Tommy Fleetwood seeing the bright side of the golf season being halted

Tommy Fleetwood says he's making the most of golf's shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and enjoying some rare midseason downtime. 

The 2018 Ryder Cup hero and Race to Dubai runner up is currently in social isolation with his family, with the season currently suspended and the first two majors of the year both postponed.

"At the moment it's out of any players group's hands or any sporting body, it's run by the government and the World Health Organisation so that's simple enough, but I guess when things start getting better, hopefully sooner rather than later, each individual sport will maybe get the chance to make their own decisions, but all you can do is speculate at the moment," the world number ten told BBC's Five Live.

"It's a time that more than likely we will never get again because even if I took a month off there would always be events going on, so don't try and take me out of this calm place where I'm very happy!"

The Englishman managed to get home after the Players' Championship, just before US President Donald Trump announced travel restrictions with Europe.

"I was missing the cut anyway, I'd shot a million.  It was a relief to know we could go straight home because at that point they still had events on so you were in a dilemma about staying out in America and then being on my own without my family or do I try and get home.

"When the news came it was good in a way that my mind was made up and I could get home."
