Tools Of The Trade: Danny Willett’s Winning Clubs At The Masters

Danny Willett mounted an unorthodox Sunday charge at Augusta National to win his first Masters on Sunday. En route to a bogey-free, 5-under par 67, the Englishman didn’t look to have enough until a quadruple-bogey seven by then-leader Jordan Spieth transformed Willett from the chaser to the chased. The 28-year-old new father played the last six holes in 3-under par to claim his first major title.

Willett’s iron and approach game were a big key in his success this week. Despite making only 13 birdies, his bogey-avoidance was off the charts thanks to solid iron play. He hit 48 of 72 greens in regulation and only found greenside bunkers twice all week.
