The Englishman joins fellow Ryder Cup teammates Jon Rahm, Justin Rose and defending champion Rafa Cabrera Bello at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid as he looks to build on the form that has seen him move back inside the world’s top 30.

The 31-year-old has enjoyed five top tens in his last nine outings, including fifth at the US PGA Championship and fourth at The 150th Open Championship at St Andrews.

The Southport native won his maiden professional title in 2013 at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in Scotland. Four years would pass before his next triumph (at the 2017 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship), but then the floodgates opened. Three more would come in the space of three seasons – the 2017 Open de France, a successful title defence at the 2018 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and the 2019 Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa, with the final two Rolex Series events.

The run would sky-rocket Fleetwood to 9th in the Official Golf World Rankings and earn him a place in Team Europe ahead of the 2018 Ryder Cup, where he and Francesco Molinari made history by winning all four of their matches at Le Golf National, helping Europe to a resounding victory.
