Martin Dempster: Sad to see Old Course brought to its knees

Tyrrell Hatton wins the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship by 3 Martin Dempster: Sad to see Old Course brought to its knees
Melody Ballard | 11 October, 2017, 00:30

Hatton became the first man to retain the Dunhill title - and only the second to win it twice - as he coasted to a final round 66 for a three shot margin of victory on 24-under aggregate of 264 - beating his own record from his victory a year ago by a shot.

It had seen Englishman Ross Fisher fire 11 birdies in a bogey-free effort of 61 to set a new course record on a day when, taking full advantage of benign conditions and friendly
pin positions, the most famous course in the world was absolutely destroyed.

Hatton got up to 14th in the world rankings in March before enduring a frustrating summer, but that will all be forgotten should he become the first man to successfully defend this title. Hatton kept his foot on the pedal after three rounds in the 60s at St. Andrew's, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns, coming out with four birdies in his first five holes.

Ross Fisher broke the scoring record at the Old Course with an 11-under, 61.

"Just wanted to come out here and put in a good performance, and if I could, try and repeat previous year finishing tied second", Fisher said.

Starting the day eight strokes back of eventual victor Tyrell Hatton, Fisher opened with seven birdies on the front nine to turn in 29, then made four straight birdies on Nos. "But I would definitely have taken it".

"And they've been very quiet lately, so my suspicions are up that I think the discussions are going on".

Golfweek's Geoff Shackelford addressed Player's comments on Golf Channel's Morning Drive on Monday morning, and said he thinks that we could see equipment being regulated by governing bodies at some point.

"Made myself very hard to catch, hopefully I can do that again tomorrow". Just sort of stuck in neutral. "It's absolutely brilliant to win the Team Championship for a third time". Grace was seven-under with three holes to go, but finished poorly with bogeys at 16, at 228m one of the longest par-3s in golf, and 17, which is one of the toughest par-4s on the course.

Kingsbarns and the Old Course at St Andrews are the others, with players alternating between the three in the first three rounds before playing at St Andrews again for the final round.

'We've just had good fun, that is what this tournament is about'.

For Hatton, a tap-in par at the last was more than enough to get back in to the winner's circle.
