Despite all his success over the last 12 months, which included big wins in Abu Dhabi and France, Fleetwood insisted he still has work to do to ensure a Ryder Cup debut under Bjorn in the Autumn.

"I wish the qualification points had started six months earlier, and then I'd feel very confident about being there," he told Sky Sports News. "I guess it is expected, but it is by no means guaranteed at all.

"It's a new year and there are so many good players in Europe. The strength in depth is incredible, and if you let your guard down then you're not going to make it. I'll be very disappointed not to be there, so I've got to keep working hard."

Fleetwood is part of a strong European line-up as they defend the EurAsia Cup in Kuala Lumpur this week, and he will then head to the Middle East to defend his Abu Dhabi Championship title against a star-studded field which includes the likes of Rory McIlroy and world No 1 Dustin Johnson.
