Tommy Fleetwood will be using a brand new set of clubs as he aims to win the $7 million Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship for the third time in three years. A victory on Saturday (the tournament starts Wednesday) would make the Englishman the first player to win a fully-sanctioned European Tour event three times in a row after Ernie Els at the Heineken Classic in 2004. But the 27-year-old from Southport will be without his trusted irons that he used for over six years.
