ORLANDO, Florida – Bettinardi Golf Tour Staff Professionals had an incredibly successful weekend, earning wins in Dubai on the European Tour and Naples on the PGA TOUR.
Six-time European Tour champion Matthew Fitzpatrick secured a win at the DP World Tour Championship this weekend, less than one week after signing with Bettinardi Golf, the leader in precision-milled putters and inventor of one-piece technology. The 26-year-old Englishman came out on top after having four rounds in the 60s, trusting his DASS(Double Aged Stainless Steel) BB1 Flow Tour Dept., which he designed directly with Robert and Sam Bettinardi. Matthew ranked first in strokes gained putting with 22 birdies to finish 15 under par for the event.
His victory over the weekend brought his Official World Ranking to #16, and place him second overall on the European Tour’s season-long Race to Dubai points list. Additionally, his putting success has put him fourth overall in Putts per GIR on the Euro Tour.
“Watching Matthew this weekend was very full circle for Bettinardi Golf,” said Founder Robert Bettinardi. “He has worked so hard with our team to make his perfect putter that requires absolute precision and feel when Matt is on the greens. This weekend showed our promise to Matthew and the world Bettinardi Golf has the technology, experience and attention to detail to secure a championship on the biggest stages in golf.”
Fitzpatrick signed with Bettinardi on Wednesday, having worked directly with Robert and Sam over the last few years to perfect his
putter to his specific requests. His putter features a prototype Roll Control Face, Bettinardi’s latest face milling technology, which Matthew saw through rigorous testing before it was released to the general public in 2020.
“To have Fitzpatrick win this week we officially signed him is more than luck,” Executive Vice President Sam Bettinardi said. “Winning such a big tournament with a Bettinardi in his hands bolsters his confidence to the highest level. It is so rewarding, especially for the engineers and Tour Dept. staff that have helped him along the way to see their hard work come to fruition.”
Additionally, Matt Kuchar earned his third QBE Shootout title this weekend, breaking several records for the tournament. Gaming his Tour Dept. KM-1 Armlock putter which he designed directly with Robert, the 42-year-old Tour Pro and his partner Harris English finished 37 under par, breaking their own record of -34 when they won in 2013.
“Time and time again Matt impresses us with prowess on the greens,” Sam Bettinardi said. “Matt’s history with Bettinardi and his success on Tour is an undeniable correlation. Thirty-seven under par is all the proof you need.”
