LAST YEAR: Danny Willett of England took advantage of Jordan Spieth‘s back-nine collapse in the final round by closing with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 67 to claim his first major title by three strokes over Spieth and Lee Westwood, also of England. Spieth, the defending champion, held a five-stroke lead after making birdies on the last four holes of the front nine. However, he started the back nine with two bogeys, and on the par-3 12th hole at what is known as Amen Corner, he hit two shots into Rae’s Creek to card a quadruple-bogey 7 en route to a 73. Willett, who made birdies on the 13th and 14th holes, was stunned to learn on the 15th hole that he was in the lead, and he added a birdie on the 16th hole. Westwood, who has finished in the top 10 in 18 majors without winning, got close with an eagle on the 15th hole, but he followed with a bogey and closed with a 69.
