Tommy Fleetwood broke the course record at Carnoustie, carding 63, to join Tyrrrell Hatton at the top of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship leaderboard in Scotland.
Tommy, from England, made history on day 2 of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, breaking the Carnoustie course record, carding -9 under par 63. He joined Tyrrell, also from England, who signed for -7 under 65, he too played Carnoustie, at the top of the leaderboard, both at -11 under par for the tournament.
Tommy said he had putted well
“Any time you have a course record, especially on a golf course like this, it’s brilliant to have, I’m very proud at the moment.”
“I played well, putted well. It just unravels really, sometimes it does that. Most of the times, those are your best rounds when you don’t quite realise what you’re doing.”
“I would love to win a tournament. I’d love to win this tournament. The goal every week is to try and win whatever you’re playing in.”
“With such big events coming up, I don’t think anything will be over until it’s finally done but if I can keep making that cushion a little bit bigger, then it will feel a lot nicer.”
Tyrrell the defending Champion, said his putter suddenly came alive;
“Happy with today’s round, got lucky a couple of times but obviously you need that.”
“The putter came alive for me on the last sort of thirteen holes.”
“It’s a strange feeling to think I’ve won the tournament, because when I look back, it doesn’t feel like it was me that won.”
“It’s great to be back and good memories from last year.”
“I’ve come into this event with a bit of form. I’m happy that I’m sort of carrying it on and, you know, hopefully I can have a good one at Kingsbarns tomorrow and all to play for for Sunday. But there’s still a lot of golf still to be played.”
Nicolas Colsaerts, Belgium, in third place on his own at -10 under par, he went round St Andrews Old Course in -5 under 67 today.
