Danny Willett

1. Danny Willett

Age: 30
Country: England
Playing on: European Tour

Why: His five European Tour titles show that, obviously, he's a far better golfer than he showed in 2017. Doesn’t go into this year with the pressure of defending Masters title and he started working with Sean Foley in August, with the impact of that likely to start bearing fruit in the months ahead.
