When those couple of short putts missed on the back nine, I worried for Matt Fitzpatrick. For a split second I thought I saw the bottom lip quiver again….he does get very down on himself sometimes.
But I needn't have worried. If caddie Billy Foster saw greatness in this slight kid with his braces and skechers then he should know….and he did. When it was needed Fitzpatrick showed the steel his hometown of Sheffield is famous for culminating in a shot for the ages from the sand on the final hole. Guts and glory.
This US Open had it all. Eyes on the LIV guys, how would they fare? Whispers on who'll be next to jump ship? Phil wasn't his smiley self, neither was Shane after being paired with him. Rahmbo and Rory were primed but they didn't fire on Sunday. Scheffler for once looked human. Instead Will Zalatoris is the new man that dances with champions. Played out on a Brookline canvass that would take your breath away and fry your nerves in equal measure. Fairways lined with Boston fans, sport mad, stone mad, oiled up and the greatest in the World. This was one US Open that will never be forgotten.
Using his Titleist TSi3 driver Matt Fitzpatrick drove his Pro V1x 309.2 yards, over 8 yards longer than the field average. He ranked 2nd overall in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee with +4.78. Brookline is a course that requires pinpoint iron approaches and the 27 year old delivered in spades with his Ping S55 irons, especially in the final round where he hit 17 greens in regulation with a Strokes Gained: Approach clip of +2.63. Around the greens Matt dominated the field with his Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges ranking 1st in Strokes Gained: Around with +5.65. His Bettinardi DASS BB1 Flow Tour Dept putter came up trumps too in the clutch moments, none moreso than on the 13th from 48 feet for birdie. In total he circled 19 birdies versus 13 bogeys in an unforgettable US Open performance. The win sees him climb from 18th to 10th in the latest World Golf Rankings and he's a 20/1 shot to repeat the feat at The Open next month.
