Tommy Fleetwood is not taking a Ryder Cup place for granted and vowed to continue working hard as he looks to build on a "life-changing" 2017.

Fleetwood is hoping to impress Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn at this week's EurAsia Cup after enjoying a momentous year both on and off the course.

The 26-year-old was crowned European No 1 after a thrilling battle with Justin Rose shortly after the birth of his first child, and Fleetwood then wed long-time girlfriend Claire in the Bahamas last month.

Romero wants to leave United to secure World Cup spot

  Romero wants to leave United to secure World Cup spot Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero wants to leave the Reds in January in order to secure a place in Argentina’s World Cup squad, according to The Independent. Romero has been an able deputy to the unshakable David de Gea since joining United in 2015 and has retained his place as Argentina’s first-choice keeper despite not seeing much action at Old Trafford. However, with Jorge Sampaoli now in charge of La Albiceleste ahead of the World Cup in Russia, the 30-year-old is reportedly concerned at losing his place in Sampaoli’s first-choice eleven, with Real Sociedad’s Geronimo Rulli and Agustín Marchesín, who plays for Mexican side América, breathing down his neck. Sampaoli has said that his players need to be getting regular football or they could not be guaranteed a place in the final 23-man World Cup squad, and while it is very much unlikely that Romero will miss out, he is keen to depart Old Trafford, at least on loan until the summer. An unnamed source told the paper: “Sergio has offers from the Premier League, Argentina and Spain.” “He knows he needs to play and the appropriate people in Manchester are aware too.” Romero hasn’t seen much action for United this season, only featuring in the Carabao Cup and two Champions League dead rubbers so far, and with United’s elimination by Bristol City at the quarter-final stage depriving him of at least two more games, it is hard to see where the Argentine could feature for the rest of the season. On the other hand, José Mourinho will certainly not let Romero go without a fight, with third-choice keeper Joel Pereira highly unlikely to be deemed ready to deputise for De Gea on a weekly basis. However, Romero’s loyalty may play a huge part in how this develops, with the Argentine never kicking up a fuss and fulfilling his role as a standout deputy to the Spaniard.

Despite all his success over the last 12 months, which included big wins in Abu Dhabi and France, Fleetwood insisted he still has work to do to ensure a Ryder Cup debut under Bjorn in the Autumn.

"I wish the qualification points had started six months earlier, and then I'd feel very confident about being there," he told Sky Sports News. "I guess it is expected, but it is by no means guaranteed at all.

"It's a new year and there are so many good players in Europe. The strength in depth is incredible, and if you let your guard down then you're not going to make it. I'll be very disappointed not to be there, so I've got to keep working hard."

Fleetwood is part of a strong European line-up as they defend the EurAsia Cup in Kuala Lumpur this week, and he will then head to the Middle East to defend his Abu Dhabi Championship title against a star-studded field which includes the likes of Rory McIlroy and world No 1 Dustin Johnson.

Ian Poulter has opted out of the Johnnie Walker Championship leaving Darren Clarke as favourite to make Ryder Cup team.

"Last year was a massive, life-changing year in so many ways," said Fleetwood. "On the course, it was the best year of my career and I achieved a goal that wasn't even a goal at the start of the year. Henrik Stenson and Rory McIlroy had shared the Race to Dubai for a couple of years, so to throw Tommy Fleetwood in there doesn't quite fit!

"Next week is my first individual event of 2018, but nobody cares what happened last year. I've just got to keep improving and just enjoy what's been happening. I've been having the time of my life.

"I've never been announced on the tee as a defending champion before, so that's going to be cool and something else that's a great experience and something I'll enjoy. And it's such a great field there as well."
