Tommy Fleetwood headed into last year's Open Championship as the home town hero and one of the favorites, yet opened with a 76. His response was a Friday 69 to reach his first ever Open weekend. "One of the best rounds I've ever played," he said, before adding that his confidence is high this week. "The thing about finishing second in the U.S. Open is that it's proof. I've got the game to compete, and eventually win, the majors. That's what it's all about."
