English golfer Danny Willett fired a brilliant 67 at the Masters on Sunday, capitalizing on a historic meltdown by 2015 Masters Champ Jordan Spieth to win his first major just 10 days after the birth of his first child.

But who cares about that? The real story here is Danny Willet’s brother, PJ, who won the internet on Sunday with a brilliant live-tweeting of his brother’s Masters win. And on “Siblings Day,” no less.

PJ, a teacher and author who lives in Birmingham, kicked off his Masters coverage with a little jab at Jordan Spieth’s pace:

That one caught everybody’s attention. By the end of the day Danny Willett’s brother had over 14,000 followers and thousands upon thousands of retweets.

Take a look:

By the end, PJ became aware that his Twitter feed was blowing up.

So he came up with the perfect tweet to sum up an insane day:

That was one hell of a performance. Unfortunately, “winning Twitter” is more of a bragging rights sort of thing. Unlike his brother, PJ Willett will not get a Green Jacket and $1.8 million in prize money.

More people might buy his book, though. There’s a link to it on his Twitter.
