Ormskirk Advertiser - - Celebrations -

SOUTH­PORT’S Tommy Fleet­wood ad­mits his record-break­ing Ry­der Cup de­but ex­ceeded all ex­pec­ta­tions, even if he only got a few min­utes to en­joy his son’s first birth­day.

Fleet­wood and Francesco Moli­nari be­came the first Euro­pean pair to win all four of their matches to­gether, with Moli­nari go­ing on to beat Phil Mick­el­son in the sin­gles to record the first per­fect 5-0 record by a Euro­pean.

And although Fleet­wood ran into an in­spired Tony Finau on Sun­day to lose his 100 per cent record, the four points he ac­crued at Le Golf Na­tional equalled the best per­for­mance by a Euro­pean rookie in the con­test, set by Thomas Pieters at Hazel­tine in 2016.
