Tyrrell Hatton lands first LIV Golf victory at Nashville

Tyrrell Hatton cruised to a six-shot victory at LIV Golf Nashville for his maiden LIV victory on Sunday in College Grove, Tenn.

The Englishman fired a 6-under 65 to get to 19-under 194 for the week at The Grove; he scored consistently low throughout the tournament, going 65-64-65. Countryman Sam Horsfield was alone in second at 13 under after a 65 of his own.

Hatton also helped deliver his team, Legion XIII, its third team title of its debut season in the league. Captained by Jon Rahm of Spain, Legion XIII is the first team to three wins in 2024 and trails first-place Crushers GC by 9.5 points in the season standings. Hatton joined Rahm’s team last winter when both switched allegiances from the PGA Tour to LIV Golf.

Hatton’s final-round 65 combined with Rahm’s 68, Caleb Surratt’s 69 and Zimbabwean Kieran Vincent’s 70 on Sunday. At 40 under for the week, Legion XIII beat Crushers by five strokes.

Hatton, 32, earned his first win since the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January 2021.

“It was nice to play the last few holes and it not be super tight,” Hatton said. “I guess having not won for 3 1/2 years, it feels — you wonder if you’d be able to do it again in some way. So I was happy that I had sort of proved to myself.”

Hatton rolled in eight birdies and made only two bogeys on Sunday. He birdied three of his final five holes to ensure no one could get close.

“In my head, it was stressful,” Hatton said. “You know, early in the back nine, ended up holing a really good par putt on 10. I hit it in the bunker off the tee and (his teammates) know, but I’m internally screaming in fairway bunkers. I either fat it or knife it, and I knifed it over the back.

“So then obviously chips on to like 6 feet and I have a sort of downhill left-to-right, which isn’t a nice putt to have, and holing that was really nice. And then the par save on 13, as well, I ran my first putt quite far past and managed to roll that one in. I felt like that was a key moment for me.

“After 15, I guess I enjoyed it a little bit more.”

Rahm tied for third at 12 under with U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau (68), Englishman Lee Westwood (66) and the late-charging Joaquin Niemann of Chile, who made 10 birdies amid a 9-under 62.

“Very proud of everybody, and of course, Tyrrell,” Rahm said. “What a week to get his first win in a few years and win by six in an absolutely dominant performance the way he did. It’s absolutely incredible, so I couldn’t be happier for him.”
