Tommy Fleetwood ought to be arriving to Connecticut with a pep in his step.

The Englishman became the first player in U.S. Open history to post two different final-round 63s. Five years after carding a 7-under 63 at Shinnecock, Fleetwood did it again last week at Los Angeles Country Club.

His blistering final round in 2023 didn’t allow him to vault into contention, but it secured a big paycheck and a T-5th finish.

“I’m playing well. I’m lucky to have the people that I am working with,” Fleetwood was transcribed by ASAP Sports. “I think I have a good mix of sort of coaches and people that have been with me for a long time, and then the addition this year of Butch and Colby have been great. I speak to Bob Rotella regularly.”

Fleetwood’s right. He is playing well. He led the field last week in strokes gained tee-to-green, SG off-the-tee, and SG approach.

The 32-year-old has yet to get the monkey off his back of winning on the PGA Tour or in a major, but he’s trending toward reversing one or both of those trends.

Fleetwood came ever so close a couple weeks ago when Nick Taylor poured in a miraculously long eagle putt to beat him on the fourth playoff hole at the RBC Canadian Open.

Fleetwood owns five top-20s in his last six starts. He’s missed just one cut since February and won late in 2022 on the DP World Tour at the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

Fleetwood ranks seventh on the PGA Tour this season in total strokes gained per round (1.946). He’s top 50 in every SG category, including 10th in around-the-green (.442).

The long-locked golfer is making his third Travelers Championship appearance. His debut at TPC River Highlands in 2019 resulted in T-13th (66-69-67-69) and he returned last year for T-46th (69-66-70-71).
