Tommy Fleetwood’s Ryder Cup Outlook

Best asset: Moxie. Fleetwood has proven himself to be a big-game hunter, playing some of his best golf on some of the game’s biggest stages. There’s no reason to believe that won’t correlate to this event as well.

Worst asset: Inexperience. If we’re nit-picking, the only fault we can find with Fleetwood is that he hasn’t yet played a Ryder Cup, but the idea that rookies are at a disadvantage really is an antiquated notion.

Ryder Cup Confidence Rating: 8 out of 10. The proof is out there. When the pressure ramps up, Fleetwood’s A-game often shows up, too. Don’t be surprised if he’s Europe’s leading point-getter by Sunday evening.
