Player Profile: Lee Westwood
Westwood is a Ryder Cup veteran and will tie Sir Nick Faldo’s long-standing Ryder Cup appearance record as he makes his 11th appearance on Team Europe. Since making his debut at the 1997 Ryder Cup, Westwood has earned 23 points for his team and won the Ryder Cup on seven occasions – and will no doubt be looking to add to that at Whistling Straits.
After featuring as a Vice Captain at the 2018 Ryder Cup, Westwood went on to win twice starting at the 2018 Nedbank Golf Challenge – a Rolex Series event on the European Tour – before picking up a second Rolex Series victory at the 2020 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship before ending the year as Race to Dubai Champion. This year, Westwood has collected three second place finishes.
