US PGA Championship 2011 - Lee Westwood

PGA Championship Lee WestwoodEnglishman, Lee Westwood, comes to the PGA Championship in good despite struggling recently at the British Open where he missed the cut. Westwood has come close to winning a Major a number of times down the years but so far has not been able to manage a win in one of the big tournaments.

In total he has had 11 top ten finishes in Major Championships, four at the US Open, four at the British Open and two at the US Masters; and just the one in the USPGA. His best finish to date was 3rd back in 2009; he did not play last year due to injury. He has a career total of 35 professional wins and is one of the few golfers in the world who has won on every tour. Lee has also done an excellent job as a starring member of the European Ryder Cup Team over the last decade so is capable of playing under pressure.

Playing Style

Lee is one of the biggest hitters off the tee in the world and has great accuracy. His weakness was clearly his short game, but he has been working with former professional, Mark Roe and the improvement has been instant; hence his excellent results in the last couple of years.
