Danny Willett will be making the trip down Magnolia Lane. Willett's wife gave birth to a boy, Zachariah James Willett, he announced on Twitter.

The Englishman's Masters appearance was briefly in doubt, but Willett's agent, Chubby Chandler of International Sports Management, said in an email last week that Willett's wife, Nicole, was scheduled for a C-section this week. Her due date was April 10, Masters Sunday.

Willett, currently No. 12 in the Official World Golf Ranking, will be making his second Masters appearance. He finished T-38 last year.
