Watch Willett implode on final hole to squander PGA Tour victory

The Englishman was four-feet away from a first PGA Tour win since 2016 before disaster struck in Napa. Warning, viewer discretion is advised
 

Golf can be cruel. Just ask Danny Willett. The Englishman was just four-feet away from a first PGA Tour victory since winning the Masters in 2016 before the stuff of nightmares transpired on the final green at the Fortinet Championship.

One ahead of Max Homa and dialled in close on the 18th at Silverado, it looked as if the first PGA Tour event of the season could be handed to Willett there and then. That was before the most insane finishes took place in California.

Off the green and needing a miracle, Homa sent the gallery berserk when he hammered home his pitch for birdie to leave everything on his English playing partner…

Then, the horror show began. With one hand still on the trophy, up stepped Willett to seal victory from four-feet before the most relatable, gut wrenching scenario unfolded. Warning, viewer discretion is advised…

One of the toughest watches we’ve ever seen as Willett three jabbed from four-feet to miss out on the playoff.

As for Homa, the American couldn’t believe his luck as he awkwardly watched on to retain the Fortinet Championship.

Willett’s wait for a second PGA Tour win now continues, but ever classy in defeat, the Englishman offered this graceful response following the mighty collapse.

“Disappointing way to finish, but you know, first event of the season, to be in contention, things are in a good place.” Willett said. “We’ll live to fight another day.

“[It’s] just a shame how I finished, but that’s golf. We’re going to do it again another day.”

Remember that one next time you implode in your monthly medal.
