Hatton retains Dunhill title, Fisher record 61 at Old Course

Rory Mc Ilroy was Fleetwood's playing partner but he could only card 71 on a disappointing day

Rory Mc Ilroy was Fleetwood's playing partner but he could only card 71 on a disappointing day

Ross Fisher set a course record at St Andrews, the spiritual home of golf, yesterday with an 11-under-par round of 61 in the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

He showed his class at the first hole on Sunday where, having landed in the Swilcan Burn with his second shot, he conjured an exquisite chip in for par. Then, Ross Fisher shot a 61 at the Old Course at St. Andrews on Sunday to break the previous record of 62.

Hatton, who turns 26 next Saturday, did not drop a shot over his last 54 holes, a blistering run that gave him a second career Tour title and will lift him to 22nd in the world rankings.

Tyrrell Hatton made a timely charge in the Race to Dubai as the countdown to the season-ending US$8 million DP World Tour Championship, Dubai begins after becoming the first man to successfully defend the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. "Hopefully next year we'll be back playing in the tournament again".

Hatton's game stands up to that of any of his contemporaries, such as Tommy Fleetwood and Matthew Fitzpatrick, so if he can feel better on the course then it can only help him fulfil his potential.

"I'm gutted I missed that one on the last but it's just one of those days as I felt like I was playing alright but I'm not going to complain too much with a 61", Fisher told BBC.

"I played baseball for two years, and even went to Japan". In the process, his 24-under mark broke the tournament record by one that he matched past year.

The first booking of the game came in the ninth minute, when Simeon Slavchev was yellow carded for pulling back Kylian Mbappé. The late game in that Group saw Greece come from a goal down to beat Cyprus 2-1 and go second in the group with a game to go.

"Fair play to Fish, it was an incredible round of golf and he certainly did push me all the way". I'm so happy that I managed to get over the line.

It is the second year in a row that Fisher has finished second at this event and he was four shots clear of Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, who carded a 63.

English trio Oliver Fisher, Eddie Pepperell and Luke Donald joined Dunne and Alexander Levy on 13 under, while McIlroy mixed two birdies with two bogeys to end the week in a share of 63rd spot.

In tough conditions, Steele shot a three-under-par 69 - one of just seven rounds in the 60s - to overturn a two-stroke deficit. You never know what could be happening behind the scenes contributing to that, but what you can say is that he seems to have turned it around. But to go out and shoot a score like that, with no bogeys...

"So this old man is just trying to show them that I'm not over the hill yet".

"I feel I'm a much better player than I was in 2011 and 2012, when I was able to win a couple of majors".
