The son of golf professional Jeff Hatton, Tyrrell is one of the established stars of the European Tour. After a solid amateur career playing at both county and country level, he turned professional in 2011. With a 10th place finish on the Challenge Tour for the 2013 season, he qualified to play the 2014 season on the full European Tour, recording his first win on the Tour in 2016 on the Old Course, St Andrews. Further significant wins followed in 2017, as well as a move into the Top 20 on the official world golf rankings.
Known for a fiery on-course temperament in his early days on Europe's premier professional tour, Hatton's behaviour seems to have calmed as his success on the tour has grown.
