Tyrell Hatton equals St Andrews course record

With a brilliant 62

Tyrrell Hatton equalled the Old Course record with a brilliant 62 at St Andrews to take a three-shot lead into the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The 24-year-old Englishman had ten birdies, including one at the Road Hole. He was out in 30, and back in 32, and of course, not a single shot dropped! 

Hatton said: “It's quite clearly the best round I've ever had. I've never actually got to double digits under-par before, so I’m very pleased with that.

“Obviously I'd love to get a win. I'll just play my game and see what happens. Hopefully I can putt well again and we'll have a good day. I can only try my best and what will be, will be.”

Chasing Hatton is Ross Fisher, who shot a 69 at the much harder Carnoustie, with Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren and South Africa’s Richard Sterne a further shot back.

Fisher said: “It was a beautiful day to play Carnoustie. It was still tricky out there. It was very firm, very fiery, but overall I’m pretty pleased with the round. There were a couple of scrappy shots. Maybe I left a couple of putts out there, but I can't complain after shooting in the 60s for the third day running.”



It's official–Tiger is coming back at the Safeway
