Tyrrell Hatton Set Dunhill Links Record

Both of Hatton's career titles have come at the Dunhill Links, having won with a score of 23 under par in 2016.

But in ideal, benign conditions for scoring, what had seemed nearly inevitable in this event for years finally happened.

Runner-up Fisher also wrote his name in to the history books on the final day at St. Andrews as he broke the Old Course record with a blistering round of 11 under par 61.

In the end, that was nearly an anti-climax.

Fisher birdied six of his last seven holes at Kingsbarns for a 67 while Donald also produced a big finish with four gains in seven holes.

"This week was the first time I had ever defended a title or had the chance to try and do it". "It felt so much harder than past year, maybe that's just a bit more pressure on myself but I'm so happy that I managed to defend it and what a great week again".

Hatton's game stands up to that of any of his contemporaries, such as Tommy Fleetwood and Matthew Fitzpatrick, so if he can feel better on the course then it can only help him fulfil his potential.

The two had just crossed the border-defining Naf river, which has been the scene of dozens of drownings in the last two months. Across the border in Myanmar , hundreds of Rohingya were massed on the riverbank awaiting the opportunity to leave.

South African great Gary Player had mixed views on Fisher's feat, however, emphasising that modern-day equipment has made it easier for players to post lower scores.

In truth, when he chipped in from the bank of the Swilcan Burn after drowning his second shot there to escape with a par, there was only going to be one victor no matter what Fisher or anyone else did. You can nearly guarantee the weather will be more of a factor then, too, even though it should really be more favourable in Scotland in the height of summer than early autumn. "But I would definitely have taken it".

"I caught fire a bit on the back nine as well. Yeah, hasn't been the year I wanted on the golf course". "I managed to give him a little bit to think about coming down the stretch". But hats off to him.

"Hatton, 25, opened up a seven-shot lead with four birdies on the front nine and gained a further shot on the 14th - he dropped only two shots during the tournament - to finish on 66, 24-under, for his second European Tour title".

Elsewhere, Rory McIlroy ended his final tournament of the season with a level-par round of 72 - and despite a hard and frustrating year, he seemed positive about taking a break ahead of 2018.

"My last round of 2017 sort of summed up all of 2017", he said.
