HAT­TON’S AMAZ­ING STORY

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Play Your Best -

Not only did Tyrell Hat­ton cre­ate his­tory by winning the Ital­ian Open, he did it with a birdie on the last to se­cure his sec­ond con­sec­u­tive vic­tory on the Euro­pean Tour.

The English­man won the Alfred Dun­hill Links Cham­pi­onship the week be­fore and with the con­fi­dence still flow­ing in him, he pro­duced a sub­lime fi­nal round per­for­mance with six birdies, that in­cluded five on the back nine for a flaw­less 65 on Sun­day to win his first Rolex Se­ries event.

When Hat­ton was on the 18th green, the tour­na­ment seemed des­tined to head for a play­off as club­house lead­ers Ross Fisher and Ki­radech Aphibarn­rat were tied with him on 20-un­der-par.

His 15-footer en­sured that it was his time at Monza, by just one stroke.
