Tyrrell Hatton coasted to his maiden European Tour win at the 83rd time of asking, at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The world number 53, who equalled the St Andrews Old Course record of 62 on Saturday, finished at 23-under-par, four shots ahead of the pack.

Hatton went into the final day in Scotland with a three shot lead, and only solidified that with a composed 66 at the Home of Golf.

He impressed throughout the tournament, posting only three dropped shots across the four days.

A prize-fund of roughly £612,000 will now be headed to the Englishman, comfortably the biggest pay-out of his career.

Here is the moment that the 24-year-old claimed his first European Tour victory.

The win had been on the cards for Hatton after a very successful summer; he finished second at the Scottish Open, fifth at The Open and tenth at the US PGA Championship.

Hatton’s triumph did not come without competition, however.

Ross Fisher and Richard Sterne (-19) both kept close to Hatton, ensuring he had to keep utmost concentration to hold onto his lead.

Hatton seemed unfazed and, despite a bogey on the 17th, made par on the 18th meaning Fisher and Sterne would have to settle for second place.
