Tommy Fleetwood insists he will relish the ‘grind’ of a traditional US Open as he looks to win a first major title at Shinnecock Hills.

Normal service will be resumed at Shinnecock Hills, which hosted the second US Open in 1896 and most recently in 2004, when winner Retief Goosen and runner-up Phil Mickelson were the only two players to finish under par.
