Seven-time DP World Tour winner Tommy Fleetwood has been announced as DP World’s latest Global Ambassador.

Fleetwood is one of the stars of the golfing world and has an impressive roll of honour to back it up.

The 33-year-old, who moved to Dubai in 2022, is currently the 13th ranked best player in the world and has won the Abu Dhabi Championship, Dubai Invitational and Race to Dubai over his glittering career.

He is also a two-time Ryder Cup winner and finished in a share of third at the Masters Tournament earlier this year, which came just a few weeks before jumping on the bag for his stepson, Oscar Craig, at the UAE Challenge.

But perhaps his greatest achievement is his eagerness to give back to the game.


Ahead of the 2022 DP World Tour Championship, Fleetwood and DP World officially opened The DP World Golf Performance Centre and the region’s first-ever Tommy Fleetwood Academy at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

It’s the second such Academy, with the Englishman opening his first in Southport in 2018 at Formby Hall where he learnt the game under the instruction of his first coach, Norman Marshal.

The success of the Southport academy, coupled with Fleetwood’s passion to get as many people into the game as possible, played a crucial part in the launch of the second location at the home of the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.

The appointment of Fleetwood as a Global Ambassador perfectly aligns with DP World’s commitment to growing grassroots golf in the region and globally, encouraging everyone to learn to play the game of golf.


“It's an honour to grow my relationship with DP World as their Global Ambassador,” said Fleetwood, who joins cricketing superstar Sachin Tendulkar as a Global Ambassador of the global logistics company. 

“Over the past two years, the work we have done together has made significant strides in the game we all love, and I'm excited for what lies ahead. DP World is a forward-thinking, innovative company that continues to invest in golf's development, and anyone who knows me knows how close growing the game is to my heart.”

Daniel Van Otterdijk, DP World’s Group Chief Communications Officer, added: “We are thrilled that Tommy is now part of the DP World family as our new Global Ambassador. Appointing him was a natural next step, strengthening our already very strong partnership. The calibre of talent that Tommy represents aligns perfectly with our goal to further build our brand in the realm of sport, as he appeals to such a huge audience. We look forward to watching the magic he brings to the game week after week.”
