Non-member Matthew Fitzpatrick checks into his first PLAYERS at No. 41 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
The Englishman is one of 28 first-timers in the elite 144-man field but he's proven to be a big-game talent. The 21-year-old won his maiden Euro Tour title at the 2015 British Masters (Oct.) and posted a T4 at the DP World Tour Championship en route to 12th in the final Race to Dubai standings. Since missing the cut at the Maybank Championship Malaysia in mid-February, he's concentrated his subsequent starts entirely in the U.S. -- beginning and ending the six-event run with missed cuts at The Honda Classic and most recently at the Heritage. In-between, Fitzpatrick posted his first top 10 in a major with T7 at the Masters, closing in 67 with four birdies over his final five holes. May 11 - 8:05 PM

Matthew Fitzpatrick twirled a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the Masters to conclude his second appearance on even-par 288, up 15 places on the live leaderboard to T8, and good for the low round of the day in the clubhouse with Paul Casey. UPDATE: With play completed, Fitzpatrick finished in a three-way T7 and his 67 was low 18 tied with Paul Casey and champion Danny Willett.

The 2013 U.S. Amateur champ missed the cut on debut in 2014 as an amateur. He returned this year as the 43rd-ranked player in the world and will be back in 2017 with a top-12 finish (and ties) this week. The 21-year-old, 12th in the final Race to Dubai standings in 2015, began Sunday's play on 5-over (T23) after opening in 71-76-74. He erased a lone bogey at the par-4 11th with six birdies, including four over his final five holes, highlighted by a walk-off 3 at the last from 11 feet. The Englishman totaled 11 birdies and 11 bogeys on the week en route to a possible first top-10 finish in a major in his fourth appearance. Entering the week, he had not posted a top 10 on any tour in calendar year 2016 on eight events.

Matt Fitzpatrick will tee it up with Darren Clarke and Billy Horschel in the first two rounds of the 80th Masters at Augusta National.

The Englishman, who heads out in Group 18 at 11.38 local time on Thursday, is playing the event for the second time having made it to Augusta as the U.S. Amateur champion in 2014. He would miss the cut then after rounds of 76-73 but has made rapid strides since turning pro and secured his first European Tour win in last October's British Masters to cap a sparkling second half of the season. He's not recaptured that form in 2016 but has warmed up for his Masters return with four starts on the PGA TOUR. After failing to cash at the Honda Classic, he posted T35 at the WGC-Cadillac and T27 at Bay Hill although the smart money says his lack of length will make Augusta National a tough place for him.

England's Matthew Fitzpatrick makes his Honda Classic debut on a sponsor exemption and is ranked No. 46 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The 2013 U.S. Amateur champ will make his WGC-Cadillac debut next week but stops off first at PGA National. He finished 12th in the Race to Dubai standings after last year's rookie campaign posting 10 top 10s on 32 starts with six podiums, including his maiden title at the British Masters in October. The 21-year-old went T26-T7 (WGC-HSBC)-T13-T4 in the four-event Finals Series. He's off to a slow start thus far in his second season with one top 25 (T16, Nedbank Challenge) and went 2-for-3 in the Desert Swing with T26 his best in Abu Dhabi (won by Rickie Fowler). Fitzpatrick missed the cut (by one) at last week's inaugural Maybank Championship Malaysia (70-72).

Matthew Fitzpatrick popped up on yet another leaderboard after posting a 4-under-par 35-33=68 on day one of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

This guy is becoming one of the most consistent players on the European Tour. After 10 top 10s last year, he's back in the groove here after a bogey-free afternoon lap of Abu Dhabi GC. The 21-year-old, who missed the cut on his debut at this event 12 months ago, set his stall out with eight opening pars before circling birdies at 8, 10, 14 and 15. He came to rest four shots behind leader Bryson DeChambeau and is currently T7. Fitzpatrick split 8 (of 14) fairways, hit 16 greens in regulation and kept his card clean with 2-for-2 scrambling.
Jan 21 - 8:45 AM

Matthew Fitzpatrick closed out his rookie campaign with a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in round four of the DP World Tour Championship, good enough for T4 on 13-under 275.

