TYRRELL HATTON has revealed how he rescued a LIV team-mate at a Sin City hotel.
The English golfer stepped in when whizkid Caleb Surratt struggled to book in for the night at a Las Vegas establishment.

The American faced one of the problems when checking in under-age when touring in his home country – even as an elite sports competitor.
Luckily for Surratt, now, 19, his Legion XIII team-mate Hatton was on hand to help him out.
Hatton and Jon Rahm were mega-money signings for the Legion line-up of LIV rookies, which also includes Zimbabwean Kieran Vincent.
The team launched the season perfectly – with victory at the first event in Mayakoba, Mexico.
But after that success, Surratt got into the rough away from the course when he tried to get in some vital rest in Vegas ahead of the second tournament.
“So once I finished checking in, I wandered over to make sure he was OK.
“As I got there, the lady checking him in said that he needed someone over 21 to be on the reservation to allow him to stay in the room.
“I had to hand over my driver’s licence to make sure he had a bed for the night.”
But the hotel hiccup is unlikely to bother Surratt – as he is focused on his much brighter bigger picture.
Having been Walker Cup amateur player just last September, he is now a pro starring for LIV’s newest team – with Hatton and Rahm to assist his development.
Bunkered report the North Carolina teenager as saying: “You go from moving out of your dorm room to competing with the best players in the world.
“And having two of them truly being your daily mentors on the golf course, it seemed like a big opportunity for me and my golf game.
“I have no doubt that this is what was best for me and my golf game and the future of my professional career.”
