The Outlook

It’s been an uncharacteristically modest year for Fitzpatrick so far. After winning on the European Tour in each of the last three campaigns, he’s currently 0-for-2018 with just a single top 10 in the past six months. While I do believe he’ll turn things around and start trending in the right direction before year’s end, I don’t think he’ll be able to piece it all together to make a run this week.
