In what has been a mixed weekend at the Shinnecock Hills golf course, it was Fleetwood who finished with a flurry.
The Englishman began the day six shots behind clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson heading into the final round.
But he raised his game to another level on the final day to move two-over for the tournament and keep himself in contention of winning the US Open.
The 27-year-old has never won a PGA Tour event since turning pro in 2010.
However, he has slowly been making a name for himself on the tour and has enjoyed three top 10 finishes so far in 2018.
While there is no data on Fleetwood’s overall worth, Yahoo Sports total his career earnings at $14,198,474.
If he is to win the US Open – the first major of his career – he could be set to pocket $2,160,000.
The runner-up will receive $1,296,000.
