The Willett family produced two champion performances on the final day at the Masters.

Just because PJ Willett was sitting on the couch watching the telly with an ale in his hand, doesn't mean he was outdone by his Masters champion brother Danny Willett on a famous day at Augusta National.

Willett, the second-youngest of four sons, shot a final round 67 to surge past Jordan Spieth in an emotional rollercoaster.

The 28-year-old Masters champion credits his older brothers for motivating him to play the game of golf because it was the only sport he could beat them in. In many ways the win belonged to PJ, just as much as the man wearing the green blazer.

The pure drama of the day was perfectly captured in PJ's tweets.

The older brother live-tweeted the final day's play and he was clearly the true winner of the Masters.

Nobody was safe from the Englishman's enthusiastic tweeting as his brother climbed from a tie for fifth at the start of the final round into outright first and the iconic green jacket.

He even mocked dethroned champion Jordan Spieth as the American choked on the back nine to hand his sibling Masters glory.

You could feel the tension and emotion build in every new offering of 160 characters or less.

It had everything.

There were tweets that put his brother's triumph into context:



There were tweets revealing the brutal anxiety of the moment.




There were tweets sticking it to former champion Spieth.


There was also plenty of brotherly love.



What a ride.

That's how you win the internet, just ask him about it.
