  • Tyrrell Hatton picked up his first PGA Tour title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational
  • Hatton hasn’t been strong in three prior Masters appearances
  • Read below to see if he is worth a wager to slip into the green jacket

Tyrrell Hatton survived a brutal test at the Bay Hill Lodge & Club to emerge victorious at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The win marks the Englishmen’s first career PGA Tour title after previously winning four times on the European Tour (once in 2016, twice in 2017 and once in 2019).

Hatton’s odds dropped significantly to win next month’s Masters with that victory, where some books had listed him as high as +20000 to take home the title, with those now settling between +5000  and +8000 at sportsbooks.

Hatton Comes up Clutch at Bay Hill

Tyrrell Hatton was the last man standing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, winning at 4-under par, the highest winning score at the event since way back in 1983. Known for his fiery temper yet brilliant game, Hatton was able to reign in his emotions at a gruelling test of golf to win stateside for the first time. For the week, the 28-year-old was second in strokes gained: approaching the green and fifth tee-to-green, proving he has the ball striking chops to win at Augusta National.

Hatton has Checkered Past at the Masters

If you had placed a future bet on Hatton at +20000 or even +15000 like most books had him listed at, congratulations because after he became the first Englishmen to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational, there’s no way you’re getting him even close to that now.


Winning against an elite field on a tumultuous track and proving you can win on golf’s toughest tour should give Hatton that jolt of confidence to take that next step in his development.

 

To say that Hatton and Augusta National haven’t exactly gotten along too well would be a pretty big understatement. While he has made the cut in his last two showings, he hasn’t come close to contending at the year’s first major to this point in his career. In 19 career major championships, he has put up five top-10 finishes, with nothing better than a 5th place result (2016 Open Championship).

Tyrrell Hatton in Tough to Win Masters

While his odds of +8000 are still quite juicy to slip into his first career green jacket, the likelihood that Hatton gets it done against some of the bigger favorites just isn’t strong enough to invest serious coin in him. However, keep an eye out for any future top-10 bets for him at Augusta National, something that is much more plausible than him making a serious run at the title given his past at the Masters.
