Hatton ‘Unjust’ hits out in Augusta – Golf News

It may be that Tyrrell Hatton mysteriously lost his invitation to the post at next year’s Masters when World No. August 17 began a verbal rebuke as the ‘unfair’ set up of the National course.

Hatton, who opened with 72 and 74 rounds, added a 79 on Saturday and an eight-over-par-80 on Sunday to cut between +18 and the last 52 players. And the 30-year-old from Buckinghamshire was keen to explain that he was not entirely responsible for returning to his weak weekend.

“You can hit good shots here and you won’t get any rewards for that,” Hatton said after his final round. “I do not agree with that. If you hit a good shot, you should end up near the hole, then they are not short in a bunker because of the shield they make. I don’t think it’s a fair test at times, and I didn’t enjoy it. “

He added: “Honestly, I’m glad it’s over. Obviously, I’m disappointed, but I’ve never been better here. This course doesn’t really fit my eyes, so it’s one of those weeks that I feel like it’s an opportunity for me to try my best. “

Hatton was playing in his sixth consecutive Masters, making his debut in 2017. His best finish was 18th last year, where he shot a final round 68. He missed cuts in 2017 and 2020, but was ranked 44th and 56th in 2018 and 2019 respectively

At Augusta National, it is rare for players to openly criticize the course, as the club has a reputation for not being kind enough to make negative comments about anything related to the club or the way the course or tournament is conducted. CBS golf commentator Gary McCord withdrew his media recognition after famously describing the 17th green as ‘bikini waxed’ after the 1994 Masters.
