New Masters Champion Danny Willett shares his best bunker, putting and iron play tips, takes on our putting challenge and answers some funny quick-fire questions.


We at Golf Monthly recognised Danny Willett as a potential star of the future many years ago – we first put him on the cover of the magazine back in 2008!

And so it came to be as the man from Sheffield won the 2016 Masters title and slid on that famous green jacket following a flawless display of golf, assisted by Jordan Spieth’s back nine collapse.

We’ve also filmed some great videos with him through his equipment sponsor Callaway that not only help to get to know him better, but should also help improve your game. First up, he shares some of the drills he uses to improve his distance control when putting from long range.

So flawless was his golf, Danny Willet didn’t go in many bunkers on Sunday at Augusta but should he have done, his technique would have stood him in good stead. Below he shares the key points of his method that make him such a proficient bunker player.

Cat or dog? Batman or Superman? Night club or night in? In the video below we discover the lighter side of Danny Willet through these quick fire questions.

Now for a closer look at the swing that won the Green Jacket. Willett is coached by Pete Cowen and Mike Walker and has become one of the most consistent ball strikers in the game.

Finally, the new Masters Champion takes on our four-hole putting challenge on the practice putting green at Wentworth. Fair to say his putting has come on leaps and bounds since this was filmed!
