Matt Fitzpatrick compiled a 4-under-par 35-32=67 to move up to tied third place at the halfway mark of the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open.
The Englishman closed with three birdies in his final five holes, including a walk-off par breaker at the ninth, to move to 7-under 135. That's just two behind leader Thorbjørn Olesen. After birdies at 12 and 13, Fitzpatrick's only difficult moment was a double bogey-6 at the 17th but he recorded a bounceback birdie at 18 before coming home in 32. After finding life tough going in most of his tournaments so far in 2015, he'll have a genuine title shot going into the weekend. May 8 - 10:13 AM

Matt Fitzpatrick tees it up in this week's inaugural AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open at Heritage GC but it won't be his first trip to the island.

The English youngster took part in the AfrAsia Golf Masters in Mauritius last December and, although that was at a different venue, his tied fifth place should ensure warm memories about a return to the idyllic destination in the Indian Ocean. A windy forecast should also benefit the 2013 U.S. Amateur champion as he looks to add to the good performances he produced in nearby South Africa earlier in the season. The first of those was a top five in the South African Open while he also finished T15 at the Tshwane Open in March.
May 5 - 6:19 PM

Matt Fitzpatrick crafted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 to sit second in the clubhouse early on day one of the Africa Open.

It's been a rocky road for the young Englishman on the European Tour this season and an early exit in last week's Joburg Open was his fourth straight missed cut. Today, he kept mistakes to a minimum with just a single bogey on his card at 8. He birdied all three par 5s - 1, 3 and 15 - and added another par breaker at 7. Friday's have been the problem for the former U.S. Amateur Open champion so he'll have to guard against a dip in round two tomorrow. Fitzpatrick actually kicked off his 2015 campaign with a T5 in the South African Open so is in good position to try and match that after his strong opening 18 holes.

Matt Fitzpatrick is struggling but the cards may have fallen in his favor at this week's Hero Indian Open.

The 2013 U.S. Amateur champion started 2015 with a bang by posting a top five in the South African Open but since then it's been a battle. He's missed three cuts out of four and when he did cash could only finish T72 in Qatar after a pair of 77s on the weekend. However, Fitzpatrick's straight hitting -- he was 5th for Driving Accuracy in Qatar and 11th in South Africa - looks a great fit for short and tight Delhi Golf Club where some players don't even bother carrying a driver. If the young Englishman can get his putter working, a big week beckons.

Matthew Fitzpatrick continues his rookie season on the European Tour by heading to Asia to take part in the Maybank Malaysian Open at Kuala Lumpur G&CC.

A top five at the South African Open on his first start of 2015 suggested the 2013 U.S. Amateur champion might take flight straight away but he came back down to earth during a difficult Gulf Swing. The 20-year-old Englishman failed to cash in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai and shot a pair of weekend 77s to finish T72 in Qatar. Fitzpatrick's greens in regulation stats were solid for all three events but his putter was stone cold.
Feb 2 - 5:29 PM

Matthew Fitzpatrick survived a bruising triple-bogey eight to take a share of fifth place in the South African Open at Glendower.

The 2013 U.S. Amateur champion closed with a 1-over-par 36-37=73 today to finish at 7-under 281. Playing in just his ninth European Tour event, the 20-year-old Englishman wobbled with a double-bogey six at the par-4 seventh but did most of the damage at the par-5 13th, a hole he'd eagled the previous day. A visit to the water resulted in an eight but he showed his solid temperament to play the final four holes in one under. Fitzpatrick, who claimed the 11th card in Q School at the end of 2014, finished four behind winner Andy Sullivan.
Jan 11 - 2:40 PM

Matthew Fitzpatrick turned in respective rounds of 73 and 75 to post 4-over-par 148 in today's Local Final Qualifying at Hillside Golf Club in Southport England, 10 strokes too many to join the playoff for three spots into The Open Championship.

The 2013 U.S. Amateur turned pro immediately after the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, thus forgoing his automatic exemption into the season's third major. Instead, Oscar Floren of Sweden (6-under 67-71=138) shared medalist honors with Englishmen Chris Hanson (69-69=138) and John Singleton (72-66=138). They then outlasted amateur Nick Marsh of England (69-69=138) in a playoff. Of the trio, only Floren has PGA TOUR experience, going 0-for-2 in The Open Championship. Other notables that failed to qualify at Hillside include: 139--Steven Tiley, who placed T26 in the 2013 Open Championship ... 147--Graeme Storm.

Matthew Fitzpatrick is expected to turn professional after next month's U.S. Open at Pinehurst.

Fitzpatrick, 19, won the U.S. Amateur last summer and attended Northwestern University for one semester before returning home to England to focus on golf. His U.S. Amateur title granted earned exemptions into the first three majors as long as he remained an amateur, so he'll be forfeiting his berth into the Open Championship. (He can still qualify through another conduit.) He missed the cut on the number at the Masters, but chased it with a T23 at the RBC Heritage where he was exempt, again, as the reigning U.S. Amateur. Fitzpatrick is currently No. 2 behind Patrick Rodgers in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

Matthew Fitzpatrick spun a bogey-free 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the RBC Heritage.

Fitzpatrick is making the most of his exemption by way of his U.S. Amateur win last summer, and will also compete in the U.S. Open and Open Championship if he remains an amateur. He backed up a pair of even-par rounds with Saturday's gem to reach 2-under 211. The longest of his two birdies was a 4'3" effort on the par-4 10th. This is his third PGA TOUR event of the season, missing the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Masters in his first two outings. One would assume that he's testing the waters for a professional career, and he has to be happy with how he's performed through 54 holes this week at Harbour Town.

Matthew Fitzpatrick is set for his first look at Bay Hill in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Fitzpatrick captured the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championship, so get ready to see his name listed in some big fields in the coming months. He bested Oliver Goss 4 and 3 for the title. The Northwestern University student also earned The Silver Medal as low amateur in the 2013 Open Championship, so he has some experience in premier fields. It's hard to know how he'll respond to the Bermuda greens of Bay Hill, so at this point the value is learning about him for the future.

Matthew Fitzpatrick emerged with the title at the 113th U.S. Amateur Championship after defeating Oliver Goss 4 and 3 in the final match.

You may remember the Englishman from Muirfield last month. He took home The Silver Medal as low amateur. Now No. 2 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, he closed out the Australian today with pars at the 32nd and 33rd holes to add another significant piece of hardware to his trophy cabinet. Fitzpatrick was never down more than one hole later than the 10th hole in the scheduled 36-hole finale. Today's victory grants him exemption into the first three majors of 2014 as long as he remains an amateur. He'll be entering his freshman year at Northwestern University. Goss is about to embark on his sophomore season at the University of Tennessee.

Matthew Fitzpatrick is your 2013 low amateur at The Open Championship after signing for a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in the final round, finishing the week at 10-over 294.

Fitzpatrick strolled Muirfield's fairways with Fred Couples on Sunday morning, circling three birdies while giving back two bogeys and a double bogey. While the leaders have yet to tee off, Fitzpatrick won't be going anywhere. He has to hang around to pick up his silver medal and share the stage with today's champion.
