More than a US Open, Fitzpatrick wins his first major tournament

Brooklyn, Mass – This year ‘s US Open began with an unprecedented confrontation between golfers who remained an established group of loyal PGA Tour loyalists and former teammates who have just joined the new, rebellious, Saudi – backed LIV Golf Series. . But in the impending confrontation near Boston, the country club broke down in the first round on Thursday when golfers from both camps met without disagreement.

LIV Golf-related players have also long since disappeared from the fray.

On Sunday, the ongoing rift in men’s professional golf was almost unresolved, but it was overshadowed by an interesting shooting in the final round between the three best young players in the sport: Matt Fitzpatrick, a 27-year-old Englishman, and American Will Zalatori, 25. And Scott Scheffler, 25.

Eventually, Fitzpatrick, who won the U.S. Amateur Tournament at Country Club nine years ago, escaped the crucifixion, winning his first major golf championship in the fourth round by 68, putting him six times ahead of the tournament.

Zalatori and Scheffler retreated with one blow.

The pressure-filled fourth round went to the last two holes, where Fitzpatrick led Zlatoris, his playing partner, with one blow. He had a two-stroke advantage over Scheffler, who defeated two groups before Fitzpatrick and Zlatori, the third-round leaders.

But Scheffler smashed the 17th hole to reach five and connected Zalathoris, who, like Fitzpatrick, was in the 17th hole.

He arrived at 444 yards, par-4 to hole 18, in the country club signature hole. Zalatoris drilled one shot at the threshold and the other shot at 14 feet. Fitzpatrick left a finger kick in the onion bunker, but from 156 yards he struck a sharp iron that bounded the green and stopped 17 feet from the hole.

Fitzpatrick then confidently raised the pair. Zalatoris’s bird ball moved less than an inch to the left of the hole to connect Fitzpatrick and start the playoffs.

While Saturday’s third round played in the raging winds, which made the greens strong and fast – and only released seven rounds – the conditions on Sunday were relatively good. Country Club is a terrific course in any weather, but the forecast was cool temperatures and moderately strong winds, which predicted another difficult day for the world’s best golfers. Instead, the wind blew and the cloud cover became a pleasant day in the 60s. First of all, at night the storm poured a quarter of a centimeter of rain on the little green of the club, which slowed them down and made it difficult to install.

As a result, the pitch can be more aggressive, especially if the shot landed on the pitch. However, in some cases, golfers may have been given false confidence because costly mistakes were still commonplace.

Zalatoris started the day tied for the lead today with a four-pointer with Fitzpatrick, but made an earlier mistake when he was overtaken by Bogge from a second hole below 67 feet. Then, in the next hole, he sent his second shot to the green side of the bunker, causing a second consecutive bog. But Zalatoris rarely looked shredded. He restrained himself with three pars in a row, and with a par-3, 158-yard sixth hole, he drilled his tea flag 2 feet away for a simple bird. Zalatoris’ approach from 164 yards to the seventh green par-4 jumped on the green and rolled just inches to the left of the hole. His tap bird returned him for up to four equal rounds. When Zalatori slammed 17-foot bird tennis into the ninth hole, he rolled into a low-level 5, just one stroke behind Fitzpatrick.

After a stable equalizer in the 10th hole, Zalatoris cleverly and safely played downhill in the par-3 11th hole, playing just 108 yards a week (with a terribly difficult location in the back left hole). Zalatoris dropped his shot down the hole and rolled into an 18-foot pedestal for the bird to jump below six, giving him the lead in the tournament at the time. But the missed firm from the 12th thee led to the removal of the green stripe and eventually the bogeyman.

After seeing Zalatoris, who was below five, Fitzpatrick, who was in second place in last month’s PGA Championship final, attacked. At the 13th hole, standing on top of a 48-foot’s bird’s pout, he slowly but convincingly swung the snake, from left to right, into the hole to bite Zalathoris.

Like everyone at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday, Fitzpatrick’s round was uneven and unpredictable. He strongly kicked three pars and two birds in the five holes of his opening. But the tea shot at his 3rd sixth hole was too long, the hole swam 66 feet, leading to a bogeyman. Fitzpatrick comfortably finished fifth in eighth place, but like many on Sunday, he failed to maintain a positive momentum. He hit the 10th hole when the second long shot missed the green and led to another bogeyman. Then a tiny 11th tormented Fitzpatrick as a 7-foot pout swam a hole for a second consecutive bogeyman.

Apparently, Scheffler led the tournament on Saturday with a sparkling front nine, but then turned everything back on a back row with a series of bogeys. On Sunday, Scheffler again cut nine in front, with four birds in his first six holes. Shefler’s close-up shots with small, devilish greens were accurate, and his work on the insidious installation surfaces was excellent, as three of his four early bird shoots were transformed from the outside to a height of 12 feet.

But then Scheffler’s shot left him as he needed three shots to deliver the ball to the 10th hole from 38 feet into the hole. Worse, in the ingenious 11th hole, a 7-foot-long shot by Shefler cut through the hole and gave him three putsch booms in a row, dropping him to four for the tournament. Scheffler remained in battle, though, five in a row with Paris from the 12th to the 16th hole.

Hidek Matsuyama scored one of the best early scores when he shot with less than 65, five birds and no bogey to finish the championship at a low level of 3. Matsuyama needed only 25 shots in the last round.
