    Hatton is giving 4-20 a whole new meaning.
    A lot of psychological stuff to digest from the men’s events this week. But we will leave the pga tour for another article.
    Sure rory hasn’t won enough but he was still that guy other guys fold for, at least it was still that way halfway thru Sunday.
    But then it became evident that while rory is still rory, it’s absolutely time to comprehend what this man tyrell Hatton is:
    world class.
    Comfortable in how skin.
    A man whom other golfers officially fold for.
    Talking about making the Ryder cup team has to be a joke. Even if Hatton was last in the standings somehow, he would have to be a pick. He can reset easy about making that team. Then again, Hatton doesn’t seem like he likes to rest easy.

    The guy on the euro tour who takes it too easy, much like Tony finau, is Rafa hello. Like Tony he has every aspect of the game going for him, but watching we just don’t see enough of that psychological fire in the belly to get over the line over this kind of competition.

    You better breathe fire if you want to beat tyrell Hatton.

      Rafa is a styler, dresses to the nines, but can’t make crucial putts…..simple as that…I’ve watched him a lot as I’m an early riser and have logged way too many hours watching the European Tour…

        He could putt a little better bit like Tony he can putt; otherwise he wouldn’t always be in contention. Finishing is their problem. Finishing. Imo.
