European Ryder Cup: Lee Westwood
Lee Westwood will be making his 8th appearance in the Ryder Cup. He is the most experienced player on the European Team going 14-6-6 overall. In 2012 Westwood ranks in the top 10 on the PGA Tour in greens in regulations and birdie average. His Achilles heel is his short game in which he ranks outside the top 100 on the PGA Tour in all major putting categories. Although he has a weak short game Westwood makes up for it with his outstanding ball striking that has allowed him to still be successful. Look for Westwood to be that veteran force need on Olazabal’s European Team.
