Matthew Fitzpatrick became the youngest-ever winner of the Nordea Masters, thanks to a final round 1-under-par 34-37=71 that earned him a three shot victory over Lasse Jensen at Bro Hof Slott GC on 16-under 272.
The Englishman had built a solid five shot advantage over the field through 54 holes and he never looked likely to fold on Sunday. He ticked birdies on 2 and 9 to make the turn in control and although he marked bogey at 10 and 18, he added a third red number at 12 as he eased to a second professional victory (in 51 starts). His long game served him well as he found all 13 fairways in round four, and made 16 of the greens in regulation. Aged 21 years and 268 days, he becomes the second youngest Englishman to bag two European Tour wins. Only Sir Nick Faldo was younger. "I played fantastic," he said afterwards. "I'd probably say this is the best I've played today." Jun 5 - 12:45 PM

Matt Fitzpatrick took a while to hit his stride but came good on the back nine and kicked five shots clear after posting a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in round three of the Nordea Masters at Bro Hof Slott in Sweden.

Three clear overnight, the Englishman opened with seven pars before a bogey at 8 left him trailing Nicolas Colsaerts by a shot. But Fitzpatrick got hot after that and circled birdies at 9, 10, 13, 14 and 15 to put daylight between himself and the chasing pack. At 15-under 201, he leads Colsaerts and defending champion Alex Noren by five while it's a further shot back to Lasse Jensen. "It was a bit of a slow start, and I find the front nine more difficult than the back nine, especially in the wind," said the 21-year-old, who piped 9 (of 13) fairways, hit 13 greens in regulation and took 27 putts. "But I stayed patient and got my rewards in the end. It's one of the things I've learned since turning pro. I putted really well again and let's hope it continues for one more day because tomorrow's the most important day."

With the low round of the week so far, Matthew Fitzpatrick signed for a 7-under-par 32-33=65 and kicked clear of the field after day two of the Nordea Masters in Sweden.

The Englishman painted 7 birdies, 11 pars and not a single bogey on his card at Bro Hof Slott on Friday morning and, at 11-under 133, leads by three shots from Nicolas Colsaerts, Ross Fisher, Andrew Johnston, Scott Henry and Alexander Bjork. Starting with a birdie at 10, the scene of his only dropped shot in an opening 68, he splashed further red at 12, 15 and 18 to turn in 32. He made another gain at No. 1 and then birdied the two par 3s at 4 and 7, almost holing his tee shot at the latter. A T7 at the Masters is his only top 10 of the season so far but this looks like a return to the hot form Fitzpatrick showed at the end of 2015, highlighted by his win at the British Masters. He hit 17 greens in regulation today after finding 15 yesterday. "I hit one or two poor shots but you're always going to do that," said the 21-year-old. "I putted really well today, I holed virtually everything so it was just one of those days."

Matthew Fitzpatrick coasted around Bro Hof Slott GC in 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening salvo at the Nordea Masters.

The Englishman impressed observers on debut at Augusta National, when impressive all week before closing with a 67 to finish T7. But since then he has broken 70 just once, missed three cuts and has a best of only T47 last week at Wentworth. This 68 sets him back on course. He landed the ball on 15 greens in regulation and needed just 28 putts as he plotted his route round the Stckholm track. He made birdies at 3, 4 and 9 on the front nine, made bogey at 10, but closed out with red at 15 and 17. When he marked his card he was one behind the leaders, a group of six on 5-under.

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.

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.
Apr 10 - 5:21 PM

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.
