    Did You Know?

Golf’s newest Major Champion. A month after finishing joint fifth in May’s PGA Championship, Fitzpatrick held off world No 1 Scottie Scheffler and PGA runner-up Will Zalatoris to lift the U.S. Open on the same Brookline course where he became U.S. Amateur champion in 2013.

He was the first English winner of that title since 1911 and went top of the amateur world rankings as a result, while his U.S. Open triumph took him into the game’s top 10 for the first time.

Leading amateur in The Open in 2013, when he finished joint 44th aged 18, the former British Boys' Champion won Walker and Ryder Cup honours in the space of three years and now has eight Tour titles.

In his first full season as a professional he had a round of 60 at the KLM Open and achieved his maiden victory in the British Masters.

In 2019 he had no fewer than five runner-up finishes, including the PGA Tour’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, then started 2020 with another in Abu Dhabi before ending that season with his second success at the DP World Tour Championship in five years. Lee Westwood pipped him to the European Tour No 1 spot by finishing runner-up, however.
