Figures from across the golf world took to social media to express their grief and support for the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris that took the lives of at least 129 people on Friday, while leaving hundreds of others injured.

At the European Tour’s BMW Masters in Shanghai, players wore black ribbons on their caps to show their solidarity with the people of France and all those affected by this tragedy.

Golfer Benjamin Hebert of France is in the field at the BMW Masters. According to the Associated Press, “Hebert, who shot a 71 on Saturday, posted a picture of himself wearing a white hat and glove with the words “Pray for Paris” written across them, as well as black pants and a green shirt. His tweet read, ‘Black for mourning, green for hope, white for peace.'”
