Hatton copes with jet lag to lead CJ Cup at Shadow Creek
NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Tyrrell Hatton had everything going against him except his golf.
He was tired from a 20-hour trip from London. He was grumpy for lack of sleep. And then he tied the course record at Shadow Creek with a 7-under 65.
That gave him a one-shot lead over Xander Schauffele and Russell Henley in the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek.
It helped that Hatton got off to a hot start. He holed out a wedge from 92 yards on his third hole and played the opening five holes in 5 under. Hatton is coming off a victory last week at Wentworth.
