Young gun Fitzpatrick in shock after Woburn victory (Reuters)
By Tony Jimenez WOBURN, England (Reuters) – England’s Matt Fitzpatrick was in shock after completing a wire-to-wire victory in the British Masters on Sunday at the tender age of 21. “It’s unbelievable, it really is,” Fitzpatrick told reporters after a closing three-under-par 68 left him two strokes clear of Dane Soren Kjeldsen, Shane Lowry of Ireland and Paraguay’s Fabrizio Zanotti. It’s definitely come faster than I thought.” Fitzpatrick was three shots clear as he stood on the 72nd and final tee and could afford the luxury of a bogey five at the last before he was engulfed by joyous family and friends on the green and sprayed with celebratory champagne.
