Fleetwood wins first title since Abu Dhabi
Englishman Tommy Fleetwood carded three eagles in a scintillating final round 65 to claim a play-off victory over Swede Marcus Kinhult at the Nedbank Golf Challenge yesterday. The 2017 Race to Dubai winner started the day six shots behind leader Zander Lombard but surged up the leaderboard and into a play-off, which he won on the first extra-hole as Kinhult was off target with his drive and could only card a bogey five. It was his first tournament win since the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January 2018. “I made a great up and down on one and without that, the day could have been completely different. I was also really proud of how I played 17 and 18,” Fleetwood said. He is now second in this year’s Race to Dubai behind the Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, who was in a tie for third yesterday.
