The former World No. 1, Lee Westwood is one of the most successful English golfers of all time having racked up 23 European Tour victories and 19 other wins around the world. A hero for Europe in numerous Ryder Cups, the 42-year-old put in a dominating performance at the inaugural TGC in 2011 when he opened up with a course-record 60 on his way to a seven-shot margin of victory. Last year, Westwood repeated his victory at Amata Spring when he shot a brilliant 67 on the final day to overtake Martin Kaymer and Marcus Fraser in dramatic fashion. Such is his reputation among British sports fans, Westwood was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2011.
