Westwood Earns Euro Player of the Year Honors

Lee Westwood was named the European Tour's Asprey and Garrand Golfer of the Year for the second time in the last three years.
The 27-year-old Englishman won six times in 2000 and ended Colin Montgomerie's seven-year run at the top of the Order of Merit.
'It's a fantastic honor to be voted Player of the Year and caps a wonderful season for me and all those who have helped make it such a success,' said Westwood.
Westwood won the award unanimously over Ernie Els and Darren Clarke. The world's No. 5 ranked player is in South Africa this week for the Nedbank Sun City Challenge, which offers $2 million to the winner.
