Willett’s support of the charity at last year’s Betfred British Masters helped raise £25,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, including a £19,000 donation from title sponsors Betfred after his performance at the four-time Ryder Cup host venue, with £1,000 donated for every birdie he made on the famous Brabazon Course.
Betfred have again pledged to donate £1,000 for every birdie and £2,000 for every eagle made by Willett this week. The tournament’s title sponsors will also donate £50,000 to Prostate Cancer UK on behalf of the first professional to record a hole-in-one on the famous par three 14th hole on the Brabazon Course – the same hole that Sir Nick Faldo famously made an ace at the 1993 Ryder Cup.
