RSS

A lot of perks will be coming Danny Willett's way now that he is the Masters champion, and on Monday he decided to become a PGA Tour member.

Willett gets a five-year exemption thanks to his first major championship victory. He will be a Tour member through the 2020-21 season.

The 28-year-old also gets 600 FedEx Cup points for his win. He can retroactively tack on 44 points from his T-22 finish at the Valspar, but he cannot add points from his starts in three WGC events in the 2015-16 season, per PGA Tour regulations.

Willett is now ranked 27th in the FedEx Cup standings. The top 125 after the Wyndham Championship qualify for the playoffs.
