Tommy Fleetwood jaded ahead of the British Masters

Tommy Fleetwood admits he is beginning to feel the effects of his Ryder Cup heroics as he tries to catch Paris partner Francesco Molinari and win the Race to Dubai for a second year in succession.

Fleetwood is second in the money list behind Open champion Molinari, with whom he won all four of their matches together at Le Golf National in Europe's victory over the United States.

The duo will be reunited in the first two rounds of this week's British Masters at Walton Heath as Fleetwood seeks to close the gap of 1.4million points to the other half of the "Moliwood" pair.

"I'm starting to feel jaded a little bit," Fleetwood admitted. "I practised at home on Monday so I am still trying to tick over and work on things and get better."

Fleetwood, who will play in China and Turkey before contesting the season-ending event in Dubai, added: "I'm a long way behind but it's the opposite of last year in that I led all year last year and this year for the final few events I'm kind of chasing it now.

"I might get nowhere near and it's a stretch as a goal to think about it, but I'd love to play Dubai with a chance. I'd love to get in contention in a couple of events and maybe win one.

"There's probably people I would prefer to beat, but if it came down to me and Fran either way I'm going to be more than happy whichever way that would turn out."
