Hatton, Fitzpatrick remain tied at DP World Tour Championship


Tyrrell Hatton and Matthew Fitzpatrick continue to be tied for the lead at the halfway stage of the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.

The duo ended the day on 12 under par after matching second round scores of 67 to lead Sweden's Alex Noren and Dubai-based Spaniard Adri Arnaus by three shots going into the weekend.

Meanwhile, world number one Rory McIlroy is back in contention thanks to a four under par round of 68 which included a stunning eagle on the closing hole to trail Hatton and Fitzpatrick by seven strokes.

Hatton, who is looking to win his fifth Rolex Series event, says he's happy with where his game is at and that he is looking forward to the weekend.
