Hatton didn't feel Fisher's galloping footsteps behind him until he was nearly home, and it stiffened his resolve for the final two holes. "We've just had good fun, I think that is what this tournament is about".

A product of Randpark, Michael was introduced to the game at just three years old by his father and grandfather but played all the sports, and as a youngster achieved provincial colours for soccer and national colours for baseball. "A shame not to birdie the last for a 60, but I'm not going to complain too much with a 61".

What a great round of golf from Fish, it's wonderful. "I got off to a fast start and made some early putts". He also did enough to secure his card for next season.

The Harleyford Golf Club member entered the final day's play with a five-shot lead and extended his bogey-free run to 55 holes - the longest stretch of anyone at an event in 2017 - to finish three shots clear of the field. At that point he was on cruise control.

Fisher carded seven birdies on the front nine and hit four more successive birdies from the 12th to stand at 11 under, but fell short of the magical figure as he parred the final three holes. Hatton also took advantage of the 14th.

This week saw Rory McIlroy drive the 360-yard 18th on the Old Course - a hole that should post a stern test with out of bounds all down the right and the famous Valley of Sin protecting the front-left.

Trump offers to compare IQ tests with Tillerson
The president is scheduled to sit down for lunch today with Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis at the White House. Mr Trump also took to Twitter to deny the story last week, writing: " Rex Tillerson never threatened to resign".

Speaking afterwards, Hatton said: "I didn't see a leaderboard on the back nine until the 16th green, when I saw he (Fisher) was at 21 (under) and I was thinking how well he was going". At the same time, though, we surely don't want to see great courses being constantly overpowered and that, I'm afraid, is exactly what is happening on the Old Course in particular these days. At the home of golf I wanted to try and give that putt on the last a try for 59 and just came up a bit shy.

Yet although Fisher made history, he was only second for the second year in a row, and it was Hatton who took the £595,000 first prize, taking his winnings in this event in two years to a cool £1.2 million.

English trio Oliver Fisher, Eddie Pepperell and Luke Donald joined Dunne and Alexander Levy on 13 under, while McIlroy mixed two birdies with two bogeys to end the week in a share of 63rd spot. "It's absolutely brilliant to win the Team Championship for a third time".
