Masters winner Danny Willett is a Liverpool supporter

New, comments

Danny Willett is the 2016 Masters champion after shooting a 67 on Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club to capture the green jacket. It's the Englishman's first career major championship. What's this got to do with Liverpool you're probably asking yourself while reading this. Well, it turns out that he himself is a Liverpool supporter.

This tweet from from him was sent to the main Liverpool FC Twitter account on the day of the Captial One Cup final:

The 28-year-old was born in Sheffield, but apparently is a Red. He'll be joining a long list of famous Liverpool supporters after his high profile triumph at the masters. The Liverpool FC Twitter account even follows him, so you know it's 100% legit.

It's always good to see anyone who supports Liverpool doing great things. Surely the club will do something nice for him in the wake of his green jacket win...
