Matt Fitzpatrick

28-Year-Old Golfer
2022–23 Fantasy Outlook
Fitzpatrick certainly picked the right time to breakthrough for his first PGA Tour victory by winning the U.S. Open at the site of his U.S. Amateur triumph in 2013 at The Country Club in Brookline. The last few years we have seem massive improvements to Fitzpatrick's ball-striking and short game, which have made him a very complete player. His big gains in distance should also pay off quite well going forward. The Englishman shattered his previous best seasons on the PGA Tour with 10 top-10's and 14 top-25's in 2021-22. Fitzpatrick ended the campaign second in SG: Total and third in scoring average. Expect another strong season next year from this rising 27-year-old. Read Past Outlooks
Runner-up at Italian Open
September 18, 2022
Fitzpatrick finished runner-up at the DS Automobiles Italian Open at Marco Simone GC in Rome, Italy with a four-day total of 14-under par.
ANALYSIS
Fitzpatrick was undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the field this weekend, and he did not disappoint. The highlight of his final round came at the par 5 12th hole, where the Englishman lipped out an approach shot for a would-be albatross. The reigning U.S. Open champ almost claimed his second national open of the season, but eventual winner Robert MacIntyre birdied the pair's first playoff hole to grab the trophy. With the result, Fitzpatrick moves from fourth to second in the DP World Tour season standings and inches a bit closer to overall leader Rory McIlroy.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2020
2019
2020-21 was Fitzpatrick's highest earning season on the PGA Tour thus far. He really peaked early in the spring where he went on a T5-T11-T10-T9 stretch. Putting has always been the Englishman's biggest strength, but his ball-striking was much improved this season. Despite his lack of length, Fitzpatrick was still top-20 in SG: off-the-tee. It's kind of hard to believe that he is just 26 years of age and he is fully capable of taking the next step and getting that first PGA Tour win in 2021-22.
Fitzpatrick had a solid campaign in his first year as a full time PGA Tour member with four top-10s and only two missed cuts. His putting led the way, ranking second in strokes gained at over 0.9 per round. It was enough to keep him inside the top 20 in SG: Total for the season.The Englishman is on the shorter end, so he needs to improve with the irons to take his game to the next level.
Fitzpatrick finished atop the non-member points list last season with 665, equivalent to 71st on the FedEx list to qualify for the PGA Tour this season for the first time. The Englishman seems poised for a big season. He only missed one cut last season in stroke-play events and had some high finishes, including a solo second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and T4 at WGC-Fed Ex St. Jude. Fitzpatrick will be one to pay close attention to at the majors - he was T12 in 2019 and 2018 at the U.S. Open. He is a bit shorter off the tee but very accurate, and his putter tends to keep him in the hunt.
