Matt Fitzpatrick shot a bogey-free Sunday round of 2-under 69 to claim a three-shot victory at the Andalucía Masters.

The 27-year old Englishman finished his final day at the famed Valderrama Golf Club with 16 pars and two birdies en route to 6-under par, three clear of Sebastian Soderberg (70) and Min Woo Lee (70).

The win was Fitzpatrick’s seventh of his still-young European Tour career, and second in 10 months (DP World Tour Championship, Dec. 2020).

The Northwestern University product earned €489,750 while picking up 30 world-ranking points to move to 25th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
