DANNY WILLETT | BBC SPORTS PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR

Danny Willett saw the funny side after he finished dead last in last night’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year vote.


The 29-year-old, who was shortlisted after becoming the first British winner of The Masters since Sir Nick Faldo in 1996 earlier this year, amassed only 2,227 votes throughout the evening.




That was some 245,192 behind winner Andy Murray and, although Willett enjoyed his night, he woke up this morning to find out where he’d come in the final reckoning.







While Willett saw the funny side, others weren’t quite as impressed at the show, which infamously overlooked Rory McIlroy for the top gong in 2014 despite two major wins and playing a pivotal part in Europe's Ryder Cup victory at Gleneagles.




But Lee Westwood, a good friend of Yorkshireman Willett, perhaps showed as much care for SPOTY as what golfers and golf fans should - spending the night of the ceremony at Alexandra Palace for the Darts World Championship!
