Tommy Fleetwood finishes as highest Englishman at Masters

Tommy Fleetwood finished 6 under par at Augusta as the highest placed Englishman at The Masters, but will be left wondering what might have been after the Sandgrounder failed to build on a promising performance in the first two rounds.

The 29-year-old ended joint 19th in the standings.

Fleetwood was as high as T6 midway through the second round and in genuine contention to take home the famous green jacket, but struggled on the greens in the third round.

Fleetwood said on Saturday: “I think they had a bit more speed in them, and you know, apart from a silly little three-putt on one hole, I’ve made very few mistakes this week, so I sort of move on from that. I was pretty solid. Just birdies weren’t as easy to come by for me today.”

World number one Dustin Johnson eventually won his first Masters title by five strokes with a record-breaking low score of 20 under par.
