The 27-year-old English golfer won by a single stroke, holding off top players Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler to finish 6-under par in Sunday’s final round of the tournament held in Brookline, Mass.

Fitzpatrick becomes the first Englishman to win the U.S. Open in 2013.

Fitzpatrick previously won the 2013 U.S. Amateur at the same location, The Country Club. He’s the first player from outside the U.S. to win both the U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur.

“No words,” Fitzpatrick said after receiving the trophy. “It’s what you grow up dreaming of. It’s something I’ve worked so hard for such a long time. And you know there was a big monkey on my back trying to win over here. And everyone, all they ever talked about was that. And you know, to do it as a major for my first win, there’s nothing better.”

Runners-up Zalatoris and Scheffler both finished with a 5-under par.

Matt Fitzpatrick Biography, Wiki

Matt Fitzpatrick is a 27-year-old English golfer who earned his first major victory at the 2022 U.S. Open. 

It wasn’t the start of Fitzpatrick’s history with Brookline, though: He first made a name for himself at The Country Club in 2013 when he hoisted the gold U.S. Amateur trophy alongside his younger brother, Alex, who was his caddie during the tournament.

“That win opened up so many doors for my professional career,” Fitzpatrick told National Club Golfer. “It was something else, really.”

Fitzpatrick has impressed on the European Tour, winning seven events in seven years, including a 2015 British Masters victory where he defeated Shane Lowry.

Slowly but surely, Fitzpatrick’s European success has translated to American courses. He tied for fifth at the 2022 PGA Championship and finished tied for second in the Wells Fargo Championship in May, with his rise culminating in the U.S. Open victory.

With Fitzpatrick winning this year’s U.S. Open, he’s the first Englishman to win the tournament since Justin Rose did it in 2013. That’s a pretty solid company.
