Tommy Fleetwood is one of Europe’s leading golfers, having achieved success internationally as a four-time European Tour winner and a Ryder Cup player.
Born on 19 January 1991, in Southport, a costal town in the north west of England renowned as a popular golfing area, Tommy first took up the game at his local municipal course before showing promise as a junior at Formby Hall under the tutelage of Norman Marshall.

He went on to enjoy a decorated amateur career, finishing runner-up in the 2008 Amateur Championship and representing Great Britain & Ireland in the 2009 Walker Cup before turning professional the following year.

In 2011, he became the youngest player to win the European Challenge Tour Rankings at the age of 20 years and 290 days after earlier winning the Kazakhstan Open.

He claimed his first European Tour title in 2013 at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, and finished inside the top 50 on the Race to Dubai for four consecutive seasons before landing his second title in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in 2017, finishing a shot clear of Dustin Johnson and Pablo Larrazábal.

That victory was the catalyst for a superb 2017 season as he finished runner up in the WGC-Mexico Championship, fourth at the US Open and won a maiden Rolex Series title in the Open de France, breaking into the top ten on the Official World Golf Ranking.

Tommy went on to finish the year as Europe’s Number One player, winning the European Tour’s Race to Dubai crown ahead of fellow Englishman Justin Rose, receiving the prestigious Seve Ballesteros Award as Player’s Player of the Year.

He successfully defended his Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship title in 2018 and he came agonisingly close to a first Major Championship when he finished runner up in the US Open Championship at Shinnecock Hills, posting a final round 63 – the equal lowest in a US Open and the lowest final round in any Major Championship – to finish one shot behind Brooks Koepka.

Tommy made a record-breaking Ryder Cup debut at Le Golf National in France that September, winning four points out of four alongside his friend Francesco Molinari en route to a memorable 17½-10½ victory for Team Europe.

A husband and a father, Tommy launched the Tommy Fleetwood Golf Academy in May 2019 to give kids the opportunity to take up golf and to widen the sport’s appeal. His first Academy opened at Formby Hall.

In November 2019 Tommy beat Marcus Kinhult in a play-off to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City in South Africa.  Featuring three eagles in one round and starting the final round six shots off the lead but carded a seven-under 65, to finish on 12 under par.

Tommy made his second appearance in Team Europe for the 2021 Ryder Cup in Wisconsin and in November 2022 he defended his title at the Nedbank Challenge again winning ahead of Ryan Fox.
 
TFA Dubai opened in November 2022 and is partnered by DP World as part of their performance centre at Jumeirah Golf Estates. It’s success in the region has been huge and members have loved having Tommy as their local resident in Dubai.
 
In January 2023 Tommy was chosen by Luke Donald and Ryder Cup Team Europe to Captain the GB&I Team for the Hero Cup in Abu Dhabi, they lost unfortunately to Francesco Molinari’s Team Europe but Tommy loved the experience and the team bonding that grew from the week.
 
Just 8 months later, Tommy was part of the victorious Team Europe in the 2023 Ryder Cup and has started the 2024 season in style with victory at the Dubai Invitational.
 
In April 2024 Tommy had his best performance in Augusta by securing a top-five finish at the revered Masters Tournament.
