WITB: Tyrrell Hatton - Dunhill Links Championship

Powered by National Club Golfer

Which clubs helped the Ping staffer to his second win at the Home of Golf?

Tyrrell Hatton absolutely smashed it at St Andrews for a second year running but this time had a new Ping G400 driver and Crossover in his bag.

The Englishman defended his Alfred Dunhill Links title with ease despite a stunning 61 from compatriot Ross Fisher.

Hatton still finished three clear on -24 despite Fisher’s new Old Course record.


It was the G400 LST model set to 8.5˚ which got the job done and he used a G400 3 Crossover to great effect – finding the fairway with it at the last to enjoy his walk home.

Hatton, who signed a club deal with Ping about a year ago, plays the i200 irons and Glide wedges. He does keep a trusty Vokey lob wedge in the bag too.

His greens in regulation was an impressive 81 per cent which had him in ninth position and he had a 100 per cent sand save success rate.

Hatton’s putter is the Ping Vault Oslo and has arguably been the most valuable weapon in his arsenal over the past 12 months. He averaged 28 putts per round which was the fourth best in the field.
