newsCO.com.au–Fleetwood starts bid to conquer America

February 15, 2018

“The next stage in my career would be to win on the PGA Tour,” Fleetwood told reporters. “If you want to be one of the world’s best players, you have to do it in America.”

Fleetwood kickstarted the new season with a dominant display to defend his Abu Dhabi title followed by a top-six finish in Dubai.

He remains keen to gather further momentum in the U.S. ahead of his second Masters appearances in April.

“I’ve done it in quite a few different scenarios in the last year – came fourth in the U.S. Open, second in the World Golf Championship in Mexico,” he added.

“So I want to contend and, yeah, it’s a slightly different challenge, but I feel courses like this suit my game if I play well. We’ve got two WGCs, some big PGA Tour events and then the Masters coming up and I just want to stay on that roll.”

Fleetwood will tee off the opening round at the Riviera Country Club in the company of American duo Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar.
