World No. 40 Matt Fitzpatrick pieced together a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in round one of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, matching the early target of fellow Englishman Richard Bland.
Fitzpatrick didn't break 70 in his first seven laps of the West Course but he's now 11-under for his last two rounds there after following his closing 66 last year with today's 67. He burst out of the gate with three birdies in his opening four holes and played par golf to the turn. After another par at 10, Fitzpatrick holed from 12 feet for birdie at 11 and rode a good bounce from the trees at 12 to sink an 18-footer for another red number. He missed a short one for par at 15, his only bogey of the day, but hit back with a final par breaker on the 17th. May 24 - 8:48 AM

World No. 38 Matthew Fitzpatrick is making his third start at THE PLAYERS after missed cuts in 2016 by one (69-74) and by three last year (76-73). UPDATE: Fitzpatrick finished T46 on 5-under 283 (72-70-70-71).

The Northwestern product is a 4-time winner on the Euro Tour in 95 events, most recently a P1 at the 2017 Omega European Masters 35 weeks ago in September. His best on the PGA TOUR in 36 starts is a pair of T7s at the 2016 WGC-HSBC and the 2016 Masters. Since the P1, the Englishman racked up eight straight top 20s overseas before missing the cut at the Dubai Desert Classic 15 weeks ago, his most recent start on his home tour. In this week via his Top 50 position in the OWGR, Fitzpatrick is making his eighth start of the season on the PGA TOUR, arriving off a T14 at the RBC Heritage four weeks ago (69-71-69-67).

World No. 38 Matthew Fitzpatrick painted a 5-under-par 35-32=67 on Moving Day at the 82nd Masters for a 54-hole total of even-par 216, up 27 places on the live leaderboard to T19 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Fitzpatrick is T21 while three players had the low rounds with 65s.

This is the 23-year-old's 12th major and fourth Masters. Today's 67 matches his best at the Masters (R4/2016) and is his second sub-70 in 13 laps. The Englishman's 67 also ties his best in a major, adding a third 67 to that total at the 2016 PGA/R4. He hit all 14 fairways and 14 greens in regulation, totaling 28 putts with zero 3-jacks after logging one in each of the first two rounds. The Northwestern product began his scoring with bogey-5 at hole 5 but then played his final 13 holes in blemish-free 6-under. He circled birdies at 7, 8, 12 and 14, adding eagle-3 at 15 from 11 feet. Fitzpatrick, a 4-time winner on the Euro Tour in 94 events, most recently a P1 at the 2017 European Masters, opened with 75-74 to make the cut on the number.
Apr 7 - 3:07 PM

Matt Fitzpatrick doesn't appear to be part of the conversation when gamers discuss the best European options at this week's Masters but he does have something that some of his rivals don't, proven course form.

After missing the cut as an amateur in 2014, the young Englishman's first appearance as a pro two years later resulted in an excellent tied seventh after an opening 71 and a closing 67. He also broke par in his first and fourth rounds 12 months ago when T32. That's some solid form compared to the likes of Tommy Fleetwood, Alex Noren and Tyrrell Hatton, who have yet to make a cut between them at Augusta National. The negative with Fitzpatrick is current form after two missed cuts in Florida but at the start of March he did shoot twice in the 60s when T30 at the WGC-Mexico Championship. A solid, patient temperament is also in his favor this week. He'll open his bid Thursday at 09:14 alongside Bryson DeChambeau and Bernd Wiesberger.
Apr 4 - 9:02 AM

Matthew Fitzpatrick will be hoping it is third time lucky as he seeks to progress from the group stages of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club.

Back in 2016 the Englishman downed Daniel Berger, but was in turn overcome by Phil Mickelson and Patrick Reed; his 1-2 record sending him home early. Last year he improved that first round record to 2-1 with wins over Chris Wood and Justin Thomas, but defeat to Kevin Na was costly; again no progress. The World No. 35 has only improved that 3-3 record to 7-6-1 in all match play events and needs to impress upon European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Born that he can compete mano a mano. Currently stuck in a rut, with a recent log book of MC-30-MC-MC, having before that ticked ten consecutive top 15 finishes. ET's new SG stats emphasise the strength of his on-the-greens game. He ranks third for SG: Putting with +1.417. Drawn in Group 10 with Paul Casey, Russell Henley and first day foe Kyle Stanley.

