World’s number 12 Danny Willett celebrates number one baby!

ROTHERHAM golfer Danny Willett’s wife teed up a new member of the family just in time to avoid the star of the fairways missing out an appearance at the US Masters.

The world number 12 had said he would skip this year’s Augusta tournament as Nicole was due to have their first child.

But the timely arrival of little Zachariah James Willett came just in time for Danny to fly out to the USA and take part in this weekend’s tournament.

Nicole was initially due to give birth this Sunday — the final day of the prestigious Masters tournament.

But Danny’s agent Chubby Chandler revealed that she was scheduled for a C-section last week, but Nicole and the new baby were home by last Wednesday.

And Danny flew out to the States this week, ready to tee off yesterday at the course where he tied for 38th last year.

“Mum and baby doing awesome,” he said.
