2016 - Week 14 Winner

Danny Willett (ranked 9th by Golf Predictor) won the first major of the year, The Masters (European/US PGA Tour). The 28 year old Englishman won his first major after the dramatic collapse of the defending champion, Jordan Spieth. After a fairly unexciting first 63 holes, the tournament came alive on the back nine on Sunday when runaway leader Spieth bogeyed the tenth and eleventh holes before quadruple bogeying the short twelfth. That calamity catapulted Willett into the lead and the Sheffield man finished with aplomb to take the title. Spieth made a mini comeback and had a chance to catch Willett with a strong finish, but it was not to be. An emotional Willett took the title just a week after welcoming his first child into the world. Had the baby arrived on time, Willett would not have played at all! Our top ranked player, Jason Day, didn't fire on all cylinders, but still finished in tied 10th place. Overall, we had nine of the top seventeen plus ties (9/20).
