Tommy Fleetwood fires his lowest opening round on European Tour since 2016 using a £90 putter from eBay; backs it up in round two

Published

on

Tommy Fleetwood’s opening round of five-under-par on Thursday at the Omega European Masters was the best first-round score he has posted on the European Tour since 2016, and the Englishman achieved the feat using a £90 Odyssey DFX 2-Ball Blade which his caddie bought on eBay.

Fleetwood’s caddie, Ian Finnis, purchased the pre-owned putter off eBay back in January as a birthday gift for the 28-year-old who used a similar putter to the Odyssey blade growing up. Seven months later and the Englishman put the flat-stick to great use during round one of the European Tour event, needing just 21 putts during the opening day’s action.

Speaking after firing the round of five-under-par, Fleetwood had this to say on the why he decided to put the blade into play

“The last three or four weeks, I putted poor. Today, it worked really well. Nothing like holing a few putts. It easies everything off when you’re going into the greens.”

Fleetwood was back at it during Friday morning’s round in Switzerland, matching his opening 65 on day two to put him in contention for the weekend.

    Headline is a little confusing. I thought he fired the lowest since 2016 for the entire tour, not his personal best. I was expecting a 60 or something, then it said he fired a 5 under par round and was like, when did the Euro Tour get so bad lol
