After a top-5 finish in The Open Championship and his first European Tour win at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in St Andrews, in 2016, the 26-year old from Marlow, Buckinghamshire, defended his title the year after and confirmed his strength with a third victory the following week at the 2017 Italian Open.

“I’m excited to be part of the Audemars Piguet family”, said Tyrrell. “I really admire the brand, its watches and everything it stands for. They are pushing the boundaries of their art to the next level, just what I’m trying to do every day out on the course.”

The Englishman will be joined by two American youngsters, Patrick Cantlay and Wesley Bryan.
