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
Fades in final round in Dubai
November 21, 2022
Fitzpatrick had to settle for a share of fifth place after shooting a one-over 73 in the final round of the DP World Tour Championship.
ANALYSIS
Fitzpatrick got off to a blazing start with a 65 in round one that included five straight birdies. He came into the week in third in the Race to Dubai, but was projected to move to No. 1 after Rory McIlroy opened with a round of 71. McIlroy would continue to move up the board as the week went on, which forced Fitzpatrick to have to win to claim the season-long title on the European Tour. Unfortunately, Fitzpatrick struggled in the final round after starting the day just one adrift of Jon Rahm. You would think one day Fitzpatrick will get to hold the crown of top player on the DP World Tour due to his commitment to the tour and love for the Earth Course in Dubai where he has victories in 2016 and 2020. The 2022 U.S. Open Champion will look to close out a strong year at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

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.
