Tyrrell Glen Hatton (born 14 October 1991) is an English professional golfer who plays on the European Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

Professional career[edit]

Prior to joining the Challenge Tour in 2012 Hatton mainly played on the PGA EuroPro Tour and the Jamega Pro Golf Tour and has won two events on each of these tours. His first professional win came at Woodcote Park Golf Club on the Jamega Tour[2] He followed this up with a second win on the Jamega Tour at Caversham Heath.[3] Hatton's first win on the PGA EuroPro Tour came at the final stage of the tour's 2012 qualifying school at Frilford Heath Golf Club[4] and he followed this with a second win at the Your Golf Travel Classic at Bovey Castle later in the same season.[5]

Hatton played on the Challenge Tour in 2012 and 2013. His best finishes were a pair of T-2s at the Kazakhstan Open and The Foshan Open in 2013. He finished 10th on the 2013 Challenge Tour rankings to qualify for the 2014 European Tour.[6]

Hatton finished T-2 at the 2014 Joburg Open, a position that would have qualified him for the 2014 Open Championship. He did not earn entry since tiebreakers are settled according to the world rankings. He finished T-4 at the 2014 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, which qualified him for the 2014 Open Championship.[1]

On the 9 October 2016, Hatton secured his first victory on the European Tour as he cruised to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship title at St Andrews. He finished on 23 under par, four shots clear of South African Richard Sterne and England's Ross Fisher. Hatton carded a final round six-under 66, having equalled the St Andrews Old Course record with a 62 in the third round. The win took him inside the top 35 of the Official World Golf Ranking, from 53rd.[7]
