Tommy Fleetwood smiles again after three years without winning any trophies. The English golfer won the Nedbank Golf Challenge, in South Africa, after prevailing in an arduous comeback on the last date of the competition. Fleetwood needed to show his best level and make a 67, five under par, for a cumulative 277 (-11).
This made him beat the New Zealander Ryan Fox, who finally finished second. The Englishman, in this way, achieved his sixth title in the DP World Tour and managed to end a losing streak of three consecutive years without managing to be first in any competition.
Something strange for him to be second in 2019 at the British Open. The Englishman took a break when last July, after the British Open, he faced the death of his mother. That is why the golfer was very excited after winning in South Africa.
Tommy Fleetwood, statements
“For a while now one of my biggest goals has been to win with my whole family here,” Fleetwood said. A goal that he finally achieved even if he didn’t give them much time to celebrate together.
“My son always tells me that he never won anything, he brings me medals home from school and he tells me it’s because he never won at golf. He wanted to win with them here for a long time and they have come even though they have disappeared to go to the airport since the children have exams tomorrow” added the English.
“How cool is golf and sports. The emotions that come to you both good and bad is what makes it so special. The moment of victory is as beautiful as it is short to live it”, Fleetwood mentioned on his social networks after raising the trophy where he thanked “everyone who was with me every step of the way” and announced the “back to work”.
This victory for Fleetwood demonstrates the importance of never giving up even when things don’t go as they should. The Englishman wins a title again after three years without achieving it and shows that he is ready for the next golf season in which he hopes to win more titles than in recent years.
