Hatton

HATTON REMINDS ME OF WEISKOPF

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez to reflect on last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill: “It was an exciting tournament from a British standpoint. Apart from Tyrrell Hatton winning, Rory McIlroy was always a factor and it showed again how important the international players are to the PGA Tour. The tour wouldn’t be anything without the input of the international players and that was proven again last week. I have to say I don’t really care for that sort of golf though.

GREAT SCOTT

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez about Adam Scott’s victory at the Genesis Invitational in California: ”Adam has been one of the top five ball-strikers in golf for several years and it was good to see him get back in the winners’ circle on Sunday. He’s the man of the moment now. I actually thought Rory McIlroy might beat him to the trophy but the new world number one was derailed by that early triple bogey in the final round.
