In-form Tommy Fleetwood is not daunted by his busy summer schedule as he heads from Shinnecock Hills to Golf Club Gut Laerchenhof for this week's BMW International Open.

World Number Ten Fleetwood arrives in Germany fresh from recording his best result in a Major Championship at the US Open, where a record-equalling 63 on Sunday saw him finish a single shot behind champion Brooks Koepka in second.

And the tournaments will continue to come thick and fast throughout the summer, with Rolex Series events and Majors on the horizon.

But Fleetwood insists he is not concerned by the prospect of playing a number of tournaments in a row, and highlighted the importance of looking after himself throughout the busy stretch.

He said: "This year, in particular, we knew at the start of the year it's going to be a busy year.

"And I know now that I've really got very little time off up until past September, nearly October now.

Rest is important - and eating well. I generally eat very well and I look after myself, which is going to be massive in a really busy year - Tommy Fleetwood

"At least I know - it's not like it's going to take me by surprise and I'm going to get to the end of it and think 'I'm knackered and I wasn't expecting to play all those events'.

"Rest is important - and eating well. I generally eat very well and I look after myself, which is going to be massive in a really busy year. 

"But that's fine, as long as you know it's coming and you look after yourself. 

"If you want to go home and play golf anyway, it's just that when I come out here, it's just a little bit more pressure than having a few shots at home.

"But it's just about looking after yourself mentally and physically and hopefully at the end of the year, I won't be too knackered but I'll definitely be ready for a holiday!"

Fleetwood's sensational final round at Shinnecock Hills last week took on extra significance as it fell on his first Father's Day as a dad.

And this week will be a family affair for last year's Race to Dubai champion, who will have his own father on the bag.

Speaking about the US Open, Fleetwood added: "Just to have a week like that - the Sunday was an amazing day, just because it was my first-ever Father's Day and I got so, so, close to making my little piece of history.

"But all in all, at the end of 72 holes, I was up there again in a Major and there were a lot of positives to take from it.

"I have my dad caddying this week. My wife and baby, they come out at the weekend or a little bit later."
