Was that the best Masters ever?
Less than two weeks ago, Danny Willett was sitting at home unsure whether he was going to tee it up at the 80th Masters. But with his baby born 11 days early, Danny had a couple of lessons on Friday and Saturday, arrived at Augusta on Monday evening (the last competitor to do so), played a couple of practice rounds before going out to claim his first Green Jacket, the first European to do so in 17 years. A true fairy-tale.
Willett started the final day three back from Spieth, who looked to be cruising with a four-under-par front nine to take him to seven-under, five clear of the field. From there it looked like a mere formality for the American, destined to pick up his second Green Jacket in as many years. But the pressure proved too much. A poor tee-to-green week for Spieth was compounded with bogeys on 10 and 11, followed by a quadruple on the 12th, blowing the tournament wide open.
Whilst Jordan was faltering, Willett, a few groups in front, was going about his business to card a five-under-par 67 - his only sub-70 round of the week - to win by three. What a Masters!
