Masters champion Danny Willett is confident he can rediscover the magic touch this weekend when he returns to Switzerland to defend his European Masters title (Willett 12/1 – Tournament Outright).
The 28-year-old has enjoyed a whirlwind 12 months ever since he won the event last year by also claiming the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the Masters at Augusta National back in April.
However, since winning the Green Jacket, Willett has been unable to maintain his form and his best finish came at the BMW PGA Championship when he was third.
The Sheffield golfer (28/1 to win the Masters in 2017) finished 79th at the US PGA Championship and 37that the Olympic Games, but he is now determined to head into the Ryder Cup in better form.
Although his game has been below-par in recent weeks, the world number 11 believes a return to a familiar course will help him rediscover his form.
He told Sky Sports: “I love this week. It’s been a crazy 12 months and this win last year really kick-started my little effort back in Europe. I finished sixth at The Open and then came here and won and didn’t really look back after that.
“Unfortunately I finished second in The Race to Dubai, but then I came out this year, won in Dubai and then the Masters.
“It’s been a pretty epic 12 months and the golf hasn’t been fantastic over the last two or three months, but I’m just trying to get everything back on track now.
“I’m working really hard and hopefully coming back to a place I like and feel comfortable on, hopefully I can have a good week here.”
