The Masters Champion is joined by wife Nicole and baby son Zachariah before he enters the field of play for his special moment.

Willett, who has three missed cuts in his last 7 tournaments, is aware of the rut that can follow a player’s first major win.

“It’s time to move on a little bit from what we did in April. It was fantastic and it’s changed my life, but we need to get back to the kind of form that we took into that week and hopefully then move forward.”

Danny seems to get no respect across the atlantic, which is a shame because he’s now a very respected player in Europe. Inevitably there will be a lull after such a high, but I think only a fool would think Danny Willett is a one-hit wonder.
