Fitzpatrick Named In Walker Cup Squad

US Amateur Champion Matt Fitzpatrick continues his dream season by being named in the Great Britain & Ireland squad for the Walker Cup at the National Golf Links of America.

The youngster from Sheffield was top amateur at The Open in July which is an achievement in itself, but he went one better last weekend when he became US Amateur Champion, the first time an Englishman has won it for over a century.

Fitzpatrick has decided not to turn professional just yet though, he is going to go to college in America and finish his education first, which I think is a very wise move. He is only 18 and has plenty of time to make his game even better before teeing it up against the big boys on tour!
