Lee Westwood has renewed his contract with Dunlop just ahead of the US PGA Championship 2016.
This time there is a special bonus on offer for Westwood from his major sponsor and it amounts to £2 million. This bonus will be Lee’s only if he lifts any of the four major PGA titles.
Danny Willett has been pelted to be England’s richest golfer ever after his historic and dramatic Masters win.
Danny was anticipated to mesh up to £5 million in off-course profits in the next 2 years after getting just the 2nd Englishman to sport the desired Green Jacket.
The 28 year old had won over £9 million in prize money already before his maiden major win that took him more than the £10 million mark. There is still a very long way short of Lee Westwood, the Sunday’s runner-up, who is England’s top earning player having collected over £37 million in winnings.
American professional Golfer Jason Dufner and his famous wife Amanda Dufner, have finally reached a divorce settlement.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Dufner is a part of the PGA Tour where he is a three-time winner. He won his major championship title in 2013 at the PGA Championship in August with a two-stroke victory at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
Lee Westwood is surely passing through a great stage at the moment- the great golfer has recently clinched triumph at Indonesian Masters, that marked a hat-trick win for the golf champ.
The win came post his playoff victory and he beat Thai golfer Chapchai Nirat to claim the win at Indonesian Masters this time.
The erstwhile # 1, who won the Indonesian Masters both in 2011 & 2012, could just muster a last round of 1-over-par seventy three for a 7-under 281 total- letting slip one overnight advantage at Royale Jakarta Golf Club.
Former world number one English professional golfer Luke Donald confirmed that he will play in next month’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open along with US Open champion Martin Kaymer at Royal County Down.
Englishman Lee Westwood had always known that Ulsterman Darren Clarke, with whom he was part of the second most successful pairing in the history of the Ryder Cup, would one day go on to skipper Team Europe.
But now that he has been handed the role, Westwood is wondering how he will handle the change of having to call his friend 'gaffer' instead of 'partner', as he has done for so many years.
Lee Westwood is a professional golfer from England who is a member of both the European Tour and the US PGA Tour and is one of the most well known and respected golfers of his time.
The Englishman is a very consistent player and he is one of a very few golfers who has won tournaments across every major continent, having won numerous titles on both the major Tours. He has earned three Player of the Year gongs in his career, two of which came in 1998 and 2000 with the third coming in 2009.
The last time that the Americans had won Ryder cup was in 2008 and Europeans have won seven out of the nine times the event has been held. The guys like Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Sergio Garcia consider most of the important event as road games.
What would be the scene if Americans too took part regularly. If they participated in most of the events such as go Argentina to compete against Angel Cabrera or to Spain to fight against Miguel Angel Jimenez or Japan to go against Hideki Matsuyama. Obviously it would not be nice.
American golfer Dustin Johnson has told his future father in law Wayne Gretzky that his hiatus from golf will be the making of him and it will make him a better and more responsible person altogether, and by extension, a better and more professional golfer as well, according to Gretzky.
Gretzky was speaking to a Canadian radio channel recently where he made the comments regarding his future son in law who has had a troubled couple of years due on to on and off field problems.
Before the PGA Championship began, Adam Scott had made it clear that he wanted to make sure that he performs well in the tournament so that he can give tough competition to Rory Mcilroy who is at the moment the Number 1 Masters Champion.
However, Scott had also asserted the fact that Mcilroy surely deserved the number 1 position since Mcilroy had won three major tournaments. While on the other hand, he had just won one major event. Therefore he really wanted to play well in the PGA Championship.
