On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

Tommy Fleetwood has shut down talk of him possibly joining LIV Golf despite unconfirmed reports that he’s set to join the likes of Open champion Cameron Smith and Bubba Watson on the Saudi-backed circuit.

Sources suggest a big announcement is incoming on Tuesday as LIV CEO Greg Norman looks to bolster his ranks ahead of the next event at Trump Bedminster on July 29th.

Fleetwood’s name has been consistently linked with such speculation but Sky Sports Golf Correspondent Jamie Weir claims to have spoken to Fleetwood directly with the world number 26 categorically denying he’s joining LIV. Weir tweeted;

“I’ve spoken to Tommy Fleetwood himself today and this is 100% categorically not true” in response to an article linking Fleetwood to LIV.

And the English star, who finished tied-fourth on Sunday at The Open, also took to social media to express his gratitude for the week at St Andrews, and if you were reading between the lines, Fleetwood’s “money can’t buy” assertion should be music to the ears of golf’s status quo.

“What a week,” Fleetwood wrote. “I walked with veterans down 17 and 18. Met Royalty. Walked down 18 at St Andrews getting cheered on with my best man.

“Special does not do The Open justice. It’s experiences [like this] that money can’t buy. Thank you all so much for every ounce of support and encouragement throughout it all.”
