Danny Willett is looking forward to spending quality time with his wife Nicole and his newborn baby boy Zach, following his astonishing victory at Augusta.

The Sheffield-born golfer said he would be locking away his clubs in a cupboard for two weeks to give himself a proper break from the sport.

After what's just happened there'd be no point in clipping a few just yet, you'd not really be focused on what you were doing.

I'm more bothered right now making sure these two are alright, and just trying to be a dad and a husband again.

– Danny Willett

On his duties as a new father - namely nappy duty in the middle of the night - he said: "It brings someone shouting back down to Earth when you're changing nappies at two in the morning."

Expressing her pride at Danny's achievement, Nicole said: "Words can't really describe, when you see him on the TV it's strange because he's just Danny to me and his family, and watching him on TV and seeing him win the Masters it was just ridiculous."

Danny said he "didn't quite realise how big a deal" his win would be, until he returned home to crowds of supporters and reporters keen for interviews and pictures.

"We are going to lock the door, and try and savour the moment", he added.
