Tommy Fleetwood (born 19 January 1991) is an English professional golfer who plays on the European Tour.

Fleetwood was born in Southport, Merseyside. He had a distinguished amateur career with included wins in the 2009 Scottish Amateur Stroke Play Championship[1] and the 2010 English Amateur,[2] and runner-up finishes in the 2008 Amateur Championship, the 2010 New South Wales Amateur and the 2010 Spanish Amateur and the 2010 European Amateur. He represented Great Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup in 2009. He also reached number 3 in The R&A's World Amateur Golf Ranking, and number 1 on the Scratch Players World Amateur Rankings.[3]

In July 2010 Fleetwood finished as runner-up to Daniel Gaunt in the English Challenge on Europe's second tier Challenge Tour.[4] He won the English Amateur at the beginning of August and turned professional shortly afterwards, making his début at the Czech Open on the European Tour,[5] where he made the cut and finished tied for 67th. In September 2011 he claimed his first Challenge Tour win at the Kazakhstan Open, which secured his place on the European Tour for 2012.

Fleetwood had a mediocre start to his first season on the European Tour, but after finding some form in the autumn he managed to retain his playing rights with a top ten finish in the South African Open his last tournament of the season.

In August 2013, Fleetwood won his maiden title on the European Tour at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. He won in a three-man sudden death playoff, after a birdie on the first extra hole to see off Stephen Gallacher and Ricardo González.[6]

On 22 May 2015, Fleetwood scored an albatross on the par-5 4th hole at the Wentworth Club during the second round of the BMW PGA Championship.
