Story

England's Tommy Fleetwood returns to the Nedbank Golf Challenge for the second time, and as one of the European Tour's most consistent players over the past two years.

Fleetwood had a distinguished amateur career in which he won both the Scottish and English Amateur championships.

After turning professional in 2010, the young star topped the Challenge Tour rankings in 2011 following a victory in the Kazakhstan Open that year. He was the youngest player in history at the age of 20 years and 290 days to finish top of the Challenge Tour rankings.

Fleetwood's rookie season on the European Tour in 2012 was largely uneventful, but he again showed his ability to rise to the occasion when he recorded a top 10 finish in the South African Open, his final tournament of the season, to secure his card for 2013.

In 2013 he made the breakthrough many had expected him to make when he beat Stephen Gallacher and Ricardo Gonzalez in a playoff for the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.

"It feels absolutely amazing. It's a lifetime goal that's been taken care of. To call yourself a European Tour winner is just awesome," he said after his triumph.

"You look at all the winners on Tour and, I'll admit, I'm so jealous when somebody wins, but finally it's my turn."

That remains his only victory as a professional, although he has come close to adding to this in 2014 and 2015.

He teed off 2014 with a finish of tied third in the Volvo Golf Champions in South Africa. That year he also finished second in the Volvo China Open, and had back-to-back second places in the ISPS Handa Wales Open and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He ended a highly consistent season with a finish of tied 12th in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.

This year, amongst a host of top 10s, Fleetwood's best finish was third in the Shenzhen International.

Fleetwood is driven only by the thought of winning, and admits that even at his young age the money that comes with this is not that important to him.

"I'm probably the most unmaterialistic person in the world. Winning is enough for me. Winning is all I've ever wanted to do. T he money that goes with it is obviously fantastic, but it doesn't really mean that much to me. It's all about winning. Winning is what we play for really. Everybody starts off with the same chance, and you see people winning, how happy they are, and I just had to wait a little longer than I wanted to before I won. But the feeling of winning is just what I want really."
