Dylan Ashley Frittelli (born 5 June 1990) is a South African professional golfer. He currently plays on the PGA Tour where he won the John Deere Classic in 2019. He previously played on the European Tour where he won twice in 2017, the Lyoness Open and the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open.
Frittelli turned professional after the 2012 NCAA Championship and played on the European Tour via sponsors exemptions for the rest of the year. He started 2013 with a second-place finish in the Telkom PGA Championship behind Jaco van Zyl. He played most of the year on the Challenge Tour, winning his first tour event at the Kärnten Golf Open in June.
Frittelli’s performances in early 2013 lifted him into the world top-300 but he then had two years of poor performances, dropping to 926 in the world rankings. He showed a return to form when losing a playoff for the Australian PGA Championship in late 2015. 2016 was a successful year with second place in the Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open, a tie for second in the Tayto Northern Ireland Open and then a second win on the Challenge Tour in the Rolex Trophy. He finished 8th in the Race to Oman rankings to earn a place on the 2017 European Tour.
In 2017 a tie for second place in the Eye of Africa PGA Championship and a playoff defeat in the Volvo China Open lifted Frittelli into the world top-100 for the first time. In June he won his first European Tour event, the Lyoness Open. At the end of the season he was runner-up in the Turkish Airlines Open and tied for 4th in the end-of-season DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, both Rolex Series events. He finished 19th in the Race to Dubai.
Frittelli won the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open in December 2017 beating Arjun Atwal at the first hole of a playoff.
In 2018, Frittelli played some PGA Tour events because of sponsor’s exemptions and his world ranking. He earned enough points to qualify for the Web.com Tour Finals. At the Web.com Tour Finals, he secured his PGA Tour card for the 2018–19 season.
Fritelli won the John Deere Classic in July 2019 by shooting 21-under par. It was his maiden PGA Tour victory and qualified him for the 2019 Open Championship in Northern Ireland. Source
