Danny Willett’s best shots as he won the title

“Swing and Abyss” was the headline in USA Today, summing up an American verdict that the story of the 80th Masters was Jordan Spieth’s extraordinary back nine meltdown.

Yet taking this view ignores a performance worthy of major glory from a player who was ready to win at the highest level. Danny Willett’s triumph was no fluke.
