Tyrrell Hatton is back on British soil and preparing for a crack at the British Masters this week at Hillside Golf Club in Southport, Merseyside.

Hatton has been mainly based in the USA for the first part of 2019, gearing himself up for the US Masters at Augusta by playing a string of tournaments on the other side of the Atlantic.

After a fairly steady spell without winning, Hatton has a great opportunity to secure his first win since the autumn of 2017 when he won the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and Italian Open back-to-back.

Hatton, 27, has played in a Ryder Cup since then, emerging victorious in Paris in September last year but has slipped down to 38th in the world rankings.

With Hillside being a links course, Hatton will be one of the favourites to win the the coveted title this week, with such a strong record at links venues over the past few years.

He will be up against fellow Englishmen, Tommy Fleetwood, last year's winner Eddie Pepperell, Matt Wallace and Lee Westwood who will all provide strong competition to Hatton.
