Tyrrell Hatton has been on a great run the last year.
The 29-year-old Englishman has won three times since hoisting the trophy at March’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, most-recently claiming last weekend’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and October’s BMW PGA Championship.
Maybe Hatton is just riding the momentum of re-signing his equipment deal with Ping. Or maybe he’s finally getting help.
Hatton, who jumped from No. 9 to No. 5 in the latest world golf ranking, admittedly wears his heart on his sleeve, which has produced some hilarious on-course moments over the years, like his club toss in disgust at the CJ Cup and when he used his putter as a rifle to shoot at – then give the finger to – a pond.
In a hilarious video posted by the European Tour last week, Hatton admitted to being an “angry golfer.”
New season, new attitude.

In the video, Tommy Fleetwood hosts a group therapy session for some of the angriest golfers on the European Tour, featuring Hatton, Eddie Pepperell, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Henrik Stenson and Ian Poulter. Each player has a little fun made at their expense, with Hatton taking the most shots. Two-time major champion Martin Kaymer even makes an appearance.
Next time you’re on the course, just remember: “When you’re feeling glum, pop up your thumb.” It worked for Hatton.
