After Winning $3,600,000, Matt Fitzpatrick Reveals a Bitter Sweet Tiger Woods Memory of His Childhood At RBC Heritage

Matt Fitzpatrick has showcased his commendable skills to the golf world yet again with his recent RBC Heritage victory. Not only has he won millions of hearts with his performance, but has also become the second Englishman to ever claim the title after Sir Nick Faldo!

However, despite his unforgettable achievement, the PGA Tour pro has great respect for several other professionals on the tour, especially Tiger Woods. In fact, during his post-game interview, the golfer revealed an interesting story involving the GOAT and the prestigious RBC Heritage tournament.

Fitzpatrick, 28, has achieved quite a lot at a pretty young age. With a solid career on both the European tour and the PGA Tour, the golfer has set several records in the past few years. Not to forget, the player won his first tournament as a pro at the 2015 British Masters, followed by his 2022 U.S. Open victory.

Notably, the athlete found his interest in the game at a very young age. And according to his statements, golf legend Tiger Woods always had an enormous impact on him during his childhood. While talking about his recent victory at the highly valued event, Fitzpatrick revealed how he used to attend the tournament with his old man. And the only person he used to look for would be Tiger Woods.

“I always remember coming here and saying to my dad, is Tiger going to be in it here, and my dad is like, no, Tiger is not playing this week,” he recalled. “I was always looking for Tiger.” And it was true since Woods hasn’t really appeared at the RBC Heritage a lot in his career. In fact, fans might only remember his presence on the field back in 1998.
