Tyrrell Hatton

Rochester, New York, USA

Oak Hill Country Club

Quick Quotes


Q. You've been playing well; things are kind of clicking. What are the things that are working out for you better you think lately?

TYRRELL HATTON: I don't know. I mean, generally I think most of my game has been fairly consistent. I've been driving the ball quite nicely, which goes a long way, and yeah, holing a few putts.

As I said, it's all been all right.

Yeah, just trying my best.

Q. You've been working out physically, clearly, and that's part of it, and part of a tournament like this is the physical and the mental strength and resistance. Do you think you have an advantage with all the work you've put into it?

TYRRELL HATTON: No. I mean, yeah, I've been doing more off the golf course this year in terms of training and stuff, and that's been nice to sort of show some positive results on the golf course.

It's just generally feeling better in myself. It's not so much -- yeah, training helps with career longevity and things like that, but my main goal was really to be a bit more comfortable in my own skin.

But the course this week is going to be pretty demanding. The rough is pretty thick. I don't think that the gym work will help me advance the ball any further out of it than we would have done before. It's just -- yeah, it is going to be a challenging week for sure.

Q. I was talking with some of the guys, and some of them said this is one of the toughest setups of golf courses they've played in a major in a while.

TYRRELL HATTON: Yeah, but also don't forget when we play it in a practice round, the course is playing as long as it possibly can. Hopefully they will be moving tees forward on some holes.

Yeah, it really depends on what tee boxes they use and how hard this course will play. As I said, the rough is pretty thick. It's very hard to judge around the greens. You'll see guys be very close to the green and not even reach the green, or they'll hit it 25 feet past.

It's going to be really hard to get your chip shots close, and yeah, you want to be holing a lot of putts from inside 10 feet this week. That's for sure.

Q. If you look at the beginning of the season and kind of your goals you set and your vision for the season, how are things working out for you compared to those goals?

TYRRELL HATTON: Well, ultimately I think this year is such a massive year on the FedEx. Everyone is really trying to get inside that top 50 because that plays a huge part in how your season will look next year. Being able to play what you want to play in, as well.

Fortunately for me, I've had a nice start so far. We've got quite a few points up.

But ideally I would like to win again on the PGA TOUR. It's been three years now since we won at Bay Hill. That's still a goal of mine, wanting to win again, and I'll be trying my best to do that before the end of the season.

Q. I'm assuming the Ryder Cup is somewhat in your mind. How much do you enjoy the Ryder Cup and how much would you like to be there?

TYRRELL HATTON: Yeah, the Ryder Cup, I've played two now. They're incredibly special weeks. I loved both weeks, although, yeah, it wasn't fun losing at Whistling Straits.

Still, just being in a team and what you're playing for, that's what makes it so special. I think everyone that was on the team at Whistling Straits that's going to hopefully be in the team this time around would like to win the Ryder Cup back, and yeah, it would be pretty special to do it in Rome.
