Fleetwood outlines 2019 goals
Tommy Fleetwood wants to continue his rise in 2019 after establishing himself among the best players in the world in recent years.
The Englishman is ranked number 14 in the world ahead of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, which gets underway in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday, and he's looking forward to year ahead.
The 28-year-old started 2019 by finishing in a tie for 42nd at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and, after just one title last year, he is focused on general progress rather than silverware.
Fleetwood was a stand-out performer for Europe in the Ryder Cup and knows he's now considered a big threat in the top tournaments.
"2017 was a big rise for me," Fleetwood told the European Tour website. "2018 was still rising but kind of consolidating my position in a state of the World Rankings.
"This year, there's still things I need to do in my game. If I just focus on my game, and focus on areas of my game I want to improve, that will make me the golfer that I kind of envision in a few years' time, then I'll stick to that and hopefully that will press me in the right direction."
He added: "I'm really not looking at results. Every week, you clearly want to win; everybody does, but without sort of picking out too much and putting pressure on and just trying to be a golfer, hopefully things will take care of themselves."
