Former Masters winner Danny Willett has advised new Open champion Shane Lowry to be "selfish" when it comes to approaching the next 12 months as a first-time major winner.

"Take some time off. Spend it with your family and friends, enjoy what you accomplished," was the advice. "You need to enjoy it and then get yourself back and refocused and try to press on."

Willet's joint sixth at The Open was his best major finish since his Masters win in 2016, which remains the high point of his career.
