Despite winning the 2016 Master Tournament, English professional golfer is the same senior citizen he was. Although he has become famous and people are crowding for his autograph, he did not let the fame get to him.
"You can't go and have a nice quiet drink with the missus and stuff. At nighttime, you get people asking for pictures, autographs. It comes with the territory. You can't really complain about signing a few autographs and taking a few pictures because you've just won the Masters. No, I mean, coming back down to reality was literally the first day you get back home, you open the door, [wife] Nic's there, and the dog jumps up and licks you and you got your little man to change. So that was straight back down to reality, just being a dad and a husband"– ESPN
Winning a Green Jacket has made him a name known worldwide but has not relieved him from being who he really is. In the end, he did not let it get to him. His family is same as they were before winning the trophy.
“I spoke to my mum on the phone after I just won and I’ve obviously seen my parents since but we don’t really talk golf,” he said. “It’s very much the conversation that happens within the family. It is far from talking about golf and stuff, and far from talking about one person’s achievements.”
And the green jacket is Danny Willett's!
