‘19.8 billion won without winning.’
Tommy Fleetwood (England) set a new record on the PGA Tour. He became the second player ever to cross the $15 million mark in career earnings without winning. Fleetwood tied for third in the PGA Tour Valspa Championship (total prize money of $8.1 million), which ended on the 20th (Korean time) at the Copperhead Course (par 71, 7340 yards) at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Florida, USA, with a prize of $477,900 ( about 6 billion). His career prize money was 15,186,842 dollars (approximately 19.8 billion won). 메이저놀이터
There are 129 players on the PGA Tour who have surpassed $15 million in career earnings, but Fleetwood’s record is unique. Because he has never won a PGA Tour championship. He was named the player who exceeded $15 million in career prize money without winning, following Cameron Tringalley (USA). Tringalli earned $16,980,931 in career earnings. He transferred to LIV Golf last year and cannot play on the PGA Tour in the future.
Fleetwood entered the ‘Top 10’ 26 times in 112 PGA Tour events until the Valspar Championship. He is runner-up four times and third place three times. Even in major tournaments, he finished runner-up at the 2018 US Open and the 2019 The Open.
Fleetwood is the powerhouse of the DP World Tour (formerly known as the European Tour). He harvested as many as 6 victories. He was awarded Player of the Year in 2017 on the European stage. His DP World Tour career earnings are 10th (24.15 million 564 euros). “I still have a lot of tournaments to play in,” Fleetwood said. “My goal is not to win just once,” he said. He continued, “I will win many times,” and said, “My heyday that has yet to come will be very splendid.”
