British Weekend Recap: Matt Fitzpatrick and Charley Hull gave it all at the European and LPGA Tour.

The European and LPGA Tour are officially over. The English golfers fought against all odds and did very well. Time to rest and set the New Year’s goals.

PGA Tour: RSM Classic

The RSM Classic took place in Georgia, at the Sea Island Seaside Course. The tournament ended on Sunday, 21st of November 2021. The RSM is part of the PGA Tour in the season 2022. All players competing for a total prize money of 7,2 Mio. US-Dollar.

Justin Rose (T12)

As it was mentioned in the previews, the appearance of European Tour players in the PGA event is less notorious that in the previous tournaments. Justin Rose started off strong, shooting a first round of 5-under par at the RMS Classic.

Rose completed a second day free of bogeys, but two birdies were not enough to climb in the leaderboard as much as he expected. After the third round, Justin Rose fell some positions. However, that did not stop the Englishman to give it all during the last day, when Rose made a comeback with 5-under par to finish T12.

Aaron Rai (T16)

Aaron Rai played four consistent rounds of (68-67-68-68) for a tota of 11-under par, only one stroke behind Justin Rose. Nevertheless, golf is the way it is, and one shot makes a big difference. Rai finished the RMS Classic in a T16 position.

David Skinns (T29)

Our third best golfer from England was David Skinns. Skinns began with a top free-bogey round of 6-under par, and followed up with a good second day of 3-under par. The last two rounds did not come along well and Skinns dropped some positions in the leaderboard. The Englishman finished T29 with a total of -8.

Luke Donald and Callum Tarren did not make the cut last weekend. They have one last opportunity to make up for it next weekend at the Hero World Challenge, hosted by Tiger Woods.

LPGA Tour: CME Group Tour Championship

The LPGA is over! The CME Group Tour Championship meant the end of the season for the women. Tiburon Golf Club – Gold Course hosted the last event of the LPGA calendar for the year.

Charley Hull (T15)

Our English golfers kept the excitement throughout the weekend. When the hard work was not showing up as it should, Charley Hull made a 180 degree turn. Hull was even-par after the second round, but giving up was never an option. The English lady re-emerged to finish T15 with an incredible last round of 8-under par, eagle included. Now, it is time to have some rest and set the goals for the upcoming year. “Just sometimes struggle in my rounds, but, yeah, good form going on to next year.” – Hull explains.

Georgia Hall (T24)

On the other hand, Georgia Hall struggled to save the pars. Hall finished T24 with a total of 10-under par. Hall sinked some middle-long putts for birdies, but yet that was not enough to catch up with the top leaderboard. From the amount of bogeys, her long game was not at its finest, and the English golfer found some difficulties to make up & down successfully. The season reached its end, and it is time to reconnect from the scratch to a better season next year.

It’s a wrap! The European Tour celebrated the Race to Dubai Grand Final at the georgeous golf course of Jumeirah Golf Estates – Earth Course, in Dubai. This time, only the Top 50 of the Race to Dubai Rankings competed at the Final.

Matt Fitzpatrick (T2)

The Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick finished T2, while Collin Morikawa made history becoming the first American to win the European Tour’s season-long contest. Fitzpatrick tied the last round with Morikawa with a round of 6-under par. Unlucky to the Englishman, that was not enough to defend Champion, and Fitzpatrick stayed 3 shots behind the leader at the end. ” I was really pleased with the way I played and it was nice to make some putts compared to the first couple days.” – Fitzpatrick explains.

Ian Poulter (T6)

Next from England on the leaderboard was Ian Poulter. With a total of 12-under par, Poulter finished T6, only 5 shots from the leader. After an opening round of 1-over par, the English golfer caught up the pace and played some good consistent golf during the last three days.

Other English players within Top 20

Paul Casey and Sam Horsfield tied at T9 with a total of 11-under par. Neither one of them had it easy last weekend, but they fought like warriors. Nevertheless, Casey played very consistent, while Horsfield dropped some positions after the last day. Marcus Armitage and Tyrrell Hatton struggled to hole in more putts, and finished T16 with a total of 9-under par.
