The confidence of youth
How nice it was to see the British Masters return to our TV screens over the weekend. More than 57,000 spectators attended the event over the four days, and the crowds were treated to some top-class golf. If the numbers through the gates were impressive, how about the tournament winner? Matt Fitzpatrick, 21, completed a wire-to-wire victory in the kind of manner you'd expect from a player with twice the experience. He showed composure beyond his years, and two areas of his game stood out, particularly during the final round.
Firstly, his accuracy off the tee; he was by no means the longest, but he would prove true the old adage 'Driving is for show, putting is for dough'. In finding the fairway more often than not he let other areas of his game do the talking. He would have been forgiven for succumbing to the nerves down the stretch but time after time he holed clutch putts, and at pace, the ball hitting the back of the cup with authority.
