Monday Memories: Willett's Wonder shot

Despite the outcome of The 2016 Ryder Cup not going in Europe's favour, debutant Danny Willett had a moment to remember at Hazeltine National.

Willett arrived in the United States as the World Number Ten and the current holder of the Green Jacket. With four victories on the European Tour in less than two years, Willett had truly earned his place on Darren Clarke's team.

An opening day defeat to Brooks Koepka and Brandt Snedeker in the company of Martin Kaymer was a disappointment, but Willett's moment was just around the corner.

Alongside compatriot Lee Westwood, Willett took on JB Holmes and Ryan Moore in the Saturday fourballs. It didn't take long for the Englishman to make his mark.

Out of position at the second hole, Willett floated a perfectly weighted chip onto the green and watched it run into the hole. Cue a Willett fist bump and huge roars from the European contingent.
