Tyrrell Hatton's decent start to 2019 continued with a respectable tied 19th finish in the WGC-Mexico Championship at the Chapultepec Golf Club in Mexico City at the weekend.

Hatton began the tournament well over the first couple of rounds but ran out of steam over the weekend to finish just inside the top 20.

The former Great Marlow School student eventually finished 16 shots behind winner Dustin Johnson, who in turn beat Rory McIlroy by five shots for a comprehensive victory.

Although perhaps disappointed to finish like he did over the weekend, Hatton did get the honour of pairing with his idol and arguably the greatest golfer in history, Tiger Woods on Saturday.

Hatton will be having a break this weekend, missing the Honda Classic in Florida before returning for the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Country Club the following week.

The 27-year-old is spending the next couple of months in the States as he warms up for another crack at the US Masters at Augusta National in April.

With back to back top 20 finishes secured, Hatton will be hoping his form is spot on heading into the season's first Major as he bids to win for the first time since winning the Italian Open in the autumn of 2017.
