Englishman Danny Willett got his week off to a flying start in Perth with a sky dive over picturesque Rottnest Island, Western Australia.
Arriving in Perth on Saturday, Willett took a few days off to explore the state, starting at 10,000 feet.
It wasn’t the typical start to a tournament week, but being in town for the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth, Willett wanted to experience a day in WA.
“It was amazing. Us golfers don’t really get to do loads of really exciting things most of the time, so yeah, I’ve done it before in Dubai, but over Rottnest Island out of a chopper at 10,000 feet was something pretty special,” said Willett.
“It was just a fantastic way to start the week and really get a great sense of what there is on offer down here in Western Australia.”
While the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth tees off tomorrow, Willett will still be having fun with the stroke play /match play hybrid tournament providing something different to the usual 72 hole stroke play.
“I think it was part of the reason we’ve come down here, because of the format and because of where it is, and obviously where we’re at within our game to come and really enjoy what is a very different week,” added Willett who is coming back from a shoulder injury.
“To actually come and really enjoy, try to interact with the fans a good bit. The fans in Oz are always great.
“We’ve kind of started it the right way, had a couple of days really enjoying the local area around Perth, and then kind of back to business again yesterday and today and getting used to the golf course for tomorrow.
Willett will be in action tomorrow at 12pm, teeing off the 1st alongside Australian Wade Ormsby and Dane Thorbjorn Olesen.
