Tyrrell Hatton has never been one to keep his feelings to himself — whether is four-letter-wording himself after a rare poor shot, alarming greenskeepers with equipment abuse that would make Nick Kyrgios proud, or lambasting the course itself (just as poor old Augusta and Yas Links — Abu Dhabi).
The self-confessed “angry golfer”, who is playing the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth this week in the DP World Tour’s flagship Rolex Series event, showed his Mr Hyde side once again on Thursday, but the target of his wrath this time around was a little bit different.
Watch as a member of the Surrey wildlife gets on the wrong end of a Tyrrell tirade:
"I hate wasps!"

Yep, even wasps are not safe out there when Hatton is on the course.
Mid-swing on the par-3 fifth at Virginia Water, the Englishman, who is set for his fourth Ryder Cup at the end of the month, had to take a step away and then take a swipe at the pesky interloper. He then composed himself but found the rough, forcing him to have to work hard to save par — that wasp did not show its face again.
Still, I am sure Hatton was more contented when he came off the 18th to sign for a four-under 68 and is firmly in the hunt for what would be a second title at Wentworth — wildlife beware!
