The 21-year-old, who entered the ultimate round five shots obvious but saw his lead cut to 2 in the turn, would be a type of consistency within the four days because he taken only his second European Tour title at Bro Hof Slott Club.
Fitzpatrick, rated 45 on the planet, sealed the crown having a final-round 71 to get at 16-under-componen overall, and along the way greatly boosted his likelihood of a Ryder Cup debut within the fall.
“It had been an excellent final day for me personally and that i were able to keep my lead fairly well and obtain the win. I felt like today was the round were I’d be underneath the most pressure,” Fitzpatrick stated, because he grew to become the youngest champion from the Nordea Masters.
“I had been keeping track of where I desired to get at however i only agreed to be taking one hole at any given time and that i am zone directly into my very own game, I did not understand what happening around me 50 % of time.
“I am millions of miles in front of schedule. It has been a difficult past couple of days and out of the blue you switch up and get victory.Inch
The previous US Amateur champion, who finished tied seventh in the Masters in Augusta in April, transported his good form in to the Swedish capital to shut out victory in front of Dane Lasse Jensen in second. Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts was third, four off Fitzpatrick.
Henrik Stenson, the planet number six, was tied 4th with fellow Swede Bjorn Hellgren.
