Matthew Fitzpatrick will aim to be the first player to win three consecutive Omega European Masters titles when he returns to Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club on August 29 – September 1, 2019.
Last season the Englishman equaled a 40-year record when he became the first player since the legendary Seve Ballesteros in 1978 to defend his title in Crans Montana.
Back to back Omega European Masters titles took the 24 year old’s tally to five European Tour wins, with his previous triumphs including the prestigious season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, in 2016.
The former Amateur World Number One also qualified for his first Ryder Cup in 2016, and he got his 2019 campaign off to a great start with a second place finish at the Honma Hong Kong Open presented by Amundi.
The Sheffield native adds to the impressive list of Ryder Cup players who have already signed up for this year’s tournament including four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy, 2017 Masters Tournament winner Sergio Garcia and the 2017 European Number One Tommy Fleetwood.
