Danny Willett Masters Champion

Willett make a difference? How Danny’s great win will help young people to ‘Start, Learn and Stay’ in golf

We are all working together to help young people through the gates of a golf club.

The Golf Foundation supported Danny Willett’s golf learning as a youngster through the work of ace Sheffield PGA coach Peter Ball, who set Danny on his path to the Green Jacket. 

Danny will be thinking ahead to the U.S. Open and our Open Championship and it is certain surely that the great spirit, the ‘Skills for Life’ and the brilliant play he exhibited at Augusta will have inspired many, many youngsters to say to their parents, “Can I try golf?” 

The Foundation has a goal of helping 50,000 young people annually to experience golf at a golf facility with the help of a PGA Professional by March 2018. 

Latest figures show that with two years to go we are on track to achieve this goal with just under 40,000 young people passing through the gates of a golf club to enjoy the benefits of golf – a significant 21% increase on the previous year.
