Tommy Fleetwood has been managed by Clare Craig since 2015. Before taking on the golf pro as a client, she was vice president of sports management company Hambric Sports. And the professional relationship turned romantic for the power couple. But what do we know about Clare and Tommy’s relationship and their age difference?
What is their age difference?
Tommy is 28 years old, and has previously said his wife is “20 years older than me”.
Clare has said she doesn’t like the idea of being called a ‘WAG’, given she’s as much of a professional as Tommy.
Speaking out about their professional relationship last year, Tommy said: “It works very well. I do as I’m told when needed to.

“When we started, we obviously never knew how it was going to go and I think we were always open to the idea if it didn’t work then we’d try something else, but luckily for us, we get on so well,” he added.
Tommy continued: “I guess it’s our relationship in a way, but we’ve not had any trouble yet.”He went on to note how his backroom is formed of people he considers friends first and colleagues second, saying: “It’s just the way I am.”
The couple married in 2017 after he finished competing in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

At the time, he said: “Me and Clare said that if we got into the tournament, it would be a great place to get married. So I’m actually getting married on Tuesday here.
“So missing the tournament wasn’t really an option.”
Tommy’s longtime caddie and pal Ian Finnis, his best friend growing up, was the best man at their small ceremony.
The guest list boasted a modest 40 people.

Tommy and Clare are proud parents to son Franklin, whom they welcomed in September 2017, just months before their wedding.
The golfer withdrew from the British Masters in order to be at home with his wife after Franklin’s birth.
She also has two sons from her previous marriage.
Tommy gushed about Franklin’s birth on Twitter as he revealed the good news to his 82,000 followers.
“The most beautiful and proud moment of my life!” he wrote. “Franklin Fleetwood born at 12.33 on 28/9/17 at 7pounds 6ounces.”(sic)
