Tommy Fleetwood Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Mon 14 Nov 2022

Article Updated - January 2024

Tommy Fleetwood birdied the final two holes to win the Dubai Invitational by one shot from Rory McIlroy and Thriston Lawrence.

It was a rollercoaster round from McIlroy, who led by a shot going into the last hole but hooked into the water and carded a bogey.

Overnight leader Fleetwood capitalised as he drained his birdie putt to post a four-under 67 and finish on 19 under.

South Africa's Lawrence set the clubhouse target after a superb 64.

Englishman Fleetwood held a one-shot lead over world number two McIlroy going into the final round and extended his advantage to three after the opening 10 holes.

McIlroy, who also found water on the front nine, birdied the 11th, 12th and 13th to go level with Fleetwood but faltered on the 14th with a three-putt bogey from just two feet.

The four-time major winner bounced back with an excellent birdie on 15 and moved in front when Fleetwood dropped a shot at the next hole.

Both players birdied the 17th but McIlroy hooked his drive at the final hole and could only manage a bogey.

Player Profile

Fleetwood was born in Southport on January 19, 1991. He was a top amateur, winning the Scottish Amateur Strokeplay in 2009 and the English Amateur in 2010 and playing for GB&I in the Walker Cup in 2009. In July 2010 he finished second in the English Challenge on the Challenge Tour, while still an amateur.

He turned pro in 2010 and secured his European Tour card for 2012. His first victory came in 2013 at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. He had to wait until 2017 for his second win, at the Abu Dhabi Championship. He also finished second at the Shenzhen International and was fourth at the US Open. In 2017 he also secured the Race to Dubai.

He won the Abu Dhabi Championship in 2018 and finished second at the US Open after closing with a round of 63. In 2018 he formed an unbeaten partnership with Open champion Francesco Molinari as Europe thrashed the USA in the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National. 

In 2019 he finished second behind Shane Lowry at The Open and won the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the end of 2019.

He won the 2022 Nedbank Challenge, his first win for three years. His victory in Dubai was his seventh on the DP World Tour.

But it is a different story in America. He has made 127 starts on the PGA Tour, making 106 cuts. He has finished second five times, third four times and had 22 top-five finishes but is still looking for his first victory.

His win in Dubai takes him from 15th to 11th in the world rankings and to fourth place in the Race to Dubai.
