When players wore shorts for their practice rounds in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago, it was hailed across the media as a hugely positive step for the game.


But it was another piece of clothing that caught the eye ahead of this week’s Dubai Desert Classic, with long-haired English star Tommy Fleetwood caught wearing a Nike headband on the range on Tuesday.

We picked up on the attire and put it to our Twitter followers who, with the help of a retweet from the man himself, gave us their initial thoughts.













While the majority were negative, there were a few positive ones in there, too…







And a couple of hours later, we conducted a poll – which will runs until 5pm today (Tuesday) – to decide once and for all what people make of it.




Not that it seems to matter to Fleetwood though, who was out playing a practice round today again wearing a headband. Only this time it was black.
