2022 US Open Leaderboard, Winner: Matt Fitzpatrick Breaks First Big Championship, PGA Tour Win

The world’s second – ranked golfer without a PGA Tour victory finally broke the golf top level with his first major championship on a Sunday. Matt Fitzpatrick won the 2022 US Open at The Country Club in Brooklyn, Massachusetts on Sunday, winning the Under-6s without two birds and two finalists in the final seven holes.

The 27-year-old Fitzpatrick lifted the trophy by knocking down his 54-hole co-captain Will Zalatoris and 2022 Masters champion Scottie Scheffler with one stroke.

Fitzpatrick, who won the 2013 US Amateur title at The Country Club, added a dramatic USGA total with a win at the 122nd US Open. In doing so, he cemented his place in golf history as the only player to win two championships at the same location, along with Jack Nicholas and Julie Inkster.

Number in the official world golf rankings. The 18-year-old broke on Sunday after Fitzpatrick had already had a strong season at the big championships. The Englishman had previously finished T14 at the Masters in April and T5 at the PGA Championships last month.

However, this was not an easy path for Fitzpatrick, and his final round at The Country Club was a perfect attachment to this. Whether he admits it or not, doubt had to come because he had missed opportunities to win events for years.

Fitzpatrick is set to make his debut as a fully-retrieved player by 2022. It became clear this week that the name of the Fitzpatrick game was consistent. While the others came out with significantly fewer rounds at the start of the match, he scored 70 runs in 2 under-70s across the first 36 holes on Friday, recording a second 68 on the day before moving to take the co-lead.

Fitzpatrick was up and down all nine Sundays ahead, and he seemed to be sitting outside a cup presentation again to start behind two bogeys.

Following a minor bug in the Bar-410, there was an indescribable three-boot in the brief Bar-311. A rapid three-stroke swing such as Jalatoris neck breathing may have destabilized Fitzpatrick. A life filled with close calls may have added another, but instead of fading, Fitzpatrick began to prosper.

In Bar-4 13 a stressful Birdie converted Fitzpatrick again with Jalatoris into a share of the under-5 presence. After two holes, after missing the fairway, Fitzpatrick struck one of the best iron shots of the day, setting a bird’s eye view on the long Bar-4 15. With Jalatoris in the bogey, Fitzpatrick walked into his third and took a two-stroke lead shortly after.

Although Jaladoris and Scheffler both pulled together after Birdie stretched, Fitzpatrick did not give up.

After trading with Zalatoris on the accessible 17th, Fitzpatrick made the same mistake you could not make when you went to the 72nd hole one-stroke edge and found the Fairway bunker from the tee. He picked it up on the cheek and pursued the wrong shot with a career-defining shot in the green that set his US Open win. Fitzpatrick missed the 18-foot birdie pudding, but Jalatoris missed a similar 14-foot puddle with a hair.

“If there’s one shot I’ve struggled with this year, it’s a fair bunker shot if I do not want to,” Fitzpatrick said of his approach into the 72nd hole. “I think [caddie] Billy [Foster] Just took charge. This is also one of the best shots I have ever scored. When I saw it coming out of the sand, I felt the strike, and I could not be happier. “

The US Open is often rightly described as the “toughest test of the game of golf”. Most people believe that this will happen due to conditions. They certainly play a role, but the mental challenge posed by the USGA far outweighs them. Competing in the US Open is truly a rollercoaster of emotions, and one small mistake can cause one to eventually fall.

Fitzpatrick had a fair share of his mistakes on Sunday, but he picked up punches like a champion. In the process, he brushed off Monique, who had been in the saddle for a long time, calmed his doubts and ruled the game with the National Championship trophy.

“No words,” Fitzpatrick said after lifting the trophy. “This is what you dream of. This is something I have worked so hard for – for so long – it’s a big monkey trying to hit my back. [in the United States]. That’s what everyone was talking about. There is nothing better than to do it better for my first success. “

Here is the breakdown of the rest of the Leaderboard at the 2022 US Open

T2. Will Saladoris and Scotty Scheffler (-5): After all, it’s an inch game, and when both Jalatoris and Scheffler missed bird chances in the 72nd hole, Fitzpatrick became your US Open champion. It was Jaladoris’ brave attempt to create a bogey in Bar-4 15 hours and give him two more realistic chances with a bird on the 16th. It may not be so, but I would not be shocked. First win – like Fitzpatrick – in a major championship he now has three runner-up results in nine appearances and is in the top 10 of the seven majors he has played over the weekend.

“Will is a really talented player. He’s mentally strong. That’s why he performs so well,” said his good friend Scheffler. “This is what will happen in the last two majors he’s pitched against the best champions in Fitzgerald and Justin Thomas. This is one of the deals that will keep you knocking on the door. He’s sure he’s going to win one of these when I’m done saying it all.”

4. Hidegi Matsuyama (-3): The 65-year-old 5-year-old, the lower round of the day, pushed the former Masters champion into the competition when he was thinking after most of the week. It was a different year for Matsuyama because he struggled with injury, was disqualified and now finished in the top five in a major championship. “Yeah, to be honest, I don’t think this is my 100% performance, but it boosts my confidence,” Matsuyama said. “So, I’ll try my best and try to combine this momentum with my next game and I will be ready for it.”

T5. Colin Morikova and Rory McIlroy (-2): If he had told Morikawa earlier in the week that he would have signed three rounds in the 60s, he would have taken a heartbeat. Unfortunately, 77 runs in the third round – his worst score in a major championship – shattered his US Open aspirations. However, the game he played at The Country Club marked another strong end to a big match. Of the 11 major appearances, the 25-year-old has had two wins, two to-five results and another top-10 result to a good extent. He now has his eyes on St. Andrews for The Open Championship, where he hopes to successfully defend his title.

“I do not know if I’ve found anything. I think it taught me to go play golf,” Morikova said, insisting that for the majority of the championship his game was not where he wanted it to be. “This year has been more focused on trying to hit that cut and trying to be more perfect, that’s me, but go out and play. Things will be tough, the ball is not going to get where you want to go, but find it.”

McIlroy, meanwhile, was coming in below 4 for the weekend, but trailed to the captains as he had to reduce his mistakes on Sunday to 73 to shoot him in the third round. Instead, she hit the first 11 holes in 1 over, and two birdies were not enough to put him in contention. Rory, who has been playing his best golf for many years, is still looking forward to his first major championship since 2014.
