"Just fantastic scenes to be able to see him and his family in Butler Cabin, and how I imagine that would have looked the year before when obviously I was there," Willett said Tuesday. "When it happens to yourself, you don't really remember it. It kind of happens a bit quick, and it's all a bit of a blur. To actually see the joy that it can give, not only to one person but to an entire family, it was beautiful to be there and to share that little moment."
"We've had two fabulous years and when you have a bit of a downturn, it feels like the world is coming to end," said Willett, who became the first reigning champ to depart early since Mike Weir in 2004.
