His two wins at the DP Entire world Tour Championship in 2016 and 2020, together with his runner-up finish in 2021, showed that he could compete with – and conquer – the most effective.
Victory at Brookline showed he could do it on the grandest phase under the greatest of pressure.
Taking part in with and hitting it previous the monster driver that is Dustin Johnson for the opening two times raised eyebrows, as Fitzpatrick’s perform on bettering his swing speed experienced put him into the elite group in phrases of length off the tee.
Coupled with his currently elite ball-striking, Fitzpatrick proved he now experienced the total offer.
Following his acquire at Brookline, Fitzpatrick reported minimal would modify in phrases of his lifetime.
It would seem all those words were proper as he continued to churn out success with a few of leading-10s, and a leading-25 finish at the Open.
The only factor lacking considering that victory at Brookline has been a win, but he can put that appropriate this week.

Gone are the days that Fitzpatrick can be backed at 25/1 or even bigger for gatherings, but the 11/1 nonetheless helps make charm.
McIlroy is the favorite and it is comprehensible why the bookmakers have him chalked up at 7/2, as he is by some length the most effective participant in the discipline. As a two-time winner of the party, he also has an excellent training course history.
But the cost makes no attractiveness whatsoever as you would drop cash in the each individual-way marketplace if he were to end in the leading 8 without having securing victory.
We will toss a second dart at the board in the form of Min Woo Lee at 33/1.
The Australian has been knocking on the door by the autumn with prime-10 finishes at the Open de Espana, Andalucia Masters and Nedbank Golfing Obstacle.
His just one visual appearance at the Earth Study course resulted in a tied-16th complete in 2021. It is a observe that sets up perfectly for Lee who is sneaky extended off the tee and superb with his iron perform.
If Lee can stay away from the slow start that hurt him 12 months back, he appears an fantastic every single-way selection.
