Abu Dhabi win caps career turnaround for Fleetwood

Abu Dhabi win caps career turnaround for Fleetwood

Tommy Fleetwood looked at the leaderboard and saw three of the biggest names in golf among the players hunting him down in the final holes of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on Sunday.

Overnight leader Henrik Stenson of Sweden completed a battling round of one-under par 71 to slip to tied sixth at nine-under par, with three young stars - England's Tommy Fleetwood (67), Ireland's Paul Dunne (66) and Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat (68) - leapfrogging him to tied third place at 10-under par.

On a day of hard winds at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, Fleetwood posted an outward 36 before making his move on the back nine, chipping in for an eagle at the 10th and hitting three other birdies.

Three-time victor Martin Kaymer also eagled the 18th to finish in a tie for fourth with Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Austria's Bernd Wiesberger on 15 under. The Austrian is little short of a machine on the regular European Tour; this result is his seventh finish of T7 or better on the bounce and his second top six performance at the Abu Dhabi GC.

"I thought maybe the second win would come sooner to be honest", he told the European tour website.

Conte's classy message to Ryan Mason after serious head injury at Chelsea
Asked if he would like Costa to sign a new contract, Conte said: "Now is better to be focused on the present, not the future". It is only because I like to make the choice game by game, but also to consider the opponent.

"You know (if) you keep knocking on the door, it would come", said Fleetwood, who had 10 top-20 finishes in 12 events stretching back to September. It's been an awkward curve and massive comeback. You know, a few things I need to work on.

Leading by a shot as he teed off on No. 18, Fleetwood pulled his drive into the spectators but got relief and a good lie off his drop. I didn't really want to stop.

"It was a pretty good week", said Johnson. "Took me a few drops trying to get the flawless spot, but I just had a go at it".

Playing his first event in the Middle East, Johnson started the final round in the last group and on the back of a 64 on Saturday.

Kaymer led on his own for two holes before dropping three shots in a five-hole stretch around the turn. No longer. Not after the 26-year-old from Southport fended off world No 3 Dustin Johnson here with a display of panache and nerve to win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
