Matthew Thomas Fitzpatrick (born 1 September 1994) is an English professional golfer. After winning the 2013 U.S. Amateur, his first professional victory was at the 2015 British Masters. In 2022 he won his first major championship at the U.S. Open.
Fitzpatrick turned professional after the 2014 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.
Fitzpatrick, who has climbed to No18 in the world thanks to top-10 finishes at the Phoenix Open and the Pebble Beach pro-am, admitted that the situation in the Ukraine has made him view tournaments differently.
"I’d already decided to be a little easier on myself this year and appreciate all that I have but that phone call just emphasised I don’t want to be miserable for the rest of my life worrying about winning golf tournaments," he said.
It was an enthralling Moving Day at the US Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. Will Zalatoris and Matt Fitzpatrick share the lead at -4 heading into the final round on Sunday, with defending champion Jon Rahm just a shot behind.
