Tyrrell Hatton hits the front at BMW PGA Championship

Tyrrell Hatton continued his solid year of golf by moving into a share of the first-round lead at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

Hatton, the World No.15, posted a superb round of 6-under 66, highlighted by a stunning chip-in eagle on the par-5 4th hole...




Hatton's score was matched later in the day by Justin Harding and Adri Arnaus. 

Justin Rose moved into contention for a first BMW PGA title with a 4-under 68 - and he provided one of the more comical moments of the day when thinking he had made a hole-in-one, only to realise that was not quite the case...

Fresh of his European Tour victory in a playoff over Tommy Fleetwood at the Scottish Open last week, Aaron Rai maintained his stellar form to match Rose's score with a flawless 4-under 68.



Matt Wallace also got off to a solid start with a 3-under 69, a score that was matched by Ian Poulter, who finished birdie, birdie, eagle despite suffering with back pain for much of the day. 

Patrick Reed double-bogeyed his final hole at the par-4 8th to fall back to 2-under alongside Lee Westwood, both of whom are playing alongside Hatton for the opening two rounds.
