Lagos – Danny Willett, former Masters Champion has admitted he has endured an “utterly ridiculous” period since his victory at Augusta and at times, “just didn’t want to play golf.”
The Sheffield-born golfer picked up his first major title when he pipped Jordan Spieth to the Green Jacket in April 2016.
Since then, however, Willett has endured a terrible run of form and injuries that have seen him lose his PGA Tour card and become the first reigning Masters champion since 2004 to miss the cut at Augusta.
The 30-year-old is currently ranked No 66 in the world and in a revealing online blog, he lifted the lid on his struggles in recent months.
“There have been quite a few low points over the last few months. At the end of 2016 I was in contention in the Race to Dubai and I just didn’t want to play golf. Think about that. It’s utterly ridiculous,’ he wrote on the European Tour website.
“I had entered the HSBC Champions in China, Turkey, Nedbank and Dubai – four of the biggest tournaments of the year – and I didn’t want to play. I just didn’t feel good enough to compete.”
