DANNY WILLETT

Danny Willett has enjoyed a memorable 2016 in capturing his first major – but it sure isn’t ending in the same fashion.


The 29-year-old, who won The Masters in April, finished some 22 shots behind Turkish Airlines Open winner Thorbjorn Olesen, with only seven players – including three Turkish amateurs – finishing below him in the leaderboard.

It meant the Englishman – who cashed €9,223 – barely made any inroads on Henrik Stenson’s Race to Dubai lead and, in the midst of some swing changes with coach Pete Cowen, he admitted that he’s seriously struggling at the moment.

“It just comes and goes, couple of good days and couple of bad days.” Danny Willett told Alex Miceli of his problems. “To be honest I don’t really want to be out there playing golf.

“It couldn’t happen at a worse time. Things are just not going our way, nothing feels that great.”

In his 14 events since triumphing at Augusta National back in April, Willett has managed just two top tens – third at the BMW PGA Championship and runner-up at the Italian Open – and disappointed on his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine, failing to score in his three matches.

Willett had also contemplated skipping this week’s Nedbank Golf Challenge to try and iron out the problems with his game and also took to Twitter after his final round 75 in Antalya to say golf was ‘kicking him in the nuts’ at present.

And he received some backing from Ryder Cup team-mate Sergio Garcia.
