Westwood’s 25 European Tour victories ranks him eighth all-time. Seve Ballesteros has the most, with 50. But of active players, Westwood trails only Tiger Woods (3rd) who has 41.
Though he has never won a major, Westwood has finished in the top 3 in each of the four over the course of his career. He’s also played on 10 Ryder Cup teams for Europe, and has an overall record of 20-13-6. Currently ranked 63rd in the world, Westwood is keen to get into the top 50 so he’ll be eligible for WGCs and the majors, but how about another Ryder Cup berth as well?
“I’m not sure I can take any more Ryder Cups,” Westwood said with a smile. “I’ve played ten and it was good watching the lads last time. But if there’s a chance of that I might as well go for it.”
