‘Brothers as a team’ Fitzpatrick, as a team with his brother at the Zurich Classic

 The brothers team up and challenge to win the PGA Tour.

Matthew Fitzpatrick (England), who won overtime at the RBC Heritage, will team up with his brother Alex in the Zurich Classic (total prize money of $8.6 million), the only team event on the PGA Tour.

The tournament, which will be held at TPC Louisiana (par 72) in Evandale, Louisiana, USA, from the 21st (Korean time) has been changed to a team game since 2017. The 1st and 3rd rounds are played in a best-ball style four-ball game, in which players each hit with their own balls and get a good result as a team score. If they advance to the finals with a tie for 33rd place and win, the two will each take $1,548,000 in prize money.

Matthew Fitzpatrick, born in 1994, stood out by lifting trophies in various competitions since his amateur days. In 2013, he won the US Amateur Championship and was the only amateur to pass the cut at the Open Championship in a major.

Turning professional in 2014, Matthew made his European debut. He first won the British Masters in 2015 and has won seven career victories, including two DP World Tour championships.

Matthew, who has been active in Europe and the PGA Tour at the same time, has increased PGA Tour activities from the 2020-2021 season. He won his first U.S. Open last year and his second on the PGA Tour at the RBC Heritage. It is currently ranked 8th in the world.

His younger brother, Alex, who is two years younger, is also a golfer. However, last year’s Valspar Championship was the only one to step on the PGA Tour stage. This is his second appearance, and thanks to his brother who is doing well, a small dream has come true.

During his amateur days, he was a skilled player enough to represent the Walker Cup, an amateur golf competition between the United States and England in 2019 and 2021, but he has yet to show any clear skills on his professional stage. Last year, he competed in 5 tournaments on the PGA Tour of Canada, passed the cut 3 times, but failed to win.

Although he lags behind his older brother in terms of skill on the professional stage, he has been a strong supporter of his older brother since his junior days.

He has the power to win the 2013 US Amateur Championship as a caddy for his older brother.

Matthew said, “I don’t know how much I can get,” and looked forward to the first tee shot with his brother, saying, “It’s something I’ve always wanted to try and experience.”

It was four years before his brother competed with a team at the Zurich Classic. Brothers Brooks and Chase Koepka competed in the 2019 event.

In this tournament,먹튀검증 Kim Si-woo (28) and Kim Joo-hyung (21), who have won the PGA Tour this season, will compete as a team.

The two produced a famous scene that they left together at last year’s Presidents Cup. In the four-ball match held on the third day of the tournament, Kim Joo-hyung teamed up with Kim Si-woo and won a one-hole victory over Patrick Cantley-Zander Shopley (USA). At that time, Kim Joo-hyung finished the match by putting a 3m birdie putt in the last hole 18 (par 4).

Lim Seong-jae (25) paired up with Keith Mitchell (USA) and An Byeong-hun (32) Kim Seong-hyun (25) to challenge for the championship.
