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.
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.
