The event is the PGA Tour's version of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, contested at Kingsbarns, Carnoustie and the Old Course at St. Andrews. Hatton equaled the Old Course record of 62 in Round 3 and then fired a 66 on the same layout on Sunday. He also posted a pair of top-10 finishes in the final two majors of 2016, tying for fifth in The Open Championship at Royal Troon and tying for 10th in the PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club. He will be making his U.S. Open debut at Erin Hills.
