Alfred Dunhill Championship 2016


Round 4 - Hatton wins Dunhill Links title

October 9, 2016

England's Tyrrell Hatton fired his second scintillating round of the weekend to win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews on Sunday -- his first European Tour title.

The 24-year-old had stormed into the lead with a majestic 62 at the Old Course on Saturday and followed that with a round of 66 to finish on 23-under for the week.

Compatriot Ross Fisher and South Africa's Richard Sterne finished four shots adrift.

Hatton, who pocketed $800,000, carded seven birdies to stay ahead of the chasers, his only blemish coming with a bogey at the 17th.

Round 3 - Hatton cards superb 62 to lead at Dunhill Links

October 8, 2016

England's Tyrrell Hatton fired a sensational 10-under-par 62 at St Andrews on Saturday to open a three-shot lead going into the final round of the multi-venue Dunhill Links Championship.

"It's quite clearly the best round I've ever had," the 24-year-old, who is yet to win a European Tour title, said.

"My lowest round ever and to do it at the home of golf makes it even more special. I'm looking forward to tomorrow.

"I've never actually got to double digits before. Just kept the momentum going with holing some good birdie putts."

Hatton took full advantage of benign conditions on the Old Course, going out in 30, to move in front of overnight leader Ross Fisher who carded a 69 at Carnoustie.

Round 2 - Late double bogey is costly for Pieters at Dunhill Links

October 7, 2016

Thomas Pieters, the leading scorer at last week's Ryder Cup with four points from five matches, came unstuck at his penultimate hole in the Dunhill Links Championship second round on Friday.

The long-hitting Belgian worked his way into a good position near the top of the leaderboard before a double-bogey six at the 17th meant he had to settle for a four-under 68 and a total of 138, five strokes behind leader Ross Fisher of England (68).

"It's a shame to finish with a double because I was going along nicely and making a few putts," Ryder Cup rookie Pieters told reporters at Kingsbarns, one of three courses being used at the pro-am event in Scotland.

"You can't drive it in the fairway bunkers here, you just can't. I'll have to avoid those tomorrow at St Andrews as well."

Round 1 - Pieters, Cabrera-Bello trail as Noren leads in Scotland

October 6, 2016

Ryder Cup rookies Thomas Pieters and Rafa Cabrera-Bello made a low-key return to the European Tour on Thursday, posting two-under-par 70s in the opening round of the Dunhill Links Championship.

Swede Alex Noren, chasing his third victory of the season, led the way on 64 at the pro-am event that is being played on three courses -- St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

Pieters birdied the par-four seventh at Carnoustie after hitting a monster drive on to the green at the 401-yard hole.

"It's great to be back. Everybody is on my side here," the big-hitting Belgian told reporters.

"But I'm still very tired mentally," added Pieters who was top scorer with four points from five matches at last week's Ryder Cup in Minnesota won 17-11 by the United States.

Spaniard Cabrera-Bello began his Dunhill campaign with four birdies and two bogeys at Carnoustie.

England's Ross Fisher was in second place on 65, one ahead of compatriot Matt Ford and Swede Joakim Lagergren.
