It has been revealed that Masters champion Danny Willett made a generous donation to the family of a dying South African girl to help them with medical costs and expenses.


At the Nedbank Golf Challenge in early December, Willett was switching the Christmas lights on in Sun City as the previous year’s champion and met four-year-old Sune Klopper, who was suffering from cancer.

And South African golf journalist Michael Vlismas said that the Englishman donated R100,000 (£4,783) to help Sune’s family with their medical costs. However, she sadly died just two weeks after they met.
