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
T-7 finish at Sentry TOC
January 8, 2023
Fitzpatrick carded a three-under 70 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish 21-under and tied for seventh.
Fitzpatrick was in a share of second heading into the final round and was off to a good start after playing the first 10 holes in four-under. He was unable to get anything going from there, playing the final eight holes in one-over to fall out of contention. Fitzpatrick struggled with his ball-striking but ranked fifth in strokes-gained putting for the week. It was his first PGA Tour start this season after he posted a pair of top-5s on the DP World Tour in the fall.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
