Tommy Fleetwood won’t get the monkey off his back of being winless in the United States with a victory this week, but the Englishman could at least hoist his first PGA Tour trophy at this co-sanctioned event with the DP World Tour.

This is a good opportunity to do so considering his performance the last three years at the Genesis Scottish Open.

Fleetwood carded 69-68-69-67 to finish tied for first place in regulation in 2020. He lost to fellow countryman Aaron Rai in a playoff.

Tommy took T-26th (66-70-68-70) in 2021 and posted 73-69-67-67 for T-4th last year. In 2022, he was fourth in the field in strokes gained off-the-tee (1.02), 11th in SG tee-to-green (1.61), and 17th in SG putting (.81).

He has won before in Scotland, claiming the 2013 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. Fleetwood has a good record on links land with a couple top-fives and five results of T-33rd or higher in eight starts at The Open Championship.

While the 32-year-old comes to The Renaissance Club off of a missed cut in his last start at the Travelers Championship, it’s a rarity lately that he misses the weekend.

Fleetwood previously finished solo second at the RBC Canadian Open and T-5th at the U.S. Open. He owns five top-20s in his last seven starts and has missed just two cuts worldwide in 2023.

Fleetwood ranks seventh on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained per round (1.85). He’s in the top 35 in every category, including seventh in around-the-green (.414) and tee-to-green (1.41).

Bunker play is typically a good strength to have playing in the U.K. Fleetwood is 11th in sand saves (60.2%).
