Tommy Fleetwood will continue his love of links golf when he returns to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on September 26 – 29, 2019.
Fleetwood, who has finished runner-up twice in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and was second in the Open Championship at Royal Portrush in July, will once again play in the event which takes place over three of the greatest links courses in the world – the Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.
He will be joined by four-time Major winner Ernie Els, former U.S. Open Champion Graeme McDowell, double Alfred Dunhill Links Champion Tyrrell Hatton and former World Number One Lee Westwood, the 2003 winner.
Ross Fisher, who finished second in 2016 and 2017, when he shot a stunning final round of 61 to set the current Old Course record, will also tee it up alongside fellow Englishmen Eddie Pepperell, Matt Wallace and Luke Donald, another former World Number One.
Fleetwood said: “I’ve always loved the Old Course, and St Andrews, ever since I played the Links Trophy as an amateur.
“There are places in the town where there are pictures of guys sitting on the Swilken Bridge with the Dunhill trophy. I’ve come so close, I would love to have my picture up there as well.”
European Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington - a three-time Major Champion and two-time Alfred Dunhill Links Championship winner - and the defending champion, Denmark’s Lucas Bjerregaard, are already confirmed for this year’s event.
This is the 35th year that Alfred Dunhill has supported golf at St Andrews, through the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and previously the Alfred Dunhill Cup. With the creation of the Alfred Dunhill Links Foundation in 2011, millions have been raised for charity.
The Championship incorporates two separate competitions - an individual professional tournament for the world's leading golfers and the team championship, in which the pros are paired with amateur players, creating a unique atmosphere and camaraderie.
Among the amateur players who have already confirmed they will play are sporting greats like Ruud Gullit, Kevin Pietersen, Sir Steve Redgrave, Jamie Redknapp and Shane Warne, plus TV personality Piers Morgan and singer-songwriter Ronan Keating.
Admission is free for all spectators over the first three days with final day tickets on Sunday, September 29 available to purchase at the entrance gates for £20 (concessions £15), or in advance here
