Player Profile: Matt Fitzpatrick

Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick broke his Major duck at the 2022 US Open and he has firmly established himself as one of the leading players in the world.

Always known as an accurate hitter, Fitzpatrick has added extra distance to his game over the past couple of years and this helped him claim the US Open spoils at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts in 2022. 

The Sheffield-born golfer has appeared in two Ryder Cups, both ending in defeat in 2016 and 2021, and is part of the 12-man side that battles the USA at Marco Simone Golf Club later this year.

Fitzpatrick's net worth is believed to be around $10-15million and his biggest payday came when winning the 2022 US Open, when he pocketed $3.15m.

Who is Matt Fitzpatrick's caddie?

Fitzpatrick has the legendary Billy Foster on the bag and the duo have been working together since 2018, when the latter split with Lee Westwood after the duo decided they had achieved all they could together. 

Having never managed to win a Major as a caddie, Foster ended his long wait when he carried the bag for Fitzpatrick at the 2022 US Open. 

This was also the Sheffield-born ace's maiden Major. 

Foster has a wealth of experience in the game and he has caddied at more than 1,200 tournaments, having started life with South African Hugh Baiocchi, before then getting his first taste of the Ryder Cup with Gordon Brand Junior. 

During his time in the game, he has also caddied for such illustrious names like Seve Ballasteros, Tiger Woods, Darren Clarke, Sergio Garcia and Thomas Bjorn.

What clubs does Matt Fitzpatrick use?

Fitzpatrick is one of the rare players that doesn't have a large equipment contract with one manufacturer, allowing him the freedom to choose a variety of different makes for the bag. 

The Englishman has a Titleist TSi3 driver and Titleist Vokey Design SM9 wedges (52, 56-10S, 60-10S), while his ball of choice is also the Pro V1x from the same manufacturer. 

He has a Ping G410 fairway wood, Ping i210 four-iron and Ping S55 irons from five to pitching wedge. 

On the green, Fitzpatrick uses a Bettinardi DASS BB1 Fitz putter.

What is Matt Fitzpatrick's Ryder Cup record?

Fitzpatrick made his Ryder Cup debut in 2016 at Hazeltine National Golf Club and he endured a difficult time in the US, losing his foursomes match alongside Henrik Stenson before being bested by Zach Johnson in the singles. 

The Englishman made the team for the 2021 event at Whistling Straits but he again failed to contribute to Europe's total, losing both of his pair's matches before then being edged out in the singles. 

It means Fitzpatrick's Ryder Cup record stands at 0-5-0 (win-losses-ties).
