Make it six career top-fives in majors for Tommy Fleetwood after last week’s T-3rd finish at the Masters.

He wasn’t exactly in the mix to win finishing seven shots back, though he was at least within striking distance on the first nine on Sunday.

Fleetwood began the day eight shots back and gained ground with what tied for second lowest score of the final round, a 3-under 69 in tough, windy conditions.

Unfortunately for Fleetwood and the rest, champion Scottie Scheffler had the lowest alongside, you guessed it, Kurt Kitayama.

Fleetwood admirably carded four rounds of par or better, something only Scheffler and Cameron Smith (T-6th, 71-72-72-71) did all week.

“I had a bogey-free round today, which is amazing, and I made so few bogeys throughout the week, considering the conditions, which is such a positive, and I did so many good things,” Fleetwood was transcribed by ASAP Sports. “I think I look back on it and scorable holes probably cost me. I didn't really birdie the par-5s that much, so I'll sort of look back on that and think I could have done better there.”

Fortunately for Fleetwood, there’s one fewer par-5 in play this week.

The 33-year-old is teeing it up at the RBC Heritage for the fourth time in a row and fifth total.

Fleetwood owns three top-25s at Harbour Town, including T-10th in 2022 (71-70-64-68), where he was just two shots back, and T-15th (69-65-68-71) last year.

He ranks 24th on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green. Even a ball striker like him will need his short game intact to get up and down on Harbour Town’s microscopic greens.

The Masters was Fleetwood’s second straight top-10. He took T-7th the week prior at the Valero Texas Open. He played well earlier in the year in his adopted hometown of Dubai. He took on tough fields, winning the Dubai Invitational and placing T-14th at the Hero Dubai Desert Classic.
