In another blow to tournament host Lee Westwood, Tommy Fleetwood will miss this week's British Masters at Close House in Newcastle, because his partner and manager Clare, may give birth to their child.
26-year-old Fleetwood has decided to stay with his partner Clare, who is also his manager.
"I wanted to give myself every chance of playing this week, but being there at the birth of your child is a special moment in anyone's life and I would not want to miss it," said Fleetwood.
"I look forward to returning to playing soon and hopefully I can have a strong end to the season and compete for the Race to Dubai title."
Fleetwood has won twice this season, and is currently leading the Race to Dubai by nearly one million points from Sergio Garcia, who will be teeing it up at Close House on Thursday.
