Don’t fret if you’ve never heard of the bloke who has just managed to tag himself on to the coattails of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship’s “Magnificent Seven” – Tom Buchanan can’t quite believe it either.
Tommy Fleetwood said earlier this week that his fiancee is looking for the perfect beach location for their upcoming Bahamas wedding on Tuesday. We’re guessing Tommy won’t recommend the sandy spot he found during Saturday’s round at the Hero World Challenge.
Rory McIlroy, Olympic medallists Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar, Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood and Ryder Cup hopeful Paul Casey will join world No.1 Dustin Johnson in a "magnificent seven" for the 2018 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
