European Tour rookie Matthew Fitzpatrick had quite the weekend. The 21-year-old former U.S. Amateur champion went wire-to-wire to capture his first professional victory at the British Masters at Woburn Golf Club.
Fitzpatrick had this to say about his accomplishment, “I honestly did not think I was going to win this year. A wire-to-wire victory is unbelievable for me, I really feel that is an amazing achievement. I dreamt of doing it but I never thought I would be good enough.”
The win also earned Fitz a check worth a whopping €671,550 ($763,912), a hefty sum for a college-age kid — or anyone, for that matter.
So how did young Matthew celebrate his “amazing achievement” that made him rich beyond belief?
According to the European Tour, he got a Subway sandwich. In Matthew’s defense, he was in his home country of England, a nation notorious for their horrendous food.
