The Englishman registered his first PGA Tour victory in the 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational just before the circuit was shut down for the COVID-19 pandemic. That gave Hatton eight worldwide wins. He currently has 10 after winning the BMW Championship in October 2020 and the 2021 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. This will be his seventh appearance in the U.S. Open. He tied for sixth in 2018 at Shinnecock Hills. He also was a member of the victorious 2018 European Ryder Cup Team, and was a member of the 2021 side.
