And after the roller-coaster emotions on being member of the victorious European Ryder Cup team but then sending a woman to hospital after an incident at Kingsbarns Links on Thursday, Hatton is striving to stay relaxed heading now to the final two rounds on the famed Old Course at St. Andrews.
“You’ve got so much adrenaline and such an atmosphere to play in, and then this week is obviously the either end of the scale with obviously the crowds aren’t so big here,” he said.
“It’s much more relaxed style of golf. We’re playing with the amateurs, and we have a good time out there, and that’s what this week’s all about.
“Also, we got Carnoustie on a nice day today, which helps a lot. This is the toughest out of the three. Especially when it blows, so we’re all fortunate to get pretty calm conditions.”
