PGA golfer Danny Willett was searching for his first ever major championship at Augusta National on Sunday, and the 28-year-old Englishman was fortunate his first child decided to arrive early.
According to Sky Sports, Nicole was due to give birth to the couple’s first child on Masters Sunday. Danny had said that he would not play in the Masters if his wife gave birth during Masters week, but she ended up having a C-section a couple weeks early.

“People are very small-minded to think that a golf tournament is bigger than the birth of your first child,” Willett said in March.
Perhaps that is why Willett played so well on Sunday. When you have your first kid, the game of golf probably seems insignificant. That may have helped him relax. I mean, who wouldn’t when you know you are going home to this?
