Hatton’s 65 keeps him on course

Tyrrell Hatton stands on the verge of history on the Old Course tomorrow, after a brilliant third round 65 at Kingsbarns took him to 18-under-par.

No one has ever won back-to-back Alfred Dunhill titles before, but few will be willing to bet against him achieving the feat now.

Most thought Hatton would face stiff competition from Tommy Fleetwood, but the World No 17 struggled for much of the day and dropped back to eight-under-par with a hole remaining.

The nearest opposition, with the third round coming to an end, now comes from France’s Gregory Bourdy who is five shots behind.
