Matt 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, Matt 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.
Nov 8 - 1:47 AM

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.
Nov 6 - 2:39 AM

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.
Oct 23 - 4:49 AM

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.
Oct 11 - 1:01 PM

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.
Oct 10 - 3:22 PM

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.
Oct 9 - 9:19 AM

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.
Oct 8 - 2:36 PM

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!"
Sep 11 - 9:11 AM

Matt Fitzpatrick tacked on a 5-under-par 35-32=67 to his opening 66 and shares the lead after two rounds of the D+D REAL Czech Masters in Prague.

Fitzpatrick is tied at the top on 11-under 133 with Sweden's Pelle Edberg, the pair a shot clear of Belgian Thomas Pieters. The young Englishman's Friday lap of Albatross featured three birdies along with an eagle-3 at the 12th and, for the second day running, he was bogey free. So far this week, Fitzpatrick has split 24 (of 28) fairways, hit 32 greens out of 36 and is 4-for-4 in scrambling. He'll go into the weekend in great position to secure his first European Tour win. "It was very consistent today," he said. "I played nicely and hit a lot of greens again which is always important to keep making pars and then take your chances when you have them. I got a bit frustrated in the middle of the round when I wasn’t holing any putts; I missed a few chances but picked it up on the back nine."
Aug 28 - 1:01 PM

With a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in his first round at the D+D REAL Czech Masters, Matt Fitzpatrick owns a share of the clubhouse lead.

The impressive English youngster missed just one green in regulation during his morning lap of Albatross Golf Resort, also splitting 11 (of 14) fairways. He set the tone with a pair of opening birdies at 10 and 11 and enjoyed another spurt with further par breakers at 16, 18, 2 and 3. The former U.S. Amateur champion parred his way in from there to match the early total of compatriot Sam Hutsby. Fitzpatrick sits 41st on the Race To Dubai, climbing up in rapidly in the last few months with a second place in the Omega European Masters and a T3 at the Lyoness Open. This is his lowest opening round of the season.
Aug 27 - 7:02 AM

Matt Fitzpatrick continued his hot form by advancing to the last 32 of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Matchplay in Scotland with a 6&4 win over Bradley Dredge.

The young Englishman, who finished runner-up in last week's Omega European Masters in Switzerland, was in front from the very first hole after Dredge could only make bogey. The Welshman did cut the gap to just 1 down by winning the fifth but Fitzpatrick dominated from that point, taking 6, 7 and 8 before wrapping up victory with wins at 12 and 14. The 10th seed will now take on American Peter Uihlein (a winner over Oliver Wilson by 2 holes) for a place in the last 16.
Jul 30 - 12:50 PM

Matt Fitzpatrick hung up a 6-under-par 34-30=64 to join Danny Willett atop the leaderboard after round three of the Omega European Masters in Switzerland.

The rookie's lap of the mountain course at Crans-sur-Sierre was the low 18 of the day and moved him up 14 spots to T1. Fitzpatrick circled three birdies against two bogeys on the front nine but made his move on the back with par breakers at 10, 13, 14, 15 and 17. That inward 30 put him level with fellow Englishman Willett on 12-under 198 and two in front of Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin. Fitzpatrick, who opened with rounds of 69 and 65, split 10 (of 13) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. He took 26 putts. The former U.S. Amateur champion was T3 in the Lyoness Open last month and will go into Sunday with a great chance to secure his first European Tour win.
Jul 25 - 11:48 AM

Matt Fitzpatrick took an immediate shine to Diamond Country Club, posting a 3-under-par 35-34=69 on his opening lap.

Of course, the rookie is seeing plenty of courses for the first time this season and remains a work in progress after lots of ups and downs so far. But he's on track for another good finish here -- indeed, a fifth top 25 in seven starts -- after a solid first round in warm morning conditions which featured four birdies and a single bogey. The dropped shot came at 14 after four opening pars and he recovered with birdies at 15, 16, 1 and 6. Fitzpatrick hit 8 (of 14) fairways and missed just two greens in regulation.