Matthew Fitzpatrick will make a fourth appearance at Bay Hill Club & Lodge this week in the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard.

An ever-improving record on the track for the slight Englishman. Back in 2014 he missed the cut, two years later he was T27 and last year he pegged 67-69 pre-weekend to lie T3 at halfway. A Saturday 72 maintained that, but a Sunday 76 saw him drop back to T13. "I like that it’s quite penal off the tee and missing the greens," he said. "If you really hit it well tee to green you can shoot some good scores. And I enjoy playing courses like this, it’s a challenge." Ended the 2017 season like a train (eight finishes of T15 or better in a row, started with a win in the European Masters) and maintained it with T19 in Hong Kong and T3 in Abu Dhabi. But since gone MC-T30-MC (the latter last week).
Mar 13 - 8:52 AM

Matt Fitzpatrick was one of nine Europeans in the top 16 at last year's WGC-Mexico Championship and he'll try his luck again this week.

On first glance, the tree-lined Club de Golf Chapultepec which requires plenty of strategy looked a good course for the young Englishman and he made a good fist of it to finish T16 with rounds of 71-67-72-68 taking him to 6-under, eight behind winner Dustin Johnson. Fitzpatrick enjoyed an excellent run of results in the final three months of 2017 and didn't finish worse than T19 in nine starts after capturing the European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre. That tournament is played high in the Swiss mountains so he can clearly handle courses at altitude which is the requirement this week. The Ryder Cup star opened 2018 with a top three in Abu Dhabi before missing the cut in Dubai despite a second-round 67. Gamers have every right to expect him to perform strongly again here.
Feb 28 - 2:36 PM

World No. 28 Matt Fitzpatrick authored a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in his second round at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic but with scoring super-low at Emirates GC, his 36-hole total of 4-under 140 missed the cut by a shot.

A total of 70 players made it through at -5, the lowest cut mark by two shots in the history of a tournament which started in 1989. Fitzpatrick had eight birdies in his second round but a double bogey at No. 4, his 13th hole of the round, cost him. Of course, the main damage was done on day one when he could only shoot a 73. Others to miss the 36-hole cut included: 140- Paul Dunne, Joost Luiten, Jorge Campillo, Louis Oosthuizen, Graeme McDowell, Ernie Els, Lee Westwood, Paul Lawrie ... 141- Thomas Bjorn, George Coetzee, Colin Montgomerie, Chris Wood ... 142- Thongchai Jaidee, Ryan Fox, Eddie Pepperell ... 143- Hideto Tanihara, Pablo Larrazabal ... 144- Soren Kjeldsen ... 148- Danny Willet.

Matthew Fitzpatrick closed with a hat-trick of birdies to confirm a first top ten in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship; his final round 3-under-par 35-34=69 left him T3 on 18-under 270, four shots back of winner Tommy Fleetwood.

Although a U.A.E. winner in the 2016 DP World Tour Championship Fitzpatrick had labored somewhat in past renewals of this tournament (MC-T26-MC), but his Sunday circuit changed that. For most of the week he had been superb on the front nine (notching 33-33-29) but this time he managed only eight pars and one birdie (at 4) for 35. On the back nine an early bogey at 11 hinted at trouble but he ticked 16, 17 and 18 to leap from T8. Small margins, but with a Ryder Cup to qualify for, such finishes will matter this season.

Matt Fitzpatrick thrashed a 9-under-par 29-34=63 in round three of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, jumping 17 spots on Moving Day to tied third.

At 15-under 201, the Englishman is just two swings behind leaders Thomas Pieters and Ross Fisher. Fitzpatrick looked as if he could put a ridiculous number on the board when making eight birdies in his first 10 holes, his only pars coming at 3 and 7. Henrik Stenson's course-record 62 and even the European Tour's first official 59 were on when he added another circle at 12 to move 9-under for the day but he played his final third of the round in even par after a bogey at 16 against a birdie at the last. Still, that's the low round of the week and a huge leap forward. It puts him in right in the mix for Sunday. He said: "It was great. I don't know how to put it to be honest. We were very lucky. Front nine, every time I got on the green, I just holed every putt, basically, and I felt so comfortable on the greens. Just putted fantastic. Just a little bit of work to be done on the long game."

