Danny Willett's brother wins over £2000 after Masters bet

Published Add your comment

Danny Willett may well have secured Masters glory on Sunday evening, but his brother well and truly stole the show on social media. 

Willett, of course, became England's first Masters champion in 20-years after hitting a final round of 67 to secure the title by three shots. 

Jordan Spieth, last year's Masters winner, looked all but set to claim the honour once again, but he endured a torrid period as he placed two balls into Rae's Creek at the 12th, racking up a quadruple-bogey.

28-year-old Willett, then, held his nerve to claim a memorable triumph. However, his brother, Paul, was also producing the goods last night...

Indeed, Paul Willett became a Twitter superstar as his brother managed to get over the line and claim the Green Jacket.

Social media 

Unsurprisingly, Paul could hardly contain his excitement throughout and made his feelings clear on social media. 

Paul's a teacher by trade, but it's safe to say that he's a comedian by night.

Here are some of his best tweets: 

Big win 

And, of course, he had a little flutter on his brother winning at Augusta. With odds of 55/1, as per the Daily Mail, Paul placed £30 each way to claim winnings of over £2000. 


Crazy time 

Following the tournament, the new Masters champion admitted that the experienced had been a 'crazy' one, claiming that it had been his day.  

The Masters - Final Round

"It's been crazy," said Willett, as per BBC Sport. "You can't really describe the emotions and feelings.

"We all try to play good golf and someone has to win. Fortunately today it was my day. It was a very surreal day when you look back at the ebbs and flows."

Frustrated Spieth

Spieth, on the other hand, has lambasted a 'lack of discipline' on his part but insisted that he doesn't doubt his ability to close major tournaments. 

"It was just a lack of discipline coming off the two bogeys instead of realising I was still leading the Masters by a couple of shots," said Spieth.


"I have no doubt about my ability to close majors, I just think it was a very tough 30 minutes that hopefully I don't experience again."
