Danny Willett: “I have real good ball control”

Danny Willett was delighted to put himself in a solid position and raise £5,000 for Prostate Cancer UK as he got his week hosting the 2021 Betfred British Masters off to a positive start.

“It was good, real good ball control, gave ourselves a lot of chances. Didn’t quite take as many as we would have liked and then obviously a bit of a poor finish – the mind went wandering a little bit which was a shame. Nice enough position with three rounds left. I maybe didn’t quite get out of the 17th quick enough and then with the tee box forward on 18, there is a decision there. It could easily be three wood, probably should have been three wood, and then I just got right in the middle of hitting two shots and hit the wrong one. It’s an alarming number, really,” he said. “You don’t really ever hear about it a great deal or really hear anything or how people go about it so it was just more raising awareness of it. Of course in this day and age to raise awareness you need to get out there and money always helps. Betfred have obviously been very generous this week for the birdies and eagles and obviously the £50,000 if anyone has a hole-in-one on 14. It just seemed to fit at the right time in my life, the age I’m at, 33, you’re coming up to that (age) when you’ve got to start looking after your body and really taking care of your health and making sure that you’re in a fit and good way”.
