Masters champion Danny Willett believes good conditions for the US PGA Championship will be a pleasure to play in at Baltusrol.

The Englishman is preparing for the final major of the year in New Jersey before looking ahead to the Olympics in Rio with the Great Britain team.

Since claiming the first major title of his career at Augusta, Willett has struggled in the biggest tournaments after a disappointing US Open and a 53rd-place finish at The Open.

Conditions are set to be far nicer stateside than at Royal Troon in Ayrshire earlier this month and Willett is looking forward to playing with the sun on his back.

“Out of all the majors the US PGA is usually the fairest because the weather doesn’t usually play a massive factor,” he said.

“It’s a good time of year, the weather is pretty good and the golf course set up isn’t ridiculously penal like a US Open. The scoring is usually pretty decent so it’s more like a regular PGA Tour event and that’s why you see a lot of guys who predominantly play over there compete in them.

“It will be nice to get a bit of sun on your back and get out of swinging it like you’re in 30mph winds off your back foot.”
