Willett joins PGA Tour

Home

The PGA Tour confirmed on Monday that Masters champion Danny Willett has officially joined the US tour. 

The Englishman emerged from the chasing pack to earn a three-stroke win at Augusta, his maiden major victory.

Upon Willett's entry, he receives a five-year PGA Tour exemption and 600 FedEX Cup points for his victory at the Masters.

The world number nine will also receive 44 retroactive FedEx Cup points for his T28 finish at the Valspar Championship earlier this year.

As a result, Willett is currently in 27th place in the FedEx Cup and should he remain in the top 125 until the end of the season, he will be eligible to compete in the season-ending FedEx Cup Playoffs.
