Matt Fitzpatrick Career
Matt Fitzpatrick turned professional in 2014 after the U.S. Open, forfeiting his exemption to the 2014 Open Championship. His professional debut was at the 2014 Irish Open, after which he played several competitions on the European Tour and Challenge Tour on sponsor and tournament invitations. In November 2014, Fitzpatrick entered the 2014 European Tour Qualifying School, where he finished in 11th place and qualified for the 2015 European Tour.
The start of the 2015 season saw Fitzpatrick struggling, as he missed six cuts in the first eight competitions. However, he quickly turned his fortunes around, securing third place at the Lyoness Open in June and following it up with a second-place finish at the Omega European Masters in July 2015, just one shot behind Danny Willett.
This earned him a prize of €300,000. His breakthrough victory came in October 2015, when he won the British Masters at Woburn, taking home the first prize of £500,000 (€671,550). This result propelled him into the world's top 100 for the first time, with a ranking of 59. He finished his rookie season on tour with one win, nine top-10 finishes, and a 12th place in the final Order of Merit.
Fitzpatrick's success continued in 2016, as he secured a tied 7th place at the Masters Tournament and won the 2016 Nordea Masters in June.
This victory saw him reach a career-high ranking of 32nd in the Official World Golf Ranking. He also earned an automatic selection for the 2016 Ryder Cup due to his results on the 2015 and 2016 seasons of the European Tour.
In November 2016, Fitzpatrick clinched his third career win at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, edging out Tyrrell Hatton by one shot.
He successfully defended his European Masters title in a playoff over Lucas Bjerregaard in September 2018, and in December 2020, he won his second DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, beating eventual Race to Dubai champion Lee Westwood by one shot. This win also marked his first Rolex Series title.
In September 2021, Fitzpatrick played on the European team in the 2021 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. Although the U.S. team won 19–9, Fitzpatrick put up a solid performance, earning three matches, though unfortunately losing all of them.
In June 2022, Fitzpatrick achieved one of his greatest career accomplishments, winning his first major championship at the U.S. Open, held at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. This win was particularly special for Fitzpatrick, as he had won the U.S. Amateur at the same venue in 2013, becoming only the second male golfer after Jack Nicklaus to win both titles at the same venue.
Fitzpatrick continued his winning streak in April 2023, when he secured his second PGA Tour victory by winning the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links, defeating Jordan Spieth in a playoff on the third playoff hole. His winning approach shot was hit to within one foot, setting up the winning birdie.
Overall, Fitzpatrick's impressive achievements have cemented his status as one of the most talented and successful golfers of his generation.
