Tommy Fleetwood Player Profile And What's In The Bag
IT HAD been three years since Tommy Fleetwood's last victory - at the Nedbank Challenge at Sun City in South Africa. Since then there have been several near misses and some bitter disappointments.
The Englishman had a poor season in 2021 but he has shown much better form throughout 2022 and he crowned it by returning to Sun City and pipped Ryan Fox to the title thanks to a sparkling final round of 67 and a 72-hole total of 277, 11 under par.
Had Fox won he would have overtaken Rory McIlroy at the head of the rankings heading to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.
