Got any ID? Tyrrell Hatton rescues LIV youngster at Las Vegas hotel check-in

Tyrrell Hatton became the accompanying adult when helping his LIV Golf teammate Caleb Surratt check into his hotel in Las Vegas…

 

Caleb Surratt is old enough to win fortunes at golf events, but not old enough to win fortunes in Las Vegas.

He also can’t get a hotel for the night in the city that never sleeps without an accompanying adult.

The 19-year-old from North Carolina learned this the hard, and quite funny way when checking in ahead of LIV Golf’s second event of the 2024 schedule.

His Legion XIII teammate Tyrrell Hatton kindly described how he helped Surratt secure his accommodation for the week.

“Checking in yesterday, I kept looking over to Caleb, and he was looking over at me quite nervous,” he said at Las Vegas Country Club.

“So once I finished checking in, I wandered over to make sure that he was okay, and as I got there, the lady checking him in said that he needed someone over 21 to be on the reservation to allow him to stay in the room.

“I had to hand over my driver’s license to make sure he had a bed for the night.”

Perhaps a moment of perspective for the former Tennessee college player who finished in a tie for 13th on his professional debut at Mayakoba last week.

As well as banking $330,000 at El Camaleon Golf Club, he won an extra $750,000 after Legion XIII, which also features Jon Rahm and Kieran Vincent, won the team event in the first tournament of its existence.

Surratt turned professional to join LIV straight from his sophomore year at university. He represented the United States at last year’s Walker Cup at St Andrews.

All seems well on the side whose name is inspired by the story of Julius Caesar, as Rahm found his young teammate’s perception of his own age rather amusing too.

“We’ve had some funny discussions with ages related to Caleb and what he thought we were,” Rahm said in Nevada. “One of the first things he told me was man, I didn’t know you were only 29.

“I think with the tone of how he said it, I think he thought I was closer to 40 than 30.” Surratt interjected: “It was actually a compliment but he didn’t see it that way.”
