Memorial Power Rank 10/Fleetwood. 10. OWGR: 12th. FedEx Cup: 38th. Tommy Fleetwood

If I was assured of Ludvig Aberg’s health, he would have been in the top 10. Same goes for Robert MacIntyre, who briefly held down the No. 10 slot in this week’s power rankings before withdrawing.

Tommy Fleetwood was heavily in consideration for the top 10 from the get-go. But when all the PGA Tour’s best are here at once, he’s one of those guys who ended up on the cutting room floor due in part to a lack of course history.

This is the Englishman’s third start at the Memorial Tournament and first since 2017. He missed the cut his first two go-rounds, but he’s a vastly different (better’s probably the proper word) player now than he was then in some of his first starts on American soil.

Fleetwood last teed it up a week ago at the RBC Canadian Open where he posted T-21st. That’s close to the basement of his game the way he’s playing these days.

He’s finished T-26th or better in four of the last five starts. The 33-year-old hasn’t missed a cut since February.

Fleetwood ranks 12th on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green (.411). On weeks like this where going low can be difficult, a tidy short game is key.

Although he hasn’t won, a reason Fleetwood is a good major championship player is how straight he hits the ball. He’s fourth on Tour in driving accuracy percentage (74.71%).

Fleetwood is going for his second worldwide win of the year and his first career PGA Tour victory. I can easily see him getting over the hump and building the Fairway Jesus buzz heading into Pinehurst.
