Masters champion Danny Willett says Muirfield voting to admit women members for the first time is a “great thing”.

Members at the privately owned golf club voted 80.2% in favour of updating its membership policy on Tuesday.

Golf’s ruling body, the R&A, removed Muirfield as a host venue for the Open Championship after it chose to maintain the ban in 2016.
