! #cransmontana

Westwood and his caddie, Billy Foster, also enjoyed some curling.



But we’re not sure he’ll be making the Great Britain team for the 2018 Winter Olympics…

Ahead of the BMW South African Open, Rory McIlroy spent four days on safari.



He described it as ‘one of the best experiences of his life’ and, after watching this video he posted to Twitter, it isn’t hard to understand why.




Some very special invites arrived in the post last week for Shane Lowry, Tyrrell Hatton and Thomas Pieters – and it’s safe to say they were pretty chuffed.




Sergio Garcia will also have received his invite – but there are invitations of a different kind that will be in his mind as he announced that he’s getting married in 2017 to fiancée Angela Akins.




While Suzann Pettersen tied the knot back home in Norway.




In the wake of Jason Day’s comments about slow play, PGA Tour pro Ben Crane poked fun at his own reputation.

Met a guy who plays slower than me!

And finally…

Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston and Charley Hull were doing filming for Blue Peter the other day – and Beef’s reaction to the camera getting up close and personal is priceless.
