Home sweet home, says Danny
Regular rounds with friends at the Thrybergh course and plenty of ‘banter’ mean that Willett can relax while playing the sport that has earned him his living.
Speaking at a press launch in Rotherham ahead of his Masters debut in Georgia, he said: “Playing at Rotherham Golf Club does help keep your feet on the ground and I was out there the other day with a few close friends. We play for a little bit of money sometimes and I get beat by the lads sometimes and you get a lot of banter flying.
“You walk in the club house and no one bats an eyelid, you can go in for a drink, play a round of golf, have another drink and have a chat to everyone, then go home.
“It brings you back to reality, which is a contrast to when you’re at events and you’re getting dragged every which way to do bits and bobs. You don’t really get much time to just sit on your own."
