Roll of Honour

Ryder Cup player (2018, '21). Walker Cup player (2009). Multiple wins on the European Tour. European Tour Order of Merit (Race to Dubai) winner (2017).

Did you know?

During a distinguished amateur career Fleetwood won the Scottish Amateur Stroke Play (2009) and English Amateur (2010). He also achieved the ranking of world No.1 men's amateur player. After turning professional in 2010, he chalked up his first European Tour win at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in 2013.

Further European Tour success followed, but not until 2017, when he won the Abu Dhabi Championship and the French Open. These wins and other top ten finishes produced enough points for Fleetwood to land his biggest prize of the year, the European Tour Order of Merit (Race to Dubai), and an accompanying $1,250,000 bonus cheque.
