- Hatton’s maiden PGA Tour win was built on his consistent ball striking, which proved an advantage around Bay Hill in extremely difficult conditions. With the course setup almost resembling a major championship and strong winds, the Englishman ranked in the top-10 for greens in regulation despite hitting nearly 14 percent less greens than his season average to date, finding just 42 of 72 greens this past week, with his PING i210 irons offering forgiveness and workability.
- Like most PING contracted players, Hatton uses at least 11 of the brand’s clubs, including driver and putter, with his 3-wood regularly one of the clubs the 28-year-old opts to experiment with other company’s models. Hatton’s SIM Max, the more forgiving off TaylorMade’s latest metalwood offerings.
- Measuring five feet, nine inches, Hatton has many of his clubs built shorter than standard length, with his putter measuring 32.5 inches, well below the 35 inches that was once considered to be “men’s standard length”.
Hatton’s win with Titleist’s Pro V1x is the fifth straight PGA Tour victory for the company’s premium ball offering that now has accounted for 18 wins from 23 events in season 2019/20 on the PGA Tour.
