Tyrrell Hatton is one of the most in-form players on the PGA Tour right now and after finding his first victory in the United States at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, it might not be too long before he adds another trophy to the cabinet. As good as his golf game is, Hatton has a habit of coming out with some pretty funny comments from time to time and his latest act of sarcasm at the Rocket Mortgage Classic had everyone laughing.

Hatton shot a solid 4-under par round of 68 on Thursday, but on one of the holes he overcut his drive and found the bunker and that's where we treated to some of his classic sarcasm.

"Good swing. That's awesome. You are so bad," said Hatton, kicking himself while he was down.

The video was posted on the PGA Tour Twitter account and hundreds of golf fans commented, relating to Hatton's words but admitting in their cases it's used a lot less sarcastically.

The Englishman made a few mistakes in Detroit on Thursday, but finishing 4-under par has left him in a great position to chase the lead during his second round on Friday.

With four European Tour titles to his name, Hatton went on to win his maiden PGA Tour title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational back in March and has looked like a new man on the golf course over the last few months.

After the PGA Tour's forced 91-day break, Hatton skipped the Charles Schwab Challenge but returned for the RBC Heritage where he finished T3 and the 28-year-old now sits 15th in the World Rankings.
