Danny Willett joins PGA Tour

April 19, 2016

Newly crowned Masters champion Danny Willett has joined the PGA Tour following his shock victory at Augusta, it was announced.

The 28-year-old Englishman has been given a five-year exemption which will allow him to play on the tour until the 2020-21 season, the PGA tour said in a statement.

The world number nine was also handed 600 ranking points in the FedExCup for his Masters triumph earlier this month.

Willett needs to finish in the top 125 in the FedExCup standings to gain entry to the lucrative end-of-season FedExCup Playoffs.

Willett was ranked outside the top 100 as recently as November 2014 but on April 10 became the first Briton since Nick Faldo in 1996 to win the green jacket.

Willett was a surprise victor on the final day in Augusta, snatching the title after a spectacular collapse by defending champion Jordan Spieth on the back nine.
