Danny Willett wears his green jacket to Wimbledon because he can

July 04, 2016

Danny Willett's dream year continued with a trip to the Royal Box at Wimbledon's Center Court on Monday. The best part? The reigning Masters champ was able to show up in style with his favorite piece of clothing.

Pretty boss.

A Masters winner is allowed to take his green jacket away from Augusta National until the next year's tournament. Then, the coveted coat is returned to the champion's locker room.

Willett was on hand to watch 17-time major champ Roger Federer beat Steve Johnson in straight sets to move into the quarterfinals. Golf also came up during the Federer match during NBC's coverage quite a bit as 18-time major champ Jack Nicklaus made a trip to the booth. Of course, the Golden Bear was asked about the tennis legend -- as well as a certain injured golfer's pursuit of his record.
