Danny Willett's fantastic win at the Masters has seen him (and his brother) shoot into the spotlight in a huge way, which comes with a number of perks. 

One of the bonuses of winning the green jacket is that he can now claim a place on the PGA Tour, an offer he decided to take up on Monday.

Given the win at the Masters, Willett is also likely to be headed to the FedExCup, one of golf's richest prizes.

He is currently 27th in the standings for that tournament - his 600 points for the Masters win, coupled with 44 he picked up at the Valspar Championship earlier this year, means he will more than likely be eligible to compete in the FedExCup Playoffs.

Willett has also risen to ninth in the world rankings as a result of his win, and is having a pretty good 2016 by any measure.
