Fleetwood to lead from front in Hero Cup match-play event

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Britain and Ireland captain Tommy Fleetwood will lead from the front after deciding to join Shane Lowry in the opening fourballs match against Continental Europe’s Alex Noren and Thomas Pieters in the Hero Cup. Continental Europe captain Francesco Molinari has split up the different nationalities in his team by deciding against partnering with fellow Italian Guido Migliozzi. Frenchmen Antoine Rozner and Victor Perez are also in different pairings. There are two all-English pairings for Britain and Ireland: Tyrrell Hatton and Jordan Smith, and Callum Shinkwin and Matt Wallace.