The Englishman has lived up to his billing, and then some, with a Tour-high 10 top 10 finishes in 2015. Seven of those have come in his final 13 starts and he ends the season ranked 12th on the Race to Dubai. Teeing it up for the 32nd time this week, the busy 21-year-old squared two bogeys against a birdie in his opening three holes but settled down after that. He picked up another shot at 7 to turn in 36 and rounded off with birdies at 14 and 18. Fitzpatrick missed just one fairway all day and hit 16 greens in regulation. Watch out for him in 2016.

In his first competitive round at the DP World Tour Championship, Matthew Fitzpatrick posted a 4-under-par 33-35=68.

Does this guy ever have a poor round? The 21-year-old rookie broke par for the ninth straight 18 in the Final Series (seven of those in the 60s) with a lap of the Earth course which featured five birdies and a single dropped shot. He made his move around the turn thanks to par breakers at 6, 8, 9 and 10 and polished off an excellent opening day with another at 18 to wipe out a bogey at 16. He's currently T7 on the live leaderboard, just two shots behind clubhouse leaders Marcus Fraser, Ian Poulter, Andy Sullivan and Martin Kaymer. Strong iron play was the backbone of his 68, Fitzpatrick missing just one green in regulation.

Matt Fitzpatrick enjoyed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's finale of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to register 15-under 273 for the tournament, just two shots off the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

The kid is proving that he belongs at this level almost every time he pegs it. He walked off with a huge smile and sitting T5 on the leaderboard, so you'd be smiling, too, as you wait to see which six-figure payday awaits. The 21-year-old scattered five birdies at Sheshan International today, including a 4 at the 18th hole. He birdied the last in every round.

Matt Fitzpatrick reached the halfway point of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in 7-under-par 68-69=137 and sits seven strokes back of the 36-hole lead.

The 21-year-old Englishman is enjoying his WGC debut, isn't he? The recent winner of the British Masters is skyrocketing in value and continues to pour it on. Now, thanks to a double bogey at the par-4 13th hole in today's second round, Fitzpatrick sat birdie-free 2-over through four holes, but he rebounded with five birdies and nothing else but pars the rest of the way. Remember that the non-member FedExCup points earned in WGCs contribute to the targets for Special Temporary Membership this season and fully exempt status in 2016-17, but should a non-member win a tournament, the non-member FedExCup points earned in the WGCs will not contribute to his points that determine his placement in the official FedExCup standings once membership is applied. It's a lesson we all learned with Shane Lowry three months ago when the Irishman won at Firestone but didn't get into the Playoffs.

Matt Fitzpatrick made a back-nine surge to card a 3-under-par 35-32=67 on day two of the UBS Hong Kong Open at Fanling.

The British Masters winner was back in the pack after 10 pars and a bogey at 9 over his opening 11 holes. But a first birdie of the day at 12 proved the catalyst and he picked up further shots at 13, 14 and 17 to surge into the top 10. At 6-under 134 the youngster is within three of Justin Rose's lead and in position to go in search of back-to-back wins following his breakthrough victory at Woburn.

With a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in Sunday's final round, Matt Fitzpatrick posted 15-under 269 and completed a two-shot, wire-to-wire victory in the British Masters at Woburn.

