    I think his Master's win was, in a way, a bit early for him and definitely unexpected.
    He's always been a decent player but never that good if you get me...
    Another in the same vein as Poulter
    Amateur world no 1? Poults was an assistant pro, like homer. World of difference. Scuppered by a dodgy back.

    I think Wilett had a purple patch culminating in his extroadinary masters win. He has now gone back to his normal level. The antics of him and his brother at the last ryder cup left a bad taste so not sure how well received he is in america which won't be helping his mental state.

    Re: What next for Danny Willett?

    Not the first to find playing both sides of the Atlantic difficult and seem a dip in form. Come back, get a stable life and solid coaching, enjoy family life and find some form on the European tour. When the kids are a little older, think about relocating and make a decision. He seems a nice guy from what I've seen and heard and I'd like to see him get back to form and kick on again
