Golf Power Rank/Pebble/6. 6. OWGR: 11th. FedEx Cup: 124th. Tommy Fleetwood

Tommy Fleetwood doesn’t have the wealth of course experience at Pebble Beach like most guys in this week’s power rankings have.

What he does have is one of, if not the best, win of 2024. Fleetwood stared down Rory McIlroy in a star-studded final group on Sunday at the Dubai Invitational and won.

McIlroy provided some assistance by hitting some poor shots down the stretch, no doubt. Fleetwood was still strong in his own right, matching 54-hole co-leader McIlroy’s 67 and sinking a 16-foot birdie putt to win it in regulation on the 72nd hole.

“It's always very special when you play with one of your friends, one of the best players in the world. Challenging yourself against those guys,” Fleetwood was transcribed by ASAP Sports. “Like I said just before, Rory's been a very, very supportive influence on me over the past, since I've been him, really, but since we've been close. I've watched him do amazing things down the stretch in golf tournaments, and today was my turn.”

Fleetwood has a residence in Dubai and followed up his win with T-14th the next week at the Hero Dubai Desert Classic.

The Englishman has one PGA Tour start in 2024, a T-47th at The Sentry. He’s had a couple weeks off to prepare for his debut on the West Coast swing.

The recently-turned 33-year-old posted eight top-10s on the PGA Tour last season. He was efficient week to week with the stats to bear it out. Fleetwood ranked fifth in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee (1.699), and eighth in SG: Tee-to-Green (1.205).

There are still some questions about his putting when in contention. Overall, it was a strength to finish 14th in SG (.493). Making a clutch one like he did in Dubai should help.

Fleetwood is at Pebble Beach for the second time. His debut came at the 2019 U.S. Open where he finished T-65th (71-73-73-73).
