Throughout his career, Tommy Fleetwood has demonstrated many times how big his ambitions for the future are. As long as Fleetwood had a dream in his heart, he never gave up on it. In a press conference before the start of another Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, Tommy spoke about his goals and ambitions.

There is a possibility that Hulton Park will host the Ryder Cup in 2031 or 2035. There are a number of people involved in the project, including Fleetwood. He wishes for this place to be successful and to be able to host the Ryder Cup in the future.

"I've had the opportunity to be a bit closer to a project that's going on at Hulton Park in greater Manchester in the northwest, which is always going to be something that's very close to my heart, and the possibility of having a Ryder Cup venue there was clearly something I was very interested in and what that can bring to the area," said Fleetwood, as quoted by!

As Fleetwood put it, it would mean the fulfillment of his dream. For every European golfer, the dream is to play in the Ryder Cup on home soil, on their home continent, in Europe. Besides having the opportunity to play in Europe, Fleetwood could also get a chance to play in his neighborhood!

That would certainly be more of a motive for him. It is likely that he would have enormous support, as well as a greater sense of self-confidence.
"It would be a dream. I've played three Ryder Cups now and hopefully I'm going to play a lot more.

And honestly, there's nothing quite like playing a Ryder Cup at home in Europe. It's very, very cool. I've never had the experience to play one in England, let alone the opportunity to play one from where I'm from in the northwest.

Being involved in a project like that is very cool for me and what it can - the opportunities that it will bring not just for golf but anyone. Jobs, housing around the area, I think it's much, much needed, and along with that, growing the game and introducing more people to the game that are from my area will be great. We'll see how it goes."
