SOUTH­PORT golfer Tommy Fleet­wood and part­ner Clare Craig are cel­e­brat­ing after the birth of their first child.

Tommy, 26. re­vealed the good news on Twit­ter last Thurs­day.

He wrote: “The most beau­ti­ful and proud mo­ment of my life! Franklin Fleet­wood born at 12.33 on 28/9/17 at 7pounds 6ounces.”

Tommy, a former Kew Woods and Scaris­brick Hall pupil, had been due to play in the Bri­tish Masters this week, but with­drew to be at home for the birth.

In a state­ment an­nounc­ing that de­ci­sion, the Birk­dale­born star said: “I wanted to give my­self ev­ery chance of play­ing this week, but be­ing there at the birth of your child is a special mo­ment in any­one’s life.”

The big mo­ment comes months after Tommy earned a hero’s re­cep­tion at the Open Cham­pi­onship at Royal Birk­dale.

Mes­sages of con­grat­u­la­tions poured in from fel­low golfers and other sports stars, in­clud­ing Liver­pool FC great Rob­bie Fowler.
