Hatton holds off record-breaking Fisher to win Dunhill Links

England's Tyrrell Hatton put himself in line to become the first player to successfully defend the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship after a seven-under-par 65 at Carnoustie on Friday.

The Englishman held off a strong charge from Ross Fisher, who broke Hatton's course record on The Old Course on Sunday with an impressive 11-under-par 61 - but he was not the only one to break a record this week.

Hatton will take all the headlines for achieving this memorable brace at St. Andrews, the home of golf.

Gary Player spoke out Sunday about technological advances to the golf ball and equipment after Ross Fisher torched The Old Course at St. Andrews to the tune of a new course record.

"I didn't see a leaderboard on the back nine until the 16th green, when I saw Fish was at 21-under and I was thinking how well he was going today".

Fisher made four birdies in a row from the second, holed a huge putt at the seventh, a 15-footer on the eighth and took advantage of the short ninth to turn in 29 but when Hatton birdied the same hole, he led by six with nine to play.

"I'm definitely a better player I feel than the player that won some of those tournaments and some of those majors", McIlroy said.

FFD also wants you to remember smoke alarms should be tested monthly, and that batteries should be replaced every six months. Today the Crooksville Fire Department held an open house for the community to learn about fire safety.

"You know, it felt like it was a lot harder this year, well, winning this year, than it was last year. I got off to a fast start and managed to make some good putts early on".

"My last round of 2017 summed up my season in 2017, stuck in neutral", he said, although he still believes the prep work to be done in the next few weeks will set him up for a return to glories in 2018.

"I'm not going to leave any stone unturned and do everything I can to get back to the best player in the world". Just sort of stuck in neutral.

"I'm pretty chuffed because after 28 holes this week after Carnoustie on day one and then 10 holes at Kingsbarns, I was four-over-par for the tournament".

Stone did three-putt both 17 (for par) and 18 (for birdie) from off the green, albeit a good 60-feet in both instances, but he feels his game is peaking just at the right time ahead of Italy this week and then, following a week off, China, Turkey, the Nedbank Golf Challenge and Dubai as the 2017 European Tour draws to a close.

Another man who also made significant strides up the season rankings is Robert Rock.

Warne was delighted to qualify for the final round of the team competition for the first time at the 11th attempt, while actor Jamie Dornan again experienced the thrill of playing the Old Course's iconic 18th hole in the final group alongside professional partner Tyrrell Hatton.
