Guardiola And Jones

Friendly fourball: Gareth Jones, head PGA pro at Sandiway (second right) with European Tour star Tommy Fleetwood (second left), Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola (right) and Marcus Guardiola (left).

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola opted for a round of golf with PGA Professional Gareth Jones and European Tour star Tommy Fleetwood rather than watch his team crowned Premier League champions on Sunday.

While Guardiola, his son Marcus, and Fleetwood played at Sandiway with Jones, the host club’s pro, Manchester United lost surprisingly to West Bromwich Albion to give City an unassailable lead at the top of table.

In doing so, Guardiola stayed true to his word after City’s 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on the previous day when he said he would be playing golf instead of watching United entertain West Brom. 

Fleetwood, meanwhile, took time off from a busy schedule to play at the Cheshire club and Jones said: : "Tommy enjoys playing here. It was just a friendly fourball."
