Tommy Fleetwood is playing again after a long break and is preparing for the expected structural changes to the game brought about by the Saudi-funded LIV Golf tour.
Fleetwood will play at the Spanish Open for the first time this week, his third tournament since the death of his mother.
The 30-year-old Englishman is one of two top 30 players in the field, along with local favorite Jon Rahm, who is sixth.
For Fleetwood, a quick return to top form and good results again is crucial as the golf world goes through turmoil following the creation of LIV Golf,
Fleetwood told The Associated Press before Wednesday's practice session at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid. "We'll have to wait and see,
but whatever comes, I always think when you play well, opportunities will come and that's exactly what I want to do."
Fleetwood said he's trying not to worry about the specifics of what happens with the sport, just improving his game.
"I don't want to focus too much on it," Fleetwood, 31, said. “I just want to make sure I'm the best player I can be and should take care of that.
