Con­sis­tent Hat­ton claims an­other top 10 fin­ish on PGA Tour

Windsor & Eton Express - - Sport -

There was an­other top 10 fin­ish at a PGA Tour event for Tyrrell Hat­ton this week­end with the Marlow player fin­ish­ing tied for fourth at the Rocket Mort­gage Clas­sic in Detroit.

While not quite in the mix for the ti­tle, Hat­ton again did well enough to fin­ish com­fort­ably in the top 10 on 16un­der par, along­side his com­pa­triot Danny Wil­lett, Cana­dian Adam Hadwin and Amer­i­can Ryan Ar­mour. Hat­ton now has five top 10 fin­ishes in his last six PGA Tour events.

Amer­i­can Matthew Wolff held the overnight lead go­ing into the fi­nal day, but a seven-un­der par fi­nal round from the big-hit­ting, newly bulked-up Amer­i­can, Bryson DeCham­beau, saw him steam through for vic­tory by three­shots. Af­ter­wards he said it showed there was ‘an­other way’ to win tour­na­ments af­ter hav­ing pur­posely put on 45lbs of weight in nine months to give him ex­tra yardage from the tee. Amer­i­can Kevin Kis­ner was third on 18un­der par, two shots be­hind Wolff and five be­hind DeCham­beau. Hat­ton fin­ished seven shots off the event win­ner.

Hat­ton’s form since the turn of the year has been ex­em­plary. In one of his first tour­na­ment’s since re­turn­ing from wrist surgery over the win­ter, Hat­ton won the Arnold Palmer In­vi­ta­tional, his first PGA Tour suc­cess. The tour was tem­po­rar­ily sus­pended be­cause of the coronaviru­s pan­demic but the Marlow player re­turned to tie for third at the RBC Her­itage event in South Carolina last month, hav­ing held the joint overnight lead head­ing into the fi­nal day’s play. Be­fore un­der­go­ing surgery he signed off on his 2019 sea­son with a dra­matic win in the Turk­ish Air­lines Open, win­ning a play-off for his fourth Euro­pean ti­tle.
