Tyrrell Hatton found it surreal when he looked at golf's world ranking and saw himself at a career-high No. 5, above the likes of Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.

"I don't see myself as anything special," the Englishman said on Tuesday. "Just going about my business, doing my own thing."

A golfer once best known for his loud and often self-deprecating outbursts on the course is now better regarded as a proven winner on the European Tour.
