Danny Willett says he has found life in the public eye “tricky” since winning the Masters in April.
The 28-year-old Englishman, who won his first major at Augusta in April, is preparing for the US Open at Oakmont, which starts on Thursday.
Willett will play alongside 2011 winner Rory McIlroy for the first two rounds.
He said: “The last couple of months, I can’t remember a practice session or a tournament that’s not being filmed or where a microphone is not nearby.”
After winning the opening major of the year, victory for Willett at Oakmont would put him halfway to becoming the first man to win all four major tournaments in a calendar year.
“I am relatively surprised that no-one has done it, but for the rest of the time I’m going to be playing golf, I honestly can’t see it happening too much, just purely because of the strength and depth of the field,” he said.
Willett expects ‘fun’ with McIlroy
Willett has played only three times since the Masters – missing the cut at the Players Championship, sharing 23rd place at the Irish Open, and finishing third at the PGA at Wentworth.

Nelson Mandela once said: “A critical, independent, and investigative press is the lifeblood of any democracy. The press must be free from state interference. It must have the economic strength to stand up to the blandishments of government officials. It must have sufficient independence from vested interests to be bold and inquiring without fear or favor. It must enjoy the protection of the constitution, so that it can protect our rights as citizens.”
