Baby delight for golfer Tommy
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.
