Just call Tommy Fleetwood the $15-million winless man.
For the second straight week, Fleetwood teed off in one of the final groups with a chance to secure his first PGA Tour title, but once again it wasn’t to be. Don’t feel too badly for Fleetwood, who finished T-3 with Jordan Spieth at the Valspar Championship on Sunday and cashed a check for $477,900.
That moved his all-time PGA Tour earnings across the $15-million mark and nary a win in 112 career starts – $15,186,842, to be exact, for Fleetwood’s accountant and those scoring at home.
Fleetwood, of course, has won six times on the DP World Tour and ranks 10th all time on its Order of Merit with another €24,153,564.80. Fleetwood is gaining ground on Cameron Tringale, who jumped to LIV Golf last season but remains the all-time leader among the winless on the PGA Tour with winnings of $16,981,931.
Fleetwood carded a final-round 1-under-70, just his second score in the 70s in eight career rounds at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course in Palm Harbor, Florida, for his second top-10 finish on Tour this season (T-4 at the CJ Cup in South Carolina) and fourth finish of T-4 or higher in his last nine Tour starts. He snapped a streak of 46 Tour starts without a top-three finish, dating to a third at the 2020 Honda Classic.
Fleetwood shared the lead with Spieth and Adam Schenk at 9 under until he made bogey at the par-5 14th hole and couldn’t manage another birdie.
“I love the standard of golf over here,” Fleetwood said of playing the PGA Tour. “I’ve had my chances before and it’s not happened for me, but I think I’ve got a lot of events left in me and I don’t plan on winning once I would like to win multiple, multiple times. When my day comes that will be great.”
Here’s a list of the other players who have won more than $10 million without winning on the PGA Tour.
