Being the reigning Masters champion comes with a few perks. One of those is that you get to wear the famous green jacket whenever and wherever you want.

This year's winner Danny Willett has already made good use of his time with the iconic blazer. This week he took it for a spin in the Royal Box at Wimbledon, where he and his wife watched top-tier tennis alongside Jack and Barbara Nicklaus. Nicklaus posted a photo of the scene on his Instagram.

Willett, like all Masters champs, gets one year with his jacket before it must be returned to Augusta. Unless, of course, he wins again next year.

Willett's wardrobe apparently failed to earn him an express pass through security, however. Check out his friend Lee Westwood's tweet below.

 

Enjoying Wimbledon today with Barbara and our friends including 2016 Masters champion Danny Willett in his Green Jacket. Our business travels often bring us to other corners of the world but we are always so proud to be Americans. Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July.  #wimbledon
