It is becoming a regular trend to see Tyrrell Hatton have an angry rant on the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour and now he has transferred his frustrations to the Saudi International.
In the first round of the Asian Tour event, Hatton shot a solid opening score of 3-under-par at the Royal Greens and Golf Country Club to sit five shots behind Matteo Manassero.
Although he played well, the Englishman was still unhappy with various shots that he hit out in the Saudi Arabian sun and he reacted in his typical style.
On the 18th and final hole of his Thursday card, Hatton was in the middle of the fairway with a wood in his hands and he was going for the green in two shots.

This is a 607-yard par-5, the longest hole on the course, but the 30-year-old sliced his approach and it landed at the bottom of the grandstand short and right of the green.
As his ball soared through the air, Hatton smashed his club down on the floor in disgust and frustration. He went on to make a par and finish with a 67.
On another green in his first round, the one-time PGA Tour winner was very annoyed with a putt that he hit short of the hole that he didn't give a chance of dropping in.
Hatton walked up to his ball and clearly swore on camera. This is not the first time, nor will it be the last, that we will hear Hatton use bad language at an event.

At the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, he snapped his driver and was pictured walking down the 18th fairway with it in the final round at Yas Links.
He was also overheard saying that he would like a bomb dropped on the final hole at the Middle East venue due to the length and positioning of the tee box.
There is certainly a question as to how long can Hatton behave like this before he receives a fine, nonetheless, he is very entertaining.
