Social media reacts to Tyrrell Hatton CLUB THROW in match against Sergio Garcia

Tyrrell Hatton has quickly become one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour, but his on-course reactions always seem to cause as stir on social media and this time, it's a club throw in his match against Sergio Garcia that has got everyone talking.

The Englishman crashed out of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play after suffering a 3&2 defeat to Garcia and Hatton failed to really get going on Thursday, winning just one hole.

Garcia now has two points on the board having won both of his matches in Group 8 and the Spaniard needs just half a point in his match against Matt Wallace to go through to the knockout stages.

"I think it was a very tricky day, it was much windier than it has been the last couple of days," said Garcia after his victory over Hatton. "Also, probably a different direction. So obviously started well, that always helps, got up early, missed a couple opportunities but then I made a couple nice putts on 8 and 11.

"Kind of kept myself going and then hit some good shots coming in and that was about it. But it's a tough match, you know, I mean both matches yesterday and today, they're two guys that obviously are friends of mine and they're really, really good players, so you know that it's going to be tough and you just hope that you go out there with your best game and get the win."

During the match between the two potential Ryder Cup teammates, Hatton hit an approach shot that he wasn't too pleased with, so he launched his club with a rather smooth flick of the hands, before sarcastically clapping.


Hatton's passion for the game is hard for him to control at times and as usual, his latest antics had golf fans in a social media debate about the 29-year-old, with some grilling him for his attitude and others applauding him for showing he cares.
