When Matt Fitzpatrick won the 2013 U.S. Amateur, he became the first English winner of the event since Harold Hilton in 1911.
Shortly after winning the U.S. Amateur, Matt enrolled at Northwestern University to play college golf but left within his first year to pursue a pro career.
Born in Sheffield, England, Fitzpatrick is a big fan of the soccer team Sheffield United.
His younger brother, Alex, is also a professional golfer who went pro after a four-year college career at Wake Forest.
