(AP) Matt Fitzpatrick has won the U.S. Amateur, beating Oliver Goss 4 and 3 in the 36-hole final on Sunday to become the first English champion of the tournament since 1911.


Fitzpatrick won when Goss missed a par putt on No. 15 at The Country Club. The event came on the 100th anniversary of local caddie Francis Ouimet's landmark U.S. Open victory over British pros Harry Vardon and Ted Ray.


With the victory, Fitzpatrick earns an exemption for the U.S. Open and British Open and a likely invitation to the Masters. Fitzpatrick was the low amateur at the British Open.


Fitzpatrick, who will be a freshman at Northwestern this fall, had 14-year-old brother Alex as his caddie. Goss used fellow Australian and semifinal opponent Brady Watt.
