Fitzpatrick hopes for better start, more action at Ryder Cup

  Fitzpatrick hopes for better start, more action at Ryder Cup SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — Matt Fitzpatrick's Ryder Cup debut wasn't great. He lost. Europe lost. And he never really felt like he played any real golf. After making his first team for the 2016 matches at Hazeltine, then missing Europe's win in Paris two years later, the 27-year-old Englishman is back and looking for a much different result this time. While he'd be the last to make lineup suggestions to captain Padraig Harrington, Fitzpatrick said he never got into the flow in Hazeltine because the only match he played over the first two days was when he paired with Henrik Stenson in foursomes against Brooks Koepka and Brandt Snedeker. The Europeans lost, 3 and 2.

UK-based Secret Cinema stages immersive shows that bring to life iconic movies and TV adaptations with in-person experiences. Created by Fabien Riggall in 2007, the company transforms audiences into characters in richly imagined worlds. From grassroots film screenings in abandoned London buildings, to outdoor festivals and large scale productions, Secret Cinema experiences fuse music, art, theater and dance, creating social encounters, adventures and discoveries. The company has had a series of successful events in the UK, several of which have made a dent in the UK box office chart, including the 2019 Casino Royale run which grossed more than $10M. Last year, it furthered its international expansion, partnering with Netflix to deliver Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience.
