Budding bromance blossoms between Jamie Dornan and Brian O'Driscoll on the golf course
They are each heavyweights of their respective crafts and it seems Brian O'Driscoll and Jamie Dornan have bonded over their skills in a new endeavour.
BOD (36) and Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie (33) took part in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship today, a golf event in Scotland, and judging by these photos, a budding bromance blossomed.
The lads were clearly enjoying their time on the green, particularly Jamie who wowed the crowd and the commentators when he eagled the 18th during the first round of the championship.
“That’s up there as one of the most amazing feelings of my life. Whatever your standard, you have your moments in golf when you play a great shot, but it’s usually on some dirt track of a course.
"To do that here at St Andrews, on the 18th, well, that’s the closest I am going to get to winning the Open.
He added: “It’s a shame Rory [McIlroy] wasn’t here to see that, but I’ll be texting him to let him know.”
Jamie has taken time out of a busy schedule to take part. He recently wrapped filming Anthropoid in Prague and is lined up for the Fifty Shades sequel Fifty Shades Darker and was spotted holidaying in Ibiza just last week.
With three children at home between them, time on the green was probably a welcome break!
Jamie has a 21 month old daughter, Ducie, with actress Amelia Warner who he married in 2012, while Brian as a one-year-old son, Billy and daughter two year-old daughter Sadie with wife Amy Huberman.
Amy is currently wrapping on action movie The Fixer, which is filming in Dublin.
