US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick jokes the Simpsons predicted his historic win

US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick has joked that the famous cartoon show The Simpsons predicted his historic win at Brookline. The hit American series has a knack for allegedly predicting some of the world’s most historic events, and Fitzpatrick has added his victory to the list.

With the TV show renowned for predicting key events throughout history, there is no doubt the word historic is the right word to describe Fitzpatrick’s triumph on a course that means so much. As a result, the Sheffield star competed and won the US Open on the exact same course in which he had won the US Amateur title just nine years before.

The story is a remarkable one, and is undoubtedly set to be etched into the golfing history books for years to come. Fitzpatrick is an avid fan of Sheffield United and following the final, compared his ‘underdog’ to the efforts of his beloved Blades.

He said: “I feel like I'm the same deal [as Sheffield United] – not expected to do well, not expected to succeed.I've won a major today. I feel like I certainly worked hard for it and that's kind of where I've grown up from, that's the mentality of everyone around there.

"It's certainly like an underdog mentality, and you work for what you get." The English star began the final round at Brookline tied for the lead, but despite the pressures carding a hugely impressive two-under-par 68 to see him move to six-under for the tournament, enough to see off playing partner Zalatoris and Masters champion Scheffler.
