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. Jul 1 - 4:41 PM

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.
