Tyrrell Hatton Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Mon 24 Jun 2024

After three and a half years without an individual title, Tyrrell Hatton romped to victory at LIV Golf Nashville, shooting a final round 65 for a six shot win over fellow Englishman Sam Horsfield

It represents the largest winning margin of the 11 victories in Hatton’s career. More important, it ends a drought that had the 32-year-old Englishman wondering if he would ever return to the winner’s circle.

"Having not won for so long, you wonder if you’d be able to do it again in some way," said Hatton, who was never seriously threatened in the final round. "It’s a pretty special feeling to win again."

His Legion XIII captain, Jon Rahm, had no doubt of Hatton’s ability upon bringing him to LIV Golf as his top running mate on his new expansion team. As it turned out, Hatton beat Rahm to the team’s first individual title.

"For all those out there who don’t know how good Tyrrell Hatton is, this is sure proof," said Rahm, who finished in a four-way tie for third. "I think today just shows how good he can be. Obviously, it’s never easy to win, and to win by six in three rounds is quite impressive."

Hatton entered the final round with a three-shot lead, and then birdied the third and fourth holes. Rahm made an early move and at one point closed the gap to two before suffering a double-bogey at the par-4 sixth when he found the water with two different shots.

The hottest player on the course, Joaquin Niemann, shot a 9-under 62 but was too far back to start the day, eventually tying for third.

"A three-shot lead isn’t the easiest thing to go out and play with because you know guys are going to be trying to chase you," said Hatton, whose par save on the 13th hole was the final key moment. "I got off to a nice start and that settled me down."
