Tommy Fleetwood was in contention for a major championship for the first time in his career at the U.S. Open and the Englishman is confident he can do it again.

Fleetwood was in the reckoning throughout the four days at Erin Hills with some superb play, but when it mattered his game came up short.

Having held a share of the lead after round two and being just one shot off top spot heading into the final day, Fleetwood carded an even-par 72 on Sunday to finish fourth.

He ended up five shots behind eventual champion Brooks Koepka, but the 26-year-old was pleased with his performance - by far his best at a major.

"I've never contended for a major before," he said. "So when you get to Saturday and Sunday, you've got to see how you react and how you feel.

"I felt [on Saturday] I played great. Today [Sunday] my game wasn't quite there, but still got it round level par.

"I scrapped a little bit for it, and it was a bit soft but I felt fine. I felt comfortable.

"I enjoyed playing late on Saturday and Sunday, and then next time, whenever that comes, and I'll play well enough to get myself in contention.

"I know that inside myself I feel fine and I can -- whether I play well or not that's a different story, but I feel fine."

Fleetwood's previous best at a major also came at the U.S. Open when he finished in a tie for 27th in 2015, his other appearances seeing him fail to make the cut on six occasions.

Enjoyable week for Fleetwood .
Tommy Fleetwood insisted he enjoyed his first experience of contending at a major despite coming up short at the US Open. Fleetwood went into the final round at Erin Hills just one shot off the lead, but he failed to build on an early birdie at the second as bogeys at the third, sixth and eighth holes left him four shots off the pace.The Englishman battled back with a birdie at nine, but his final birdie at the 14th proved irrelevant as playing partner Brooks Koepka pulled away from the field with three straight gains on the back nine to win by four strokes on 16 under.
