Willett: Lots of drink, little golf since Masters win

Danny Willett is optimisitic of a positive showing at this week's Players Championship despite claiming to have "drunk more" and played only 27 holes of golf since winning the Masters.

Willett, 28, became just the second Englishman to win the Masters four weeks ago, as well as the first European in 17 years.

Initially planning to take a family holiday after Augusta until TPC Sawgrass, Willett instead spent most of his time fulfilling media requests and taking selfies in his Green Jacket - not that he would change it. 

"The reaction's been cool," he said. "Obviously it's a very iconic thing, the Green Jacket."

"Most times you get a trophy that comes with a poster a few weeks later and it goes in the trophy cabinet in the house, and it's nice and you look at it every now again and again, but obviously the jacket because you can wear it, it's just different."

But with 27 holes of practice under his belt in the space of a month, on top of missing the cut in his only start at the Players last season, Willett knows it will take some effort to land consecutive wins on Tour.

"I’ll approach it the same as I approached Augusta, as I approached the week before that, and do the bits I can do and take care of my little jobs every day," he said.

"Then hopefully if you do all that you can hopefully shoot some good numbers."
