Tommy Fleetwood is one of the biggest stars in world golf – and the Englishman also has one of the game’s most renowned coaches by his side.

So who is Tommy Fleetwood’s coach?

Tommy Fleetwood’s coach is the legendary swing instructor Butch Harmon. Fleetwood has been working closely in 2023 with Harmon, who is one of the most respected swing coaches in the game.

The duo were spotted working together on the Augusta National practice range at The Masters in 2023, and Harmon has been giving Fleetwood guidance ever since as he continues to establish himself as one of the best players on the PGA Tour.

Harmon is listed as Fleetwood’s coach on his official website. His short game coach is Graham Walker, while he works on his putting stroke with the renowned putting guru Phil Kenyon.

Fleetwood has also enlisted the help of Dr Bob Rotella to work on his psychological side of the game.

It is no doubt that Fleetwood has assembled one of the best backroom teams in the game as he bids to win majors, PGA Tour titles and Ryder Cups for Team Europe.

Harmon, meanwhile, has been a household name in the world of professional golf for decades.

The American has been an instructor to the biggest names over the years, perhaps most notably working with Tiger Woods from 1993 to 2004 during his incredible rise to prominence.

Harmon was in Phil Mickelson’s corner from 2007 to 2015 and has worked with a host of major champions including Greg Norman, Ernie Els and Fred Couples.

More recently before linking up with Fleetwood, Harmon has coached former PGA champion Jimmy Walker, multiple major winner Dustin Johnson and the ever-popular Rickie Fowler.

Harmon is a semi-retired coach these days, but as well as helping Fleetwood, has been credited for the resurgence of Fowler, who made his way into the US Ryder Cup team in 2023.

He even assisted Rory McIlroy in the build up to the 2024 Masters, and the Northern Irishman detailed his trip to one of the world’s most well-regarded coaches.

“I always joke that if you spend four hours with Butch, and you go away with two swing tips and 30 stories,” he said.

Meanwhile, Fleetwood has built a strong relationship with Walker, his short game coach. Based at the Oaks in Yorkshire since 2004, he’s lifted his compatriot to the top.

“Somebody once said that coaching is having other people’s fun and I’ve had a lot of fun coaching him over the last few years,” Walker told the PGA. “It’s very pleasing that somebody like him can take on the skills we’ve been working on and taking ownership of it.”
