Matt Fitzpatrick Twitter Reacts

Matt Fitzpatrick is the US Open champion – and it’s fair to say he’s proving a popular winner.

The 27-year-old from Sheffield won his first major at the Country Club, the scene of his US Amateur victory nine years ago.

Since the winning putt rolled in, tributes have been pouring in from across the world of golf and beyond.

His boyhood club Sheffield United posted a message of support, and even Prime Minister Boris Johnson got in on the act.

And legendary Blades manager Neil Warnock had his say too.

Fitzpatrick’s win meant he became only the second man to win the US Amateur and US Open at the same course, after Jack Nicklaus.

He also netted $3.15 million – the biggest payout in major history.
