On the 10th, after sliding his foot to the right of the hole and a three-putt from 31 feet, he had words.
In the 11th, he was left on the tee.
On the 12th, from the fairway, he hit his second shot well left off the green and long, then hit short and felt.
On the 13th, he dropped a fire tee into the left green side dugout and sank.
On the 14th, he missed an 8-foot birdie putt to the left of the hole. “It’s going to make you mad with this game, right?” “Some more than others,” said one Golf Channel commentator.
On Saturday at Jumeirah Golf Estates, during the third round of the DP World Golf Championship, Terrell Hatton The fuse was getting shorter and shorter in real time. The Englishman is certainly self-inflammable – about two years ago, he was part of A parody called “The Angry Crooks” – But this was more of a slow burning firework. But when they came, they came.
On the 15th, off the fairway and only 58 yards to the flag that was about 8 feet from the left side fringe, Hutton hit the left green side bunker. You might have already guessed why the pin location was included here.
“How close is this pin?” Hatton said.
“Not a happy wagon,” said one of the announcers on the Golf Channel broadcast.
On the 16th, Hutton missed a 12-foot birdie putt to the right, then slammed his putter into what appeared to be spike marks on the green four times.
On a 204-yard, par-3 17th, with a pin that was toward the back of the taller green and about 15 feet from the left edge, Hutton hit his tee shot on the right bunker green. It hit, and you might have a guess why we’ve included the pin location here, too.
He said “worst pin stand”. “Ever. Too bad.”
“He’s running out of excuses, isn’t he?” said an announcer on the Golf Channel. “Most of them have tried.”
It is worth noting that it is shatha.
At 18, Hatton birdied — though he swore after letting his eagle go short — and his run was over. Saturday started tied for the lead, saw his advantage increase to two, then fell three behind leading to Sunday after four bogeys back nine.
Here is where we will notice where we will appreciate the personality. Is it fiery? yes. Is he emotional? This also. There is flavour.
And his comment after the first round—when he shot 65 and was within a share of the lead—was even more so.
“Terrell, despite the recent bogey, it’s the lowest first-round score here by four shots. How do you feel about that 65?”
“I’m surprised to hear that this is my lowest run at the start,” Hatton said. “Obviously it was a good day. He hit a lot of good shots. He was a great bat. Kind of happy with that start.
“Though my head is a little fried at the moment. My mind is raging at the end there. But it is what it is.”
Twenty-four starts for you this year, the second in Arnold Palmer CallSix of the top ten, how do you think about the year so far? “
“I would consistently say very, very average,” Hatton said. Aside from that, a good finish at Bay Hill. We had — I think we were leading the Desert Classic on Saturday afternoon.
“So there were some good ones at the beginning of the year I guess, but then I think after Bay Hill it was pretty boring. Nothing to get you excited to be honest. And even though I had a lot of cuts, I think I missed a couple of cuts.” Just this year. Yeah, I kind of won’t miss — I won’t miss 2022.”