Ultra-consistent Matt Fitzpatrick hasn't finished outside the top 15 since winning September's European Masters and he's on target for another big week after starting the new 2018 Race to Dubai season with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in round one of the UBS Hong Kong Open at Fanling.

That's just one swing behind leader SSP Chawrasia. The Englishman took his string of top 15s to eight with T12 in last week's DP World Tour Championship and gamers/bettors were all over him here due to that superb run of form allied with the third place he took in his only start at Fanling in 2015. Fitzpatrick met those lofty expectations today to finish the day in tied second. The Englishman made his first move with birdie-4 at 13 and picked up another shot at 16. Twice he made bogey but he responded to the first (at No. 1) with three straight red numbers at 2, 3 and 4 before bouncing back from another square at 6 with a circle at 7. This matches his lowest round at Fanling.

Matthew Fitzpatrick cannot get enough of the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates; he posted a second round of 5-under-par 35-32=67 to total 10-under 134 and claim the 36-hole lead at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

The Englishman completed a tenth consecutive under-par round on the Greg Norman design, a tenth circuit which has ended with him ranked inside the top ten and he now averages 68.20 per lap - a successful defense of his title is definitely on the cards. At No. 3 he rolled in a 30'0" par-breaker, negotiating a shoulder on the green with no fuss. He then reached the turn with a birdie-bogey duo at 7 and 8. The back nine saw more action, opening with a tick at ten. At 14 his 3-wood approach to the 626-yard par-5 chased up the green to kick-in range for eagle, at 15 his 18'0" birdie putt from off the green went in at pace, at 18 more red seemed unlikely but he drained from 20'0". He is one shot clear of Tyrrell Hatton with Julian Suri, Justin Rose and Kiradech Aphibarnrat T3 on 8-under. He's flying under the radar this week: "Everyone is focussed on the Race to Dubai," he said. "I've nothing to lose."

Matthew Fitzpatrick started his defense of the DP World Tour Championship title in bold fashion with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 first round on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, two shots back of the clubhouse pacesetter Patrick Reed.

The Englishman is in a fine run of form, winning the European Masters in September and not ending a week outside the top 15 since. Yet during that run his opening lap has been nothing better than solid, with last week's 70 for T10 the closest to the lead. If he was going to change that, it is not surprising he should do so at this course: this is his ninth lap on it and he has never ended one of them outside the top ten. He opened with four straight pars and then threw three birdies in before the turn (at 5, 8 and 9). The back nine saw even more pars to begin with (seven) before he sprinted home with ticks at 17 and 18. The former thanks to draining a putt from 30'0".

Matthew Fitzpatrick is all set the defend the DP World Tour Championship title he so impressively won at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai 12 months ago.

In just two appearances in the Tour's grand finale the 23-year-old has proved that his lack of distance from the tee is no impediment to success on the 7,675 yard course. What's more he's done it without ever once lying outside the top ten at the end of any round. In 2015 he posted 68-69-68-70 to finish T4, then last year 69-69-66 got him T2 after 54 holes and a closing 67 overhauled Tyrrell Hatton's back nine lead. On that first start he ranked 6th for All-Round game with putting his only weakness; last year he topped both the Total Putting and All-Round rankings. He was triumphant in the European Masters in early September and hasn't been outside the top 15 since (a run of seven events in total).

Matthew Fitzpatrick blitzed a bogey-free round of 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the Turkish Airlines Open to hit the halfway mark on 8-under 134, tied for second on the live leaderboard but six back of the on-course leader Nicolas Colsaerts.

The Englishman has made just one error through 36 holes at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort in Antalya, but on his second circuit there was not one. He cruised to the turn with seven pars and birdies at 7 and 9. On the back nine there two more red numbers (at 13 and 17) plus an eagle-3 at the 503-yard par-5 15th. He's making a debut on the course but was T26 in the tournament in 2015 when three poor rounds (73-73-72) were mixed with a sensational round two 63. He's looking for a sixth top 15 finish in a row, and also a second win of the year.
