Sheffield golf star Danny Willett is set to lay on a "vomit-inducing" dinner for fellow players - topped off with bottles of city favourite Henderson's Relish.

Danny, who shot to fame after winning the US Masters last year, has the job of laying on the Champions Dinner meal for players ahead of this year's tournament - and tradition dictates the winner serves up dishes reflecting their heritage.

And Danny's famously outspoken brother Pete has suggested that the 2017 menu should be as 'vomit-inducing' as possible.

Pete Willett wrote a light-hearted piece in the National Club Golfer where he implies Danny might combine Scandinavian-inspired dishes from their Swedish mother along with a Sheffield twist to represent their hometown.

Calling Danny a renowned host, Pete jokes: 'Danny could give a nostalgic nod towards his upbringing, whilst simultaneously poisoning a number of his direct competitors.

'Danny, through years of misfortune, has built up a staunch resistance to what could be his secret weapon – our Swedish mother’s cooking.

'For starters, a delight from her homeland: hard boiled eggs smothered in a pungent fish roe.'

Pete describes the dish as a 'claggy cold mush' combined with the 'musky saltiness of something squeezed out of the end of a fish'.

'This dish is likely to cause illness in at least a third of the attendees,' he adds.

Pete goes on to suggest equally unappetizing mains and desert, along with a splash of famous Sheffield sauce Henderson's Relish for taste.

Danny will be selecting the menu that his fellow players eat from, including front-runners Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.

Pete caused controversy last year when he launched a twitter attack on 'brainless American cowards' before the Ryder Cup.

Pete continued his rant comparing Americans to 'pudgy, basement-dwelling irritants, stuffed on cookie dough' leaving Danny to distance himself from his brother's comments.

The 2017 tournament tees off on Thursday, with Willett ranked as an outsider by bookmakers at 125/1 to repeat last year's triumph having struggled this season.
