Fleetwood sets sights on Stateside glory

Tommy Fleetwood is eager to make up for lost time as he heads back to the PGA Tour.

The Southport star will make his return to action on 23th July at the 3M Open before he targets the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational and then the first Major of the year, the US PGA Championship.

Fleetwood, who has yet to taste a Stateside success, finished second behind Shane Lowry at last year's Open Championship and a first Major may not be too far away after he finished in the top-five in two successive US Opens in 2017 and 2018.

It's my craft and I want to keep seeing how good I can get.

He missed the cut the last time he was in action at the Arnold Palmer Invitational but that performance came a week after he finished third at the Houston Open, when he was two shots behind Sungjae Im after carding a disappointing final round of 71.

But Fleetwood has been working hard on his game during his time out of competitive action in preparation for a busy late summer.

Rather than take a potentially easier step back into the action on the European Tour, the Lancastrian is plotting a return Stateside.

This week, the PGA Tour heads to Muirfield, Dublin, Ohio for the Workday Charity Open, where Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Brooks Koepka and Patrick Cantlay will be among the field.

"On a week-to-week basis, everything stays the same," Fleetwood told Sky Sports. "As soon as you get out playing you want to win tournaments and you want to keep improving as a golfer.

"It's my craft and I want to keep seeing how good I can get."

Fleetwood is 41.00 to win the US PGA Championship.
