Danny Willett will waste no time in looking to build on the momentum of his fine performance at The Open as he tees off in Switzerland this morning.

And he does so at a tournament where he has been consistently strong during his career, the Omega European Masters.

The Sheffield golfer – who finished tied sixth at St Andrews last weekend – has earned two top ten places in the Swiss event as well as six cuts made overall.

All eyes will be on Willett’s group this morning, fresh from his strong weekend at The Open.

He tees off at 6.55am alongside Worksop’s Lee Westwood and reigning Omega Masters champion David Lipsky.

American Lipsky is looking to become the first man to retain the title since Seve Ballesteros, who redesigned the Crans-sur-Sierre course in 1995.

Willett’s fellow Sheffield golfer Matt Fitzpatrick is also in action at the tournament, looking to put behind him the disappointment of failing to qualify for The Open.

Fitzpatrick – who tees off at 11.35am alongside Soren Hansen and Gregory Havret – was let down by his third round at the Scottish Open a fortnight ago but has shown good form over the last few months.
