Who is Tyrrell Hatton?

He’s known as one of the angry men in golf, but who is Tyrrell Hatton? Find out more about the Englishman with our player profile…

 

Known for his on-course commentary and moments of anger, Tyrrell Hatton is a fan favourite, and has established himself as a major name on both the DP World Tour and the PGA Tour over the last few years.

The Englishman qualified for the Open Championship in 2010 as an amateur, and a year later, he turned professional. After wins on the Jamega Pro Golf Tour and the PGA EuroPro Tour, he graduated to the DP World Tour in 2014, where he had a pair of top five finishes.

Hatton’s first win on the DP World Tour came in 2016, as he conquered the Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns to win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He returned a year later, defending his title before then winning the Italian Open. Hatton is one of just two men to have won more than two Rolex Series tournaments on the DP World Tour. His four victories rank second only to former World No 1 Jon Rahm, who has five. The Italian Open was the first of those, and he has also lifted the Turkish Airlines Open, BMW PGA Championship and Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship trophies.

The Englishman grabbed his first PGA Tour win in 2020, as he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational. That win, along with the victory at the DP World Tour’s flagship event at Wentworth, saw him break into the top five in the world rankings at the start of 2021, with World No 5 being his career-best to date.

In January 2024, it was revealed that the Englishman would be the latest man to make the switch to play for LIV Golf, joining the new Legion XIII team alongside Spain’s Jon Rahm.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
