Tyrrell Hatton is trending toward a trophy.

The Englishman continues to rattle off high finishes, this time a T-12th last week at the Memorial Tournament. It was his fifth straight top-20.

Four of those top-20s came at designated events or a major, including T-3rd at the Wells Fargo Championship.

At the Memorial, Hatton had a decent putting week (15th), but just wasn’t crisp enough on approach or around the greens to give himself a chance on Sunday.

Hatton also took solo second at the Players Championship. He owns five top-10s this PGA Tour season as he seeks his first win in the U.S. since the 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Hatton does have a pair of DP World Tour victories in the interim.

The 31-year-old ranks third on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained (2.033). How many golf fans do you think would’ve known that?

Many know him for his blow-ups on the course, but he’s not making anger-inducing mistakes all that often.

Hatton is top-60 in every SG category, including seventh in tee-to-green (1.436). He’s fourth in scoring average (69.52) and is a favorite among DFS players with just one missed cut all season.

Hatton missed the cut at last year’s RBC Canadian Open, so a switch to Oakdale this year is likely welcomed. This will be the second time in his career teeing it up in Canada.

Next. Denny McCarthy loses at his own game. dark

He’s a lock for the European Ryder Cup team this fall in Rome.

Hatton has some demons to slay at the majors when he arrives to next week’s U.S. Open, but a lack of a spotlight on this week’s event could allow him to get it done under less scrutiny.
