Fantasy golf began last week at the Masters where Danny Willett took the green jacket for his first major championship and became the leading point-scorer after week 1 on 607 points.
Willett’s bogey-free 67 left him on 5-under-par to win by three.
Jordan Spieth and Lee Westwood both finished T2nd and earned 517 points.
Spieth was leading by five going into the back nine but bogeyed 10 and 11 before making a seven on the par-3 12th to all-but end his Masters hopes.
There’s still time to sign up for week 2 where you can win a Cobra S/S cap.
The prize for the month is a Cobra Tour Bag and Rickie Fowler’s Sunday outfit at The Masters.
