Lee Westwood began his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season with a trio of top-20 finishes and is 36th in the FedExCup standings.
While the recent returns are looking good for the Englishman on the PGA TOUR, his Official World Golf Ranking has been on a steady decline over the past two years. When he began his 2013 campaign, he was inside the top 10 in the OWGR. He faded outside of the top 40 following the end of his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season and is now ranked 42nd. Given he is now 41 years of age, it's reasonable to expect that his days of being an elite player are coming to an end. Dec 6 - 8:50 PM

Lee Westwood carded a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Westwood hit a week-high 12 greens in regulation at Sheshan International today. Lo and behold, the increase of scoring opportunities yielded his lowest score as well. He traded five birdies with two bogeys. The latter set included a stinging 6 at No. 18 where he walked off to sign his card. With respective rounds of 70 and 73 already on the board, the Brit is 4-under 212 through 54 holes and just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard at last check.

Lee Westwood opened the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a 2-under-par 33-37=70 to establish the early clubhouse lead.

The Englishman went out with the second threesome off the 10th tee at Sheshan International Golf Club today. After four pars, he buried an eagle at the par-5 14th hole. He'd get it to bogey-free 4-under through 11, but squared two bogeys thereafter. Westwood is gunning for his third consecutive top-15 finish worldwide and fifth top 20 in his last seven. He's a two-time runner-up on this week's host track, so expectations are reasonable that he'll contend again.

Lee Westwood toured Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club in bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the CIMB Classic.

The Brit opened with an even-par 72, so he needed to put it into high gear if he was going to make a run at the title. He opened birdie-birdie at Nos. 1 and 2, and then added a third at the par-3 eighth from short range. At the next par 3 -- the 226-yard 11th -- Westwood wielded a hybrid and holed the tee ball for an ace. (For the vid, click on the link below.) After waiting out the weather delay, he closed birdie-par-birdie and sits just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Lee Westwood fired a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Frys.com Open and joins Scott Brown in the clubhouse lead at 10-under 278.

Coming off the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, Westy circled eight birdies and squared three bogeys on his final lap around Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course. Three of those birdies fell from between 11 and 18 feet. Considering the Englishman scored just two top 10s and six top 25s in 2013-14, this is a welcomed start to the new season.

Lee Westwood and Jamie Donaldson disposed of Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar 2 and 1 in foursomes action at the Ryder Cup.

Donaldson and Westwood improve to 2-0-0 in the foursomes format and 2-1-0 overall with the win. The par 5s were the difference in the match, as the Euros won each of the three. Kuchar has been the victim of both of the European duo's wins, also losing in the second session while partnering with Jim Furyk. Kuchar falls to a dismal 0-3-0 at Gleneagles and ZJ is now 0-2-0. The Europeans extend the overall lead to 7½-5½with three matches still on the course.

Lee Westwood will lean on his experience this week at Gleneagles for the 40th Ryder Cup.

Westwood is arguably the most out of form golfer in the field, as he's failed to earn a top 10 since May at THE PLAYERS. European backers will hope experience wins out this week, as he enters the week with an 18-13-6 career Ryder Cup record in eight appearances. If you look a little closer you'll see that Westwood is a disappointing 4-5-3 over the past three editions. Given his lack of form and misleading career record, Westwood has an uphill battle ahead of him this week.

Lee Westwood will participate in his ninth Ryder Cup thanks to receiving one of captain Paul McGinley's three picks.

Westwood failed to climb out of the first round of the FedExCup Playoffs, but he's a stalwart in the competition, having donned the European colors in every edition since 1997. This year's at Gleneagles in Scotland on Sept. 26-28 will be his ninth. "I’m obviously delighted," he said. "The Ryder Cup has always been a massive thing for me and I was delighted to get the call from Paul. It was a long day yesterday but when Paul rang with the good news I was relieved. I’ve played a lot better in the last month and a half and I’ve been showing some form and giving Paul a reason to pick me. I’m delighted and honored to be representing Europe again." Westwood is 18-13-7 overall and a member of six winning squads.

Lee Westwood begins his assault on the FedExCup Playoffs at The Barclays this week.

The Englishman has failed to produce, relative to his lofty standards, for much of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season and finds himself 107th in the FEC standings. The good news is, he seems to have righted the ship with a T19 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and a T15 at the PGA Championship. A similar finish this week at Ridgewood Country Club could allow him to make a deeper run in the Playoffs.

Overnight co-leader Lee Westwood faded to a 1-over-par 34-38=72 in his second round of the PGA Championship to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, four strokes off the 36-hole lead.

He went just 3-for-13 in birdie opportunities, including a conversion from 15'4" at the par-3 third hole, but Westwood played a four-hole stretch on his inward side in 4-over to thwart a red number. The stumble started with a double bogey at the signature par-4 13th. It concluded with a bogey-5 at 15, where he rinsed his tee ball, and a three-jack for bogey from 32'2" at the par-4 16th. He found some luck early in the round, however, holing out for par from the rough six yards away at the par-4 second.

Lee Westwood smoothed a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of the 96th PGA Championship to assume outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

He's coming off consecutive missed cuts in the majors for the first time since 2003, but you wouldn't know it by today's effort. He hit 14 greens in regulation and converted for birdie nine times. Five of the par breakers measured at least 13 feet, the longest dropping in for a walk-off from 40'2" at the par-4 ninth hole. At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip sat at 3.028. Westwood birdied five of his last six, including each of the last four. He penciled in 4s on each of the three par 5s. The Brit also squared a bogey-5 at No. 15 and a 6 at the par-4 first, but he's in as good a position as possible to finally wrangle his first victory in a major.
Aug 7 - 1:25 PM

Lee Westwood crafted a bogey free 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to end his week at 4-under 276.

The Englishman hasn't been in his top form this season, but seven birdies and 11 pars at Firestone CC on Sunday have him poised to put something special together in the PGA Championship next week. Four of those birdies came from between 13 and 24 feet, which is out of the ordinary considering the struggles he's had with his flat stick over the years. He is currently on the outside looking in relative to the European Ryder Cup team, so anything he can do to impress captain Paul McGinley over the next few weeks is a major plus.

Lee Westwood begins his 2014 Open Championship having missed his last three cuts in 2014.

Following a T35 at the BMW PGA Championship, Westy missed the weekend at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, U.S. Open and Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. Perhaps that won't matter, as his history in this event is extremely strong, but it has to be a little disconcerting for those in the veteran's camp. He's cracked the top three in three of the last five Opens, including last year. His only visit to Hoylake resulted in a T31 back in 2006.

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.

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.
