Just saw this on BBC Sport.... no doubt he is a good source of publicity... (I have a screenshot with the fan shirt too but don't think I can send it in here?):
Toffee Tommy leaves his mark
Fleetwood, Thomas, Olesen (12:53 BST)

Alex Bysouth BBC Sport at Royal Portrush

No prizes for guessing who this fan will be following today...

No, Tommy Fleetwood won’t be strutting his stuff at Goodison Park next season but the Toffees supporter did stop to sign autographs, and a couple of Everton shirts, during Monday’s practice round.

I backed Tommy at the enhanced odds of 30/1. I don't have Sky and some domestic unpleasantness after Saturday misbehaviour
sees me grounded.. Is there any way to catch this on line?

You can stream it on Vipbox. Very decent feed

Failing that, 5 live are covering it. You may not see the action but at least you'll be kept up to date.

Good Luck with your bet

Obviously the Open has concluded now, but 'our' Tommy can again be proud in coming second again in a Major. Shane Lowry who played brilliantly in front of his home crowd (well almost) had an almost unassailable lead, and with the conditions on the final day, it was Shane who managed them better than anyone else.

Tommy's not that far away I believe in picking up a Major himself, as he has fared better than most, and consistently too in the recent events. Rock on Tommy and thanks for keeping Everton in the limelight.

It started to look good but then faded. He does seem like one of the good guys, and he certainly helps keep the club in the public eye. Let's hope he wins one soon

Was out of the loop for most of the weekend, so only knew Tommy was well placed on Friday.

As Derek says, he's not that far off landing a Major. Delighted for Lowry and the Irish but...what on earth happened to Rory McIlroy? Too psyched up for his home Open, I guess. That will have hurt him big time.

Surprisingly despite all the majors he has played in Mcllroy admitted he was very nervous when he teed off on Thursday morning. But he proved on Friday what aspecial talent he is by producing the round of the day a 65 in the worst of the weather, but still missed the cut by 1 shot. No doubt Shane Lowery was a worthy winner and his final round was brilliant.

Sadly as hard as he tried Tommy just couldnt hole the putts to put any pressure on Shane, but he will have many more chances to win a major.

It must have been horrible for Rory, Brian.

All the build, all the anticipation...and then on the very first hole he quadruple bogeys!!!!

He was actually retrieving things a tad, but then closed the 18th with a triple bogey!!!

As you say, he restored some pride on the second day, but he torpedoed his own Open in the first 15 minutes on day one.

Quadruple bogey? I think this Boris the Bastard, is going to be much worse than that..It's Worrying and it's even more Sickening.

Rorys first hole disaster was just like the final day at Augusta in the Masters a few years back, he had a lead but lost it in the first few holes. His first drive on that Sunday went straight left as did the one on Thursday at Portrush.

As you say he had retrieved a lot of the damage till he got to 17 and 18 and handed all them shots straight back again. I know Rory changed his caddy JP a while back and appointed his great friend Harry Diamond to carry the bag, and to be fair they have had a decent season. But just wonder if maybe an older and wiser caddy may have helped calmed his nerves better on the Thursday.
