Tyrrell Hatton is flying under the radar a bit. He’s not contending week in and week out for tournament titles, but the Englishman is consistently posting high finishes to maintain his top-20 ranking in the world.

The fiery golfer comes to the Genesis Scottish Open on a streak of eight straight finishes of T-34th or higher. He owns three top-fives in that span, including a couple starts ago where he posted T-3rd at the RBC Canadian Open.

Hatton has done everything but win in the 2022-23 PGA Tour season with a solo second at the Players Championship the high water mark of six top-10s. That doesn’t include four more top-10s since last fall on the DP World Tour.

The 31-year-old’s been consistent at The Renaissance Club, as well. He posted T-14th (70-66-64-67) in 2019, T-18th (69-67-72-65) in 2021, and T-24th (68-70-72-70) in 2022.

He’s twice a winner in Scotland, winning the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in back-to-back years in 2016-17. Hatton owns three top-11 finishes at The Open Championship.

Hatton is third in total strokes gained per round (2.091) on the PGA Tour. I’m not sure if the average fan would realize that. He’s top-20 in every other SG category except for around-the-green, where Hatton is still in the positive at 69th (.108).

A good short game is often needed in the U.K., but despite his strokes-gained numbers, he’s still 18th in scrambling (64.25%). Hatton is also 17th in bogey avoidance (13.79%) and third in total putting (56.1).
