Tyrrell Hatton: "I am really excited to defend"

Tyrrell Hatton, statements

“I am really excited about returning to defend my BMW PGA Championship title. To have the fans back at Wentworth is going to be pretty incredible and I’m sure they will create a memorable atmosphere.

I was over the moon to put my name on the BMW PGA Championship trophy last October as this tournament has meant so much to me down the years. Defending that title in front of the home fans will be an extra special experience"

Cameron Champ is the winner of the third edition of the 3M Open, the PGA Tour golf tournament. In Blaine, Minnesota, the American - who has risen from fourth position - with a bogey free final lap (with 5 birdies) underlined by a 66 (-5) out of a total of 269 (69 67 67 66, -15) strokes, he found success two years after the last time (Safeway Open in September 2019) celebrating his third career title on the circuit at the 76th start.

On the path of the TPC Twin Cities (par 71) another second place, after those obtained this year at the Zurich Classic, the PGA Championship and the US Open, for Louis Oosthuizen. For 12 times runner up on the top American circuit, the South African is also back from third place at The Open.

Alongside him in Minnesota, with a total of 271 (-13), also fellow countryman Charl Schwartzel and Colombian Jhonattan Vegas. While the Americans Matthew Wolff and Michael Thompson, champions in 2019 and 2020 respectively, did not go beyond the 39th position with 279 (-5).

In front of them, for a single shot, among others - 34 / i with 278 (-6) - there are also two Americans: Rickie Fowler (in the lead after the first lap) and Patrick Reed, with the latter now flying to Tokyo to replace Bryson DeChambeau on the pitch at the Games, out because he was positive at Covid.
