Willett wins Masters after tough game with Spieth

Willett wins Masters after tough game with Spieth

USA

Danny Willett took advantage of a shocking back-nine meltdown by defending champion and runaway leader Jordan Spieth to win his first major title by three shots at the Masters last Sunday.

After earning the coveted green jacket, Willett expressed surprise that he was able to win by three.

Willett’s participation in the masters had been doubted few weeks back as he was involved in family preparations to welcome a baby boy.

Spieth, bidding for a second consecutive wire-to-wire win at the Masters and a third major title, had to settle for a share of second place.

Willett is a four times winner of the European tour and was competing in his second masters.
