Swing Analysis: Tommy Fleetwood

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

I didn’t realize until I looked at the stats, but Fleetwood may be the best ball striker currently on the planet. The winner of this year’s Race to Dubai drives it an average of just under 300 yards and hits 70 % of his fairways, which obviously puts him into position to hit a lot of greens, which he does, his 77% GIR 3 full points better than anyone on the European Tour. His backswing could be a model for anyone, and with his…

Cool looking swing. Incredible ability to keep his shoulders out and steep through impact. I notice that when he approaches impact, his right shoulder is quite a bit farther out toward the ball compared to that bent right elbow. He’s able to do this because of his ability to keep his whole upper torso really bent over at the waist. I’m finally trying to do this kind of thing now that my lower back is in better shape than it has been. I may have to modify what I am doing to approximate the same kind of thing without hurting myself.

Oh to be 26 again!

Really pleased you have done an analysis of Tommy’s swing Wayne. I am from the UK and have followed his career since he was an amateur playing in events with a talented youngster from my own club. He is now playing on the Euro Pro Tour which is a 3rd Tier tour and Tommy won the Race to Dubai so it just shows you.

I have always loved his swing so it was good to hear your thoughts, I always assumed he was hitting a punch shot a lot of the time with his cut off follow through (which I really like as well) but you explain why it is in effect a full follow through. I do notice he grips down his clubs quite a bit which maybe makes him feel like he has even more control. Anyway, thanks for a fab anaysis as always.

I am going down the Chesson Hadley / Josh Eure route and I can’t watch those video’s enough! They are definitely helping my swing / ball striking and I would recommend them to all.

Am I mistaken or is there a Johnny Miller look to his down swing positions?
