Who is Alex Fitzpatrick's girlfriend? Meet talented golfer Rachel Kuehn

Alex Fitzpatrick might be the lesser known of the Fitzpatrick brothers when it comes to the world of professional golf, but the youngster can most certainly play... and so too can his girlfriend Rachel Kuehn. 

Alex decided to turn professional in June 2022 but it took him until day three of the the 151st Open Championship to fully announce himself as one to watch he charged through the pack and into the top 10 on the leaderboard thanks to a blistering 6-under 65. 

That was just two shots shy of Jon Rahm, who carded the lowest-ever Open round at Royal Liverpool of 8-under 63 on the same day. 

Sheffield-born Alex, 24, first burst on to our television screens at the 2019 Walker Cup, which was also staged at Royal Liverpool.

The GB & Ireland team unfortunately went down 15.5-10.5 that week.

Alex then also competed in the 2021 contest at Seminole in the United States, but his side once against lost 14-12. 

A year later, he made his pro debut on the DP World Tour at the Irish Open but he would go on to miss the cut.

But this is not why you are here. You want to know who his girlfriend is. 

Who is Alex Fitzpatrick's girlfriend? Meet Rachel Kuehn

Alex is currently dating American Rachel Kuehn, 22, who is a top amateur golfer who represented the USA at the 2022 World Amateur Team Championships.

Rachel is currently ranked fifth in the Women's Amateur Golf Rankings.

She has also won Wake Forest Women's Golf Player of the Year in consecutive years.

Alex has been seen cheering Rachel on at a number of leading amateur tournaments such as at Westchester in 2021 

Rachel's mother, Brenda, also had an accomplished amateur career and she twice claimed medallist honours in the US Women's Mid Amateur in 1995 and 1996.

Brenda also played in the US Women's Amateur 16 times, as well as in the US Women's Open nine times.

On top of that, Brenda clinched the winning point in the 1998 Curtis Cup. 

Rather memorably for Rachel, Brenda made headline news at the 2001 US Women's Open as she was playing while eight months pregnant with Rachel.

Brenda felt a contraction while hitting her tee shot down the 11th hole in the first round, and then a week later she delivered Rachel. 

Fast forward to now, and Rachel is now one of the best ladies amateur golfers in the world.

She made her LPGA Tour debut at the 2023 Amundi Evian Championship. 

After shooting a 65 on day three of the 151st Open Championship, Alex was was quizzed by the media as to who he has most rivalry with - his brother and former US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick, or his girlfriend Rachel. 

Alex was left in doubt it was the latter. "Definitely the girlfriend, yeah, 100 percent, " said Alex with a smile. 

"Lots of chipping comps, lots of putting comps. She claims she wins all the time, but she knows the truth."

They have a lot of banter, too. "Lots of that, yeah. But you know, she's an amazing player. She has her own game, and like I said, she's preparing for the Evian next week."
