Forget about making the Ryder Cup team, Matt Fitzpatrick won a year's supply of beer in a long drive contest!
Just a guess, but your Sunday probably wasn't as good as Matt Fitzpatrick's. The rising star from England shot 69 at the Czech Masters to move up to fifth place and in the process, earned a year's supply of beer by winning the tournament's long drive contest.
