AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – Well done, Englishmen. Sheffield’s Danny Willett on Sunday joined three-time winner Nick Faldo as the only Englishmen to capture a Masters championship.
Danny Willett has become the first British golfer to win the US Masters for 20 years after Jordan Spieth imploded in the final round at Augusta. The 22 year old defending champion led by 5 shots as he approached the 10th hole but then dropped 6 shots in 3 holes allowing Willett to take advantage as he carded a superb 5 under par 67 final round to win by 3 shots from fellow Englishman Lee Westwood. Spieth eventually finished on 1 under alongside a cluster of players including Paul Casey and Dustin Johnson. Afterwards,Willett said that the victory had been “crazy”.
