Golf’s world number three Lee Westwood is hopeful that he will be able to making a good run at the upcoming US PGA Players Championships, which is scheduled to be held between the 10th and 13th of May at the TPC Sawgrass.
He is full of confidence that he will be able to outshine all the others in the playing field and his confident is stemming from the fact that he finished the last two rounds of the Wells Fargo Championship extremely strongly and is hopeful that he will be able to carry that momentum into the US PGA Players Championship.
Before entering the final two rounds of the event at the Quail Hollow Country Club, Westwood was at one under and he only missed the cut in the end by only a single stroke thanks to the strong finish in the last two rounds, in which he carded a 68 and a 66, which charged him up the leader board and in the end, he was just three strokes behind Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and D.A Points, who went into the playoff round. And it is this performance in the last two rounds at the Quail Hollow that is making Lee Westwood hopeful of a win at the TPC Sawgrass, often considered as the unofficial fifth Major in the golfing world.
Furthermore, the last time that Westwood played in the US PGA Players Championship in 2010, he finished the event at T-4 and he has three top three finishes in nine starts at the event already.
Speaking to the media ahead of the event, Lee Westwood added that he is in solid form at the moment and hoped that he could carry this form into The Players Championship, which will hopefully land him the famous title for the first time.
