Our Blogs > Danny Willett - Top 15 Finish At The British Open
Former FirstPoint USA client Danny Willett had a fantastic 2013 British Open championship finishing in tied 15th place only 9 shots off eventual winner and fellow American golf scholarship recipient, Phil Mickelson. Understanding the importance of education, Danny signed to FirstPoint USA in 2005 and was placed at the impressive Jacksonville State University.† While studying towards his degree, playing golf in Jacksonville State University's†fantastic facilities, he was Ohio Valley Conference freshman of the year. He also won medal honours in 2007 at the OVC championship and was all-conference award winner and all-tournament team member in both 2006 and 2007. After graduation Danny turned professional in 2008 joining the European Tour and soon started moving up the world rankings. He made the cut at the PGA Championship in 2010 and won his first European Tour†tournament, the BMW International Open, in 2012. The highlight of his career so far has to be The Open Championship this past weekend.† On the unforgiving Muirfield course, four rounds of †75, 72, 72, and 71, gave Danny an overall score of† 6 over par. He picked up a cheque of £62,250 for his efforts.
