Joey Barton has 'unforgettable' day at Troon

2016 07 Joey Barton
THE OPEN

It’s been quite the week for new Rangers signing Joey Barton.


The midfielder, who is golf crazy and reportedly plays off a handicap of six, teamed-up with Danny Willett at Ibrox on Monday night as part of Callaway’s annual pre-Open event.

And on Wednesday, he was given a real treat as Rangers fan Marc Warren invited him, manager Mark Warburton and assistant David Weir down to Royal Troon.

What started as simply walking the course with the Scot turned into a fun matchplay game with Warren teaming up with Thomas Pieters against the might of Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker.




And to say Barton enjoyed himself was an understatement. He flooded his Instagram and Twitter feeds with pictures and videos and was clearly in admiration of what he saw from close quarters.
