A long-standing tour pro with 41 professional career wins to his name, Lee Westwood is one of just a handful of golfers to have prevailed in tournaments in every major continent. Westwood ended the long-standing reign of Tiger Woods as world number one back in 2010, becoming the first Englishman to lead the rankings since Nick Faldo some 16 years previous. The 40-year-old has finished runners-up at the Masters and The Open Championship back in 2010 and is regarded as one of the most talented golfers yet to win a major. Westwood represented Europe in his Ryder Cup debut back in 1997 and has since featured in the last seven Ryder Cup teams. If you'd like to take a look at Lee Westwood's 'what's in the bag?', the Worksop-born pro is endorsed by PING and primarily uses PING golf clubs and equipment.
