The Outlook

Let’s start with the bad news: Hatton has missed the cut in his past three starts, and his major championship record isn’t much cleaner, having MC’d in four of his last five major starts. If that’s not enough to make you click away already, consider that he’s still a top-25 player, still an up-and-comer at age 26 and still a fine performer on links courses, with two of his three career European Tour victories taking place on these tracks.