This had been coming. Fitzpatrick looked destined for great things on the pro circuit after winning the 2013 U.S. Amateur and, after coming through Q-School at the end of 2014, the rookie has posted three top three finishes in his last six strokeplay starts. He took the final, and most difficult, step today thanks to a back-nine charge on his home English turf. Fitzpatrick looked to be falling behind after playing his first 10 holes in even par but surged into the lead with birdies at 11, 12, 15 and 17. That allowed him to absorb a bogey at 18 and still finish two in front of Shane Lowry, Fabrizio Zanotti and Soren Kjeldsen. "It's not going to sink in for a long time, I know that," said the 21-year-old, who split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation on Sunday. Overall, he was 14-for-19 in scrambling for the week, including 4-for-6 in round four. Fitzpatrick is now exempt into the 2016 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Overnight co-leader Matt Fitzpatrick added a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of the British Masters, posting 12-under 201 for the 54-hole co-lead with Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Since holding the outright lead after the opening round, the Brit has settled for joint leads after each of the last two rounds. In today's trot around Woburn Golf Club, Fitzpatrick covered a lone bogey at the par-4 second hole with four birdies thereafter. He totaled 14 greens in regulation and 30 putts for the second consecutive round. The efficiency sets up the wunderkind's latest chance to break through on the European Tour. "Some great names have won wire-to-wire and it would be nice to add mine to that," said the 21-year-old. "It was obviously something in the back of my mind but I'm just bothered about hopefully playing good golf and we'll see." Fellow overnight co-leader Søren Kjeldsen shot 69 on Saturday. At 11-under 202, the Dane shares third place with Fabrizio Zanotti of Paraguay.

First-round leader Matt Fitzpatrick added a 2-under-par 36-33=69 to his opening 64 and is tied at the top after 36 holes of the British Masters in England.

Despite a slow start to today's second round, the young Englishman finished fast to post 9-under 133 at the midpoint. He ended the day in equal first spot with Dane Soren Kjeldsen, the pair enjoying a one-shot lead over Richard Bland and Kiradech Aphibarnrat. Fitzpatrick opened his morning lap of the Marquess course at Woburn with a birdie at 10 but gave the shot back with a bogey-6 at the next. He also went birdie-bogey at 15 and 16 and suffered another blemish at the 1st. But the former U.S. Amateur champion gathered himself and circled birdies at 3, 7 and 9 to stay very much on track for his first European Tour win. "I'm just playing one hole, one round at a time if I'm honest and the big thing me and (manager) Chubby (Chandler) have been talking about is just creeping up the world rankings as much as possible," said Fitzpatrick, who split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation.

With a 7-under-par 31-33=64, Matt Fitzpatrick assumed the lead after day one of the British Masters at Woburn.

Playing in front of his home English fans, the 21-year-old posted an eagle and six birdies on his afternoon lap of the Marquess course to finish a stroke in front of Marc Warren, Lee Slattery, Soren Kjeldsen and Robert Karlsson. Fitpatrick traded a birdie with a bogey on the opening two holes but then got to work with par breakers at 5 and 6 followed by an eagle-3 at 7. He picked up another shot at 13 and produced a birdie-birdie finish to secure day one honours. "Tee to green, it is pretty tough if you don't hit in the fairway," said the former U.S. Amateur champion. "The rough isn't deep but it's quite wet so it clings to the face and it's difficult to get it the normal distance of your irons. It's a test all round but tee to green it's been tough." Fitzpatrick split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 13 greens in regulation and was 4-for-5 in scrambling.

Matt Fitzpatrick carded the lowest score on the European Tour this season with a second-round 10-under-par 28-32=60 at the KLM Open on Friday.

After starting the day outside the cut line following an opening 1-over 71, the Englishman catapulted himself up to 9-under 131 at the midpoint and into a tie for third with a morning round featuring 10 birdies and eight pars. Preferred lies at Kennemer due to rabbit damage (yes, seriously!) meant it wouldn't have counted as the Tour's first official sub-60 round. Fitzpatrick parred his opening hole, the 10th, and then circled birdies at six of the next seven. He added another four on his second nine but couldn't find one more at 8 and 9 to break the elusive barrier. "I was thinking about the 59 after the front nine to be honest! I was already celebrating going out in 28 actually so to give myself a shot at that magic number was great," said Fitzpatrick, who hit 15 greens in regulation and needed just 23 putts. "Shame that putt at the end came up short but I'll take 60 any day of the week!"
