Alfred Dunhill Links Championship: Danny Willett receives perfect birthday present with victory


Recommended Posts

Englishman Danny Willett gave himself the perfect 34th birthday present with victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The former Masters champion went into the final round at St Andrews with a three-shot lead and carded a 68 to win by two from fellow Englishman Tyrrell Hatton, who led after day two, and Joakim Lagergren of Sweden.

"It's magical," Willett said of his eighth European Tour win. "On British soil, with everyone here. It's been a great week."

Willett was briefly caught by Richard Bland but four birdies and only one bogey on the front nine put him in a strong position.

And despite another bogey on the 10th hole, he kept his nose comfortably in front to finish on 18 under at the Old Course.

Hatton and Irishman Shane Lowry produced good performances following the disappointment of Europe's Ryder Cup defeat.
