Welcome to the Team | Ryder Cup Hero Tommy Fleetwood Joins Team TaylorMade

January 19, 2021

There’s far more to Tommy Fleetwood than his flowing locks. The four-time European Tour winner is one of the game’s premier ball strikers and a fearless competitor who rises to the occasion in the biggest events.

As a company built around product innovation, technology and authentic golfer relationships, the TaylorMade has attracted some of the best and most magnetic players in the world. Fleetwood adds to that magnetism, strengthening one of the strongest lineups in all of professional golf.

For the last several years, it seems you couldn't have a major championship leaderboard without his name on the first page. The 30-year-old turned professional in 2010 and over the course of his career has amassed three top-5 finishes in major championships and six top 20s – including a runner up at the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock where he shot a final-round 63, matching the lowest round in U.S. Open history.

On the international stage, he is widely known for his unforgettable Ryder Cup heroics. Fleetwood delivered a dominant performance in the last Ryder Cup, going undefeated in his Paris matches and spurring the Euros to a 17 ½ - 10 ½ victory.

Fleetwood’s relationship with TaylorMade runs deep. He has been playing a set of prototype irons built by the company since 2019 and upholds strong ties to Adrian Rietveld – who was TaylorMade’s lead technician on the European Tour before making the move stateside in 2019. He also played a variety of TaylorMade metalwoods after becoming an equipment free agent in 2016.

"Tommy Fleetwood is a premier golfer, but he’s an even better person. Statements like that get thrown around a lot, but if you ever have the chance to spend time with him, you’ll immediately know it’s true. There’s a warmth, sincerity and wit about Tommy that stands out," says TaylorMade Chief Executive Officer David Abeles. "He’s the ideal fit for Team TaylorMade as we embark on a journey to become the most people-centric golf brand in the world. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the team."

This could be the start of something special. I have a feeling there are some exciting times ahead, I couldn’t be happier to join Team TaylorMade.
