Hatton breaks into World top ten

Englishman wins BMW PGA Championship by four shots

Tyrrell Hatton claimed his third Rolex Series title at the BMW PGA Championship, batting off the formidable challenge of Frenchman Victor Perez to earn a dream victory at his home event.

The Englishman, who turns 29 this coming Wednesday, regularly attended the Wentworth showpiece as a kid and he etched his name alongside some of the greats of the game courtesy of a five-under-par final round 67 and a four-stroke victory in the third Rolex Series event of the 2020 Race to Dubai.
In more benign conditions at the prestigious Surrey venue, numerous challengers staked a claim for the title early on, but Hatton – who admitted that he had been more nervous ahead of the final round than he had been on his Ryder Cup debut in 2018 – was composure personified as he pulled away from the pack thanks to three successive birdies around the turn.

He never looked back and a birdie at the final hole earned him a 19 under total for the Championship, sealing a fifth European Tour title and elevating him to eighth in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex.
Perez, who has now finished runner-up in three of his 11 Rolex Series appearances, put up an almighty battle having started the day three shots behind Hatton. He reached the turn in four-under after an eagle at the par five fourth hole, but his challenge faded down the stretch and he signed for a four-under round of 68 and a 15 under total.
Patrick Reed extended his lead at the top of the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex with a share of third place on 14 under par, alongside Andy Sullivan - the Englishman recording his best finish in his home event. Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter was a further shot back on 13 under par after a closing 68.
