TOMMY… TOMMY FLEETWOOD
Major champion in waiting. Greens in reg machine. Ryder Cup rookie sensation. Social media sidekick to an icy cool Italian, the other half of Moliwood.
What’s not to love about Tommy Fleetwood who will bring those flowing locks and the fluid ambition of a second successive European money-list title to Jumeirah Golf Estates?
It’s amazing to think how far the 27-yearold Englishman has come from the low of the 2016 BMW PGA Championship when he openly admits he stood on the tee and had no idea where he’d hit it. As the defending two-time Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship winner, Fleetwood is something of a desert specialist but wasn’t happy finishing a lowly T-21 on Earth last November, a performance just good enough to nervously edge Justin Rose to the title of European Tour No. 1. Indeed, Fleetwood has just one DP World Tour Championship top-10 in five starts and a 70.25 stroke average that will need to be trimmed if he is to do the JGE double.
A 70.25 STROKE AVE WILL NEED TO BE TRIMMED IF HE IS TO DO THE JGE DOUBLE.
