Tommy Fleetwood takes Abu Dhabi title

Tommy Fleetwood admitted it was good to see his persistence pay off after winning on Sunday at the Abu Dhabi Championship.

Rather than unnerve the Englishman, it spurred him on.

Fleetwood looked so surprised to win in Abu Dhabi but he played beautifully to end with a 67, finish on 17 under par and hold off the charge of US Open champion Dustin Johnson and Spain's Pablo Larrazabal.

They said he broke a hole in the auto window with his baton, but was not able to unlock the door. The officer was released from the hospital after getting treatment for smoke inhalation.

The 26-year-old used a VR Pro Combo 4 iron and VR Pro blades from 5-9 iron, all with Project X rifle shafts.

"It's a very big deal to prove yourself against some of the world's best". It just shows a lot can happen in golf. "The chip-in on ten, birdie on 11, changed everything all of a sudden from nowhere and I was leading". He smashed a 3-wood downwind toward the green, shouting at the ball as it flew through the air, and it settled more than 300 yards later in the heart of the putting surface. You never know how you're going to play then. "You don't want to be hanging around".

Fleetwood followed an eagle-three at the 10th with a birdie at the next hole to go alongside playing partner Aphibarnrat, who cancelled out a bogey after finding water at the 12th with a gain at the next. I didn't really think it would be this week.

This win will lift him from a ranking of No. 102 to near the top 50. But where I'm at this year, obviously going into next week and with the game, I saw some good things out of the golf game this week.

"I thought maybe my second win would come sooner to be honest", said Fleetwood, who won the Johnnie Walker Championship in 2013.

His putt for eagle slid three feet by, but he made no mistake coming back.

After 13 holes of his last round, Fox had hit three birdies and a bogey, before dropping two shots with respective bogeys on the 14th and the 16th. Fleetwood birdied two of his final three (including the last) for the win. "I just didn't roll any putts in".
