Tyrrell Hatton has explained in detail the time he was robbed at gunpoint and when 'disaster struck' over a bout of food poisoning during his first match for England.
Hatton is in decent form going into the 2023 Masters having posted a T-4 finish at Bay Hill and a runner-up finish at the Players Championship.
There is no denying that the 31-year-old is now an established player in the game, having tasted victory worldwide on seven occasions.
Barring injury, it's not unreasonable to suggest that Hatton will be in Luke Donald's European side at the Ryder Cup in September.
Just one aspect of what makes Hatton so good is how he enjoys the big moments. He doesn't shy away. If there are nerves - he doesn't show it.
So what about having a gun stuck in your face? Hatton outlined this story in an interview with the DailyMail.
The Englishman told Riath Al-Samarrai the saga unfolded when he was 23 years old playing a tournament in Johannesburg.
He noticed a red golf GTi slowing in front of the tournament bus he was travelling on in 2015.

Thanks for sharing Tyrrell. We don't need any more details.
Good luck in Augusta!
