Did you see the video of Tyrrell Hatton alongside the 18th green at Wentworth holding aloft the BMW PGA Championship trophy, mixed with the image, 23 years apart, of him standing in the exact same spot as a five year old boy? It was brilliant!
Apparently Tyrrell's mother had sent it to him the morning of the final round. His Dad would bring him to the event every year when he was a kid. And what just worked so well after the final putt was sunk was that, even though there were no crowds present to roar and cheer, Tyrrell Hatton's Mum and Dad were there live on a video link from their sitting room sofa to congratulate their son. A down to Earth working class family chatting; an insight you rarely see amid the glamour and pamper of Tour life.
The final round was a continuation of Hatton's super play all week around Wentworth. Sporting a hoodie look that had everyone chatting on social media, on an empty Wentworth late in the season when he often finds his best game, Tyrrell was truly a man at ease. A Sunday 65 on cruise control sealed the deal, with Victor Perez in his wake, and others playing snakes and ladders on the leaderboard.
And maybe there's a little metaphor in Hatton winning in silence, with just his parents on a screen waiting to congratulate their son. 2020 has been a tough year, but if there is one good thing to come out of it, it is the renewed realisation of the importance of family.
