Matt Fitzpatrick has two main coaches in his team: Mike Walker and Pete Cowen take care of his swing.

Cowen, who also hails from Fitzpatrick’s hometown of Sheffield, is one of the best-known coaches in the game and has worked with some of the best players in the world, including Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Brooks Koepka and Lee Westwood.

He had a career as a pro in the 1970s and 1980s, winning the Zambia Open, before moving into coaching.

Walker, meanwhile, has worked with Fitzpatrick for several years and the 28-year-old hails him as having helped him become one of the most consistent players in the world.

According to Fitzpatrick’s website, ‘Matt knows the importance of surrounding himself with a world-class team’, which has allowed him to win multiple titles on both sides of the Atlantic.

As well as having the services of legendary caddie Billy Foster, Matt Fitzpatrick also has two other coaches. Matt Roberts is his strength and conditioning coach, while Steve Robinson is Fitzpatrick’s performance coach.
