TYRRELL HATTON has gone viral after his X-rated meltdown at The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.
The English golfer, 30, saw a putt seemingly destined for the hole – and a birdie on the par-three third – drift wide.
Unable to hide his frustration, Hatton let out an anguished cry – even dropping the F-bomb.
A furious Hatton could be overheard on the Sky Sports camera, desperately shouting: “Are you f***ing kidding me?”
The world No16 threw his arms in the air in frustration as commentators apologised for the bad language.
In a hilarious video on Twitter, ex-European Tour pro John Hawksworth gave his own running commentary of the missed putt.
Hawksworth – talking in between fits of hysteria – said: “If you’ve ever played golf for a living, you’ll completely understand what he’s on about!”
But Hatton’s outburst split golf fans down the middle – with some praising his down-to-earth style as others criticised his foul language.
One fan tweeted: “Can we just get a mic on Tyrrell full time? The sports subscription would be well worth the money.”
Another wrote: “Just brilliant @TyrrellHatton don’t change.”

But one fumed: “Hatton an embarrassment to his profession and the worst role model, young children could follow!
“Serial effer & jeffer and needs sanctioning for it from all tours!”
And another claimed: “I don’t find this funny or amusing.
“It’s time both tours fine this silly t***. Not acceptable on the course at any time.”
In a weather-affected tournament in Florida, Hatton only managed to finish his third round on Sunday – with the 18 holes spread over two days such was the disruption.
Despite his miss on the par-three third, Hatton carded a strong round of 69 to leave him five shots off the pace.
The Englishman ultimately finished tied for 13th following a two-under-oar final round – seven shots adrift of winner Cameron Smith.
The Australian hit a superb -6 on the final round to finish -13 for the tournament, one shot clear of India’s Anirban Lahiri and two ahead of England’s Paul Casey.
