Tommy Fleetwood struggles with greens in third round at Masters
Tommy Fleetwood might be eight shots behind, but he is trying not to get sucked into looking at that too closely. You never know what will happen at a major, and Fleetwood, having finished runner-up at the U.S. Open (2018) and Open Championship (2019), is qualified to make that statement.
Augusta’s greens played tough on Saturday and Fleetwood, for one, struggled to get the pace.
“I think they had a bit more speed in them,” he said. “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.”
Fleetwood had three of them plus two bogeys in Saturday’s round of 71. He will try to stay present on Sunday as he continues the chase for that major title.
