Lee Westwood hoisted the hardware in 2010 and returns this week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
TPC Southwind is the site of Westwood's latest PGA TOUR victory. His attempt at a title defense yielded a T11 in the 2011 FedEx St. Jude Classic, and he hasn't returned until this week. The Englishman has won three times since, on the European Tour, including the most recent just six weeks ago at the Maybank Malaysian Open. Good form and good course history converge this week, making Westwood a valuable asset in all formats. Jun 4 - 12:12 PM

Lee Westwood signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to nab a top-10 finish at 9-under 279.

The Englishman surrounded a bogey at the par-3 eighth with birdies at seven and nine after six pars to start his round at TPC Sawgrass. Birdies at 11 and 14 had him charging, but a bogey at the par-4 15th and the inability to par the easy par-5 16th stalled his round. He ranked outside of the top 25 in GIR, putting average and strokes gained for the week, so relatively speaking he scored his ball very well.

Lee Westwood managed a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the third round of THE PLAYERS and enters the finale inside the top 10 at 7-under 209.

The Englishman was solid early in the day, circling three birdies and an eagle to just two bogeys over his first 12 holes, before playing his final six with four pars and two bogeys. Among the highlights were an eagle from 3'10" at the par-5 second and an 11'7" birdie at the par-4 sixth. He was two strokes off the clubhouse lead, and five off the real-time lead, at the time of his posting. It will take a big final round for him to walk away a winner.

Lee Westwood followed his opening 67 at THE PLAYERS with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 to post 6-under 138 at the midpoint, six strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Brit was the first from today's late draw to assume a position near the top of the leaderboard after 36 holes. Unfortunately, he's not higher. Westwood traded four birdies with three bogeys, the first of which a three-jack form 48 feet at the par-3 13th hole. Three of his par breakers disappeared from outside 18 feet, the longest measuring 28'9" at 10, his first hole of the day. So, in one aspect, he should be disappointed that he didn't make hay, but given the distance of his conversions, he should also feel fortunate.
May 9 - 5:40 PM

Lee Westwood carved a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, good for early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Westwood disappointed gamers at Quail Hollow last week, but the faithful were rewarded today. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens en route to five birdies. He opened birdie-birdie at 1 and 2 to generate momentum. Birdies at 6, 12 and 16 followed, the last two measuring 10'9" and 11'4", respectively. He's posted top 10s in two of his last three trips to TPC Sawgrass, so it would have been surprising if he didn't rekindle some form today.

Lee Westwood failed to parlay converging trends at the Wells Fargo Championship, missing the cut by two strokes.

The Englishman was fancied in most formats this week what with a win in Malaysia in his last start (April 20) following a solo seventh at the Masters, and top fives in the last two editions of the WFC. However, while he converted an eagle-2 (at the 14th hole in his second round) and eight birdies, he squared seven bogeys and three doubles (all on Friday) en route to 3-over-par 71-76=147. He'll try again at next week's PLAYERS where he tied for eighth last year. Other notables that failed to make the cut at Quail Hollow include: 146--Jonas Blixt; Jeff Overton ... 147--Seung-yul Noh; Chris Stroud; Bo Van Pelt; Nicolas Colsaerts ... 148--Jimmy Walker; Nick Watney; D.A. Points; Darren Clarke; Robert Karlsson ... 149--2011 champion Lucas Glover; Will MacKenzie; Jamie Donaldson ... 150--K.J. Choi; Padraig Harrington; Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño ... 151--2009 champion Sean O'Hair; Russell Henley; Matt Jones ... 153--Chesson Hadley.

Lee Westwood breezed to a seven-stroke victory at the Maybank Malaysian Open.

