It was a dramatic win for Matt Fitzpatrick claiming victory over Jordan Spieth at the RBC Heritage.

The pair finished tied at 17-under-par and would head back out for a nail-biting sudden death playoff. Jordan Spieth had two opportunities to claim victory but burned the edge of the hole with both attempts. 

This gave the man from Sheffield another chance to take advantage of Spieth not being able to close it out. 

Fitzpatrick had been impressive all week from tee to green with 62% fairways hit and 68% of greens hit in regulation, averaging 1.5 putts with every green in regulation hit.

• RBC Heritage – prize money in full

• Playing Augusta – Your questions answered!  

With a perfect tee shot down the 18th fairway Fitzpatrick was in prime position to knock his 9-iron close. For a moment it looked like his ball was going to drop in the hole, but it left him the easiest of birdie putts, which was enough to claim the title. With the win, Fitzpatrick became the first Englishman to win the tournament since Sir Nick Faldo in 1984. 

This win takes Matt Fitzpatrick to his highest world ranking to date, as he’s now ranked world No.8. 

One thing that didn’t let Matt Fitzpatrick down was what he had in the bag. Here’s what the new RBC Heritage winner had in the bag.
