Fleetwood opens up on Ryder Cup impact
Englishman Tommy Fleetwood has conceded he was shocked by how much winning the Ryder Cup has meant in his career.
In his first experience in the competition against the Americans, Fleetwood formed a formidable partnership with Francesco Molinari as they claimed four points from four.
Fleetwood has spoken about the win at Le Golf National and feels that success in France and the nature of the competition was something that he did not expect.
"It's difficult to sum it up," Fleetwood told Sky Sports. "It's an experience that no matter how much you put into it, no matter how much you think about it, and no matter how much the other players tell you about it, you can't be ready for.
"You can't believe what a family you all become that week, and the thing that sticks is how together everyone is and how much you play for each other.
"For me, I felt really emotional for how much you wanted it for each other, how much we played for each other and how much heart goes into it for this massive family that was Team Europe.
"The experiences - especially for us in such an individual game - are memories and feelings that you cherish."