Westwood posted 18-under-par 65-66-71-68=270 for an outright wire-to-wire triumph over a trio of runners-up in Nicolas Colsaerts, Louis Oosthuizen and Bernd Wiesberger. The Brit missed 17 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to three bogeys and a double. He was bogey-free in the finale at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. "It’s a golf course that suits my game," Westwood said. "It’s very tight in certain areas. I played well, I putted well, and the short game is good." This is his first victory anywhere since the 2012 Nordea Masters. It also secures a berth in this summer's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Lee Westwood turned in a 1-over-par 38-35=73 in the final round of the Masters and is the first man in the clubhouse at 1-under 287.

The Englishman struggled early, with a bogey at the par-4 third and a double bogey at the par-3 fourth hole. He spent the rest of his afternoon battling back, circling four birdies to just two bogeys over his final 10 holes. He is safely inside the top 10 at Augusta National Golf Club, guaranteeing himself a spot in the 2015 Masters and also nabbing his first top 10 if the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season.
Apr 13 - 6:25 PM

Lee Westwood posted a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Masters to remain in the hunt at 2-under 214.

Westy has notoriously spent his career chasing his first major championship title, and his four birdies to just two bogeys on his third lap around Augusta National Golf Club have him lurking. With the leaders struggling to pull away, he finds himself just one off the clubhouse lead and four behind Bubba Watson in real time at the time he signed his scorecard. A low round on Sunday will position him to steal the green jacket.

Lee Westwood makes his way back to the Golf Club of Houston for this week's Shell Houston Open.

The Englishman enters the week 131st in the FedExCup standings, very disappointing for a golfer with his cachet. The Golf Club of Houston could be just what Westwood needs to kick-start his 2014 campaign, as he's enjoyed top-30 finishes here in each of the past five years.

Lee Westwood carded a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of The Honda Classic.

It started inauspiciously when he fanned on a 35-inch par save at the par-4 10th hole, but he was blemish-free thereafter, picking up six birdies against no bogeys the rest of the way. His most notable par breakers dropped in from 15'3" and 12'4" at the 12th and fourth holes, respectively. It's his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he scored the same in the second round of the 2012 BMW Championship. Westwood sits 7-under 133 at the midpoint at PGA National, four swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Lee Westwood begins his World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship as the eighth seed in the Ben Hogan Bracket.

Westwood faces a hot Harris English in his opening match. Should the Englishman advance, he would likely face Rory McIlroy in round two. Westy isn't flashing top form of late, snaring just one top 20 in his last three starts. While he's had his share of first and second round exits over the years, he did manage a fourth-place finish in 2012.
Feb 17 - 9:11 PM

Lee Westwood has twice played at Torrey Pines, but returns for just his second Farmers Insurance Open.

Westwood missed the cut in this event back in 2004, but enjoyed plenty of success in the 2008 U.S. Open played on Torrey Pines South. He finished third, behind only Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate. This week will feature three rounds on Torrey Pines South and one on the North.
Jan 21 - 8:51 PM

Lee Westwood embarks on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a return to the old, as he rekindles his relationship with former caddie Billy Foster.

Westwood is hard at work trying to find the right formula to put the exclamation mark on an otherwise outstanding career by winning a major championship, and Foster was the man on the bag when the Englishman rose to the top spot in the Official World Golf Rankings. The original breakup occurred when Foster injured his knee in 2012, but friction off the course led Westy to take a break that extended past Foster being declared healthy. You'll remember Westwood moved his family from England to Florida ahead of the 2013 season, so he continues to put all of his eggs in the basket of winning, and winning now. He is currently 40 years old.

Lee Westwood blew up for a 9-over-par 40-40=80 in his opening round of the BMW Championship.

Mr. Bubble Boy at 30th in FedExCup points is off to the worst kind of start at Conway Farms. He failed to convert on all eight of his birdies chances today and signed his card with a strokes gained-putting split south of -4.620, worst in the field. After his round, he alerted his followers that he's dealing with pain, which helps explain his score. Westwood wrote: "Well shouldn't really play injured but everybody wants to play the tour championship. Give it a night to see if my neck & back settle down." This makes him a unwise investment on Friday, but don't rule him out to advance to East Lake. There's no cut this week.
