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.
"It's a week that's got gradually better as it's gone on,"
"I hope it's good enough to get me in the US PGA,"
