The latest was a closing 73 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron on Sunday as he chased down victor Justin Thomas, and follows on from the Hollywood-native settling for a tie for second at the Open in Carnosutie after enjoying a late share of the lead.
He had turned at two under, after birdying the par-4 1st and par-5 8th holes, but then got unsettled by a frustrating delay at the turn and promptly gave those shots back with bogeys on 11 and 15 that has his round teetering on the brink.
"I've had a good run of putting myself in contention in a lot of events and a lot of the big events, and it just so far hasn't happened", Fleetwood said.
"The record of mine I don't even have a top-10, I think 12 is the best I've ever finished, which is frustrating because I feel like where I am and where I should be is not results that I have had". He is playing the PGA Championship for the first time since 2015.

Given all that misfortune, it wouldn't have been surprising if PGA Championship chairman Mike DeCola had heart palpitations when dark clouds swept in Tuesday morning.
"Without a doubt, the next step in my career is to win in America and win a major", he said. "You need to have everything come together perfectly".
The forecast calls for dry weather, though temps are expected in the 90s again.
Woods is in the field.
Same goes for Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth or Phil Mickelson on the PGA Championship live player and on the PGA Championship mobile app. Now, Woods must "get the mindset back prior to all the injuries and all the surgeries". And while Gramps has been there for many of his career-defining moments, there are many distant relatives that will get to see him compete for the first time this week.
Perhaps all those bits of adversity and disappointment will have been worth the wait by Sunday.
