Briton Matt Fitzpatrick on Sunday won the United States Open, the first major golf championship of his career.

He finished six under par, one shot ahead of Americans Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler, world No. 1.

Fitzpatrick, 27 years old and No. 18 in the world rankings, managed to maintain his advantage of a shot on the last hole, narrowly avoiding a playoff against Zalatoris at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.
