Sheffield’s Matthew Fitzpatrick will say goodbye to Hallamshire Golf Club this week until Christmas at least as he heads to Northwestern University in Chicago to continue his golf education.

Fitzpatrick, aged 18, will begin a scholarship at the same university as former world No 1 Luke Donald fresh from his success in the US Amateur championship, but not before taking on the Americans again as part of the Great Britain & Ireland Walker Cup team in New York.
