Danny Willett's brother live tweeting the final round was nearly as good as the golf itself

Brotherly love.

NOBODY ENJOYED DANNY Willett’s unlikely Masters win more than his brother.

As the Englishman carded a bogey-free final round and capitalised on Jordan Spieth’s epic back-nine collapse, PJ Willett was providing a running commentary on Twitter.

And he became a bit of star in his own right with some brilliant tweets which encapsulated the drama, tension and euphoria of a Masters Sunday.

The evening started with some mocking, born out of frustration no doubt.

But as the complexion of the leaderboard began to change, so too did Willett’s mood.

And as his brother headed down the home straight, the reality of the situation began to sink in in the Willett household.
