BROOKLINE (AP) — Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick took a page out of Francis Ouimet’s book and advanced to the finals of the U.S. Amateur at The Country Club.
With his 14-year-old brother on his bag and opponent Corey Conners sitting in the famous Vardon bunker along the 17th fairway, Fitzpatrick knocked his approach to 20 feet, then sank the birdie putt to win 2-and-1 on Saturday. He’ll play in the 36-hole final against Oliver Goss, who beat fellow Australian Brady Watt 2-up in the other semifinal.
