Willett Secures Maiden Win On European Tour!

25/06/2012  
In his 106th start on the European Tour Callaway staffer Danny Willett secured his maiden win in style by winning a dramatic play-off to lift the BMW International trophy in Cologne, Germany.

It took the 24 year old Englishman four holes to claim victory over Marcus Fraser. standing on the 16th tee Willett needed two pars to force a play-off at that stage, and that appeared unlikely when he drove down the right at the 18th and the ball bounced off a cart path and behind a tree. He scrambled to make his par and force a playoff.

After making the final putt Willett said: “This is my fourth year on Tour now,” added Willett. “I've had a lot of good finishes, been in contention a couple of times, obviously with Kaymer at the Dunhill a few years back. To polish it off, it feels good.

“Ideally I would have won earlier but probably winning a bit later on now, it gives me a little bit more to think about and I’m probably a little bit more mature now than I was when I first came on Tour. It would have been good to win a few years ago, but a win is a win.

“The guys out here are brilliant. They play week in, week out, and it's competitive. I'm just thankful for finally winning one.”

“It’s amazing,” said the former Walker Cup star. “It was a tough day - it was brutal with the wind whipping and it was raining. Marcus had a great round today and I hung in there nicely. Hopefully I gave people a good show."

Here is what was in Danny's bag:
Callaway RAZR Hawk Driver (Proto, 9.5%deg;)

Callaway X Utility Proto (21°)
Callaway RAZR X Muscleback irons (3-9)
