Fleetwood - No need to get carried away
England's Tommy Fleetwood says he will not be getting carried away despite claiming a share of the lead at The Players Championship.
The 28-year-old hit a seven-under-par 65 on Thursday at TPC Sawgrass to move on to seven-under alongside American Keegan Bradley.
Fleetwood hit six birdies in his last nine holes to surge to the top of the leaderboard and came home in 30, just one off the tournament record.
Bradley hit six birdies, an eagle and a bogey in Florida and the duo are one ahead of Byeong-hun An and Brian Harman, while Rory McIlroy is a shot further back.
Despite his start, Fleetwood insists he has a long way to go before he can dream of his first win on the PGA Tour.
He told Sky Sports: "There are pros and cons, and it's the expectations that are a tricky thing really because it can always lead to different sides. But I love it out here, and I love playing out here. Since I've played out here more regularly, it's improved my game because I feel like there's different tests and it tests different sides of your game.
"It's clearly the next step for me to win over here but winning is not easy and I've just got to keep plugging away, keep doing the right things and focus on myself. Hopefully that will come, but there's no point in sort of not thinking about it or letting people do the talking.
"Clearly that's sort of what the next thing that's going to happen, and everybody's career goes in those stages, and hopefully mine will be the same."
