Willett secures Masters berth
England’s Danny Willett is going to the Masters for the first time after receiving a bit help from the world ranking formula.
Willett, who recently won the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa, is at No. 51 in the world in this week’s ranking. The Dubai Open on the Asian Tour ended Sunday as the final official golf tournament of the year.
Willett did not play, but because points are gradually reduced at differing rates in the world ranking formula, Willett will move up to No. 50 in the final ranking of the year that is published December 29.
The top 50 at the end of each year earn invitations to the Masters, which boasts some intriguing golf betting odds.
Willett will finish narrowly ahead of compatriot Tommy Fleetwood who missed the cut in the Dubai Open.
