England’s Hatton leads by three at Dunhill Links

Tyrrell Hatton

Hatton finished second at the Scottish Open in July – the biggest result of his career to date

England’s Tyrrell Hatton will take a three-shot lead into the final round of the Dunhill Links Championship after a superb 10-under 62 at St Andrew’s.

The 24-year-old from High Wycombe is chasing his first European Tour victory and a £640,380 winner’s cheque.

Hatton’s nearest challenger is compatriot Ross Fisher who is three shots back on 14 under par.

Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren and South Africa’s Richard Sterne are a further stroke behind on 13 under.

Danny Willett and Lee Westwood – part of Europe’s defeated Ryder Cup team in Hazeltine last weekend – are well off the pace on six and ten over respectively.

However Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello, who took two and a half points from his three matches against the Americans, is better placed on eight under.
