(Reuters) – New Masters champion Danny Willett of England has joined the PGA Tour following his triumph on Sunday at Augusta National in the year’s first major championship, the tour announced on Monday. The 28-year-old Willett will receive a five-year exemption on the U.S. tour that runs through the 2020-21 season on the strength of his stunning three-shot victory for his maiden major. Willett, who has five career wins on the European Tour, has also won this season’s Dubai Desert Classic.
