GULLANE, Scotland – Lee Westwood is working with swing coach Sean Foley.

International Sports Management’s Chubby Chandler told GolfChannel.com on Tuesday at Muirfield that Westwood, considered one of the game’s top ball-strikers, began working with Foley “a couple of weeks ago.”

Westwood confirmed the relationship with Golf Channel's Todd Lewis.

'Yeah, we’ve been doing a bit of work,' Westwood told Lewis. 'Sean came down to Old Palm. I first sat down and chatted with him at the Memorial and then he came down and did some work with me at Old Palm. I like what he’s got to say and it’s pretty simple and I should be able to get used to it pretty quickly.

'I’m seeing a better ball flight. The positions in the golf swing feel a bit better.'

Westwood joins Foley’s expanding staff that now includes world No. 1 Tiger Woods, U.S. Open champion Justin Rose and Hunter Mahan.
