Tommy Fleetwood has been backed to win the US Open by coach Norman Marshall, who first taught him as a six-year-old.

England’s Fleetwood, who has never won a major, is one shot off the lead going into the final round on Sunday.

“Knowing Tommy as I know him and seeing what he has done in the past, every time he has got within a sniff of winning a big tournament, he’s gone for it 100%,” said Marshall.
