Ryder Cup Profile #9 - 'The 22-year old who looks 12'

Age: 22, not actually 12!

Nationality: English

Lookalikes: The kid who delivers my paper

Nicknames: Fitz


Junior Scratch Winner

Mini Profile

Fitzpatrick is one of England’s biggest rising stars, he looks like he has just turned 12 but he's actually 22, and has got a big career ahead of him. He's the youngest golfer going to the Ryder Cup and this could be a big moment for him. Will the rookie make a name for himself?


Most likely to be found

Messing about on the golf carts


Least likely to say

You're drinking beer? Can I have one?


Most likely sponsorship deal after a good Ryder Cup?

Subway! After winning the British Masters Fitz went and celebrated his £500,000 win with a foot long whilst still in his golf gear.

£500k on Subway is going to be bad for the stomach


Celebrations if Europe wins...

Another Subway?


If he didn’t play golf...

Probably be at home playing FIFA as Sheffield United whilst flicking about on Tinder.


Proper swing this lad


Lara our judge was worried about whether Fitz was actually 22 and was worried about recriminations!


Can he play golf?

Yes. The answer is yes! Matty was once the best amateur golfer in the world, and to add to that he became the first English winner of the US Amateur tournament in over 100 years!

Fitz must be some kind of good, he went to a golf college in Chicago, the same one that Luke Donald went too but spent just one term there before turning pro!

He's one of the most accurate on tour, both driving accuracy and greens in regulation with over 70% fairways and 75% greens.

He also managed to win the 2015 British Masters and get seventh place in the US Masters.

Lara wouldn't rate him and he may look like the least intimidating person in the world but once he starts pouring putts in on you that might change!
