It has been quite the two-week stretch for Tyrrell Hatton. A week after breaking the course record at St Andrews with a final-round 61 to defend his title at the Alfred Dunhill Links, Hatton made it back-to-back wins with his victory at the Italian Open overnight.
The Englishman shot a final-round 65 for the win. Oh, and it was Hatton’s birthday this weekend, too. Who’s had a better start to October than this guy?
So how did Hatton celebrate his latest feat? With a combined €1.666 million in event earnings – the equivalent of almost $A2.5 million – you’d think the 26-year-old would choose an extravagant meal to mark the occasion.
Not for Hatton – the Italian Open champ kept it simple – dining at Burger King on Sunday night after the title, choosing a Whopper over a lobster.
We applaud Hatton for kicking it like an ordinary Joe. He surely won over some fans with that tweet. And we have a feeling the real celebration will come eventually.
But for now, sit back and enjoy those chicken fries.
