Tyrrell Hatton was on the verge of his third straight win at the Dunhill Links Championship.

And then it all fell apart.

After turning in 4-under 32, Hatton held a five-shot lead with just nine holes to play at the Old Course. For a player who’s won the last two editions of the Dunhill, Hatton’s lead seemed like a lock. But bogeys on Nos. 10 and 11 started a nine-hole tailspin, leading to a 4-over 40 and an even-par 72. His four-day score of 14 under was one off the pace of Lucas Bjerregaard (-15).

Afterwards, the 26-year old Englishman wrote on Twitter: “Well that back 9 super sucks!!! Tried my best but couldn’t seem to do much right!”
