Frederik Kjettrup goes back-to-back, wins ATB Classic for second victory on PGA TOUR Americas

SHERWOOD PARK, Alberta – Frederik Kjettrup won the 2024 ATB Classic, becoming the first player since 2012 to win his first two starts on his member Tour. Kjettrup turned in a 3-under final round to finish the tournament 16-under to capture his second consecutive win. Tommy Cocha and John Keefer finished T2 at 13-under.

With the win, Kjettrup takes hold of the No. 1 spot in the Fortinet Cup Points List. Matthew Anderson (No. 2), Clay Feagler (No. 3), Harry Hillier (No. 4) and José de Jesús Rodríguez (No. 5), round out the top-five.

Kjettrup claimed his first win as a professional in his PGA TOUR Americas debut at The Beachlands Victoria Open presented by Times Colonist. Kjettrup made 22 birdies over the course of four rounds at Northern Bear Golf Club, tied for the second most in the field on his way to his second consecutive win. Kjettrup attributed his success to the work he’s put in leading up to this point.

“I think just being thrown into the fire,” Kjettrup said. “The more you do it, the better you get there. At the end of the day, it’s all that you’re playing for. It’s what you do on the putting green back home when you’re 10 years old, you’re like 10‑footer to win the tournament. It’s kind of all been leading to this point and it’s just nice to perform well in the spotlight.”

Kjettrup also gave credit to the work he’s spent on the mental side of his game.

“I’ve worked a lot on my mental game over the last couple years,” Kjettrup said. “I used to be a lot in the past and in the future. If I played really good I would get too ahead of myself, which is no good, and obviously if I was playing bad, I would be too in the past with my mistakes … Step one is noticing when you start to drift. When you start noticing that you just bring yourself back and that’s just kind of a reset.

Kjettrup, a native of Denmark, spent four seasons at Florida State University and earned PGA TOUR Americas membership after finishing No. 8 in the 2024 PGA TOUR University Ranking. During his collegiate career, Kjettrup was a three-time individual champion (2022 All-American Intercollegiate, 2023 Watersound Invitational, 2024 ACC Championship) and was named an All-American three times.

Kjettrup also represented Denmark numerous times in his amateur career, most notably at the European Amateur Team Championship for four consecutive years (2020-23). Kjettrup was also a two-time participant in the Arnold Palmer Cup (2022, 2023), representing the international team.
