In the first World Golf Championship of the year, Britain’s players did not fill us with hope for when they are put against the rest of the world in next year’s Olympic games.
With each of the world’s top 50 players in action at the Cadillac Championship, the best British players were tied 12th in Lee Westwood and, Race to Dubai leader, Danny Willett, which does not bode well for Rio next summer.
Willett carded a last round of four-under, pushing him up the leaderboard on the last day, increasing his Race to Dubai points in the process, keeping his place at the top under pressure from the returning Rory Mcilroy in second place. The Northern Irish player having played three less events than Englishman Willett, but hot on his heels.
The golfers will be going back to their respective tours next week, in South Africa and Florida, wanting to improve on their performances this week.
With only four weeks until the first major of the year, the British players will be wanting to get their games in shape in time for Augusta to try and win that famous green jacket.
