Tyrrell Hatton on making his first Ryder Cup, harnessing his emotions, and that season-saving putter purchase
Tyrrell Hatton didn't win the Dell Technologies Championship, but on Sunday he was the talk of TPC Boston for his hot putter, his fiery emotions, and his golf ball "defying gravity" on the 18th hole. In short, it was one of the craziest — and most entertaining — rounds you'll ever see from a tour pro. And the good news is that a lot more golf fans will be introduced to this rising English star later this month.
As one of eight automatic qualifiers for the 2018 European Ryder Cup team, Hatton will play on one of golf's biggest stages later this month when the biennial event heads to France for the first time. It will be another chance for this top-25 player to showcase his skills, as well as an opportunity to really cut loose with passionate reactions. Let's just say captain Thomas Bjorn doesn't need to say much to get this 26-year-old going.
Fresh off his wild performance in the second leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, Hatton came on the Golf Digest Podcast to discuss his on-course temperament, Bjorn's Ryder Cup captain's picks, people mispronouncing his name, and that season-saving putter purchase at Golf Galaxy. Keely Levins and I also discussed Bryson DeChambeau's dominant postseason, a hole-in-one business idea, and a co-worker's costly Ryder Cup bet. Please have a listen:
