For years Tommy Fleetwood has been a model of top amateur golf in England. In 2008, Fleetwood finished runner-up at The Amateur Championship. A year later, he finished T4 at the Brabazon Trophy, won the Scottish Open Amateur and was a member of the GB&I Walker Cup squad at Merion Golf Club. This year, Fleetwood, No. 20 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, has two runner-up finishes, at the New South Wales Amateur and Spanish International Amateur, a fifth-place finish at the Lytham Trophy, and last week in Sweden helped England win the European Team Championship.
