Masters champion Danny Willett has joined the US PGA TOUR following his breakthrough Major victory earlier this month.

In a media release on its website, the US PGA Tour confirmed the Englishman would use his five-year exemption through to 2021:

“The 28-year-old will receive a five-year exemption that runs through the 2020-21 season along with 600 FedExCup points from his win in Augusta National.

Willett’s non-member FedExCup points (44) from a start at the Valspar Championship earlier this year also become retroactive and his total of 644 FedExCup points moves him to 27th in the standings entering the Valero Texas Open. Willett does not receive retroactive FedExCup points for his three 2015-16 World Golf Championships starts, as per US PGA Tour regulations.

If Willett is inside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings after the Wyndham Championship, he will be eligible to compete in the FedExCup Playoffs.

On the 2015-16 season, Willett has three top-10 finishes with five made cuts in five starts. He is currently No.9 in the Official World Golf Ranking.”
