Lee Westwood won’t have ‘secret weapon’ caddie on the bag for 2021 Masters

Published

on

Lee Westwood’s golf game has been rejuvenated over the past few months, and per the Englishman, a lot of credit goes to his fiancee, who also happens to be his caddie, Helen Storey.

Following Saturday’s round at Sawgrass, Westwood spoke about how Storey helps him on the course, saying 

“At my stage of my career, there’s not a lot a caddie can tell me, but obviously Helen gets me in a fantastic mood out there, and psychologically she can help me and say the things that I need to hear. She helps me in that aspect an immeasurable amount.”

Their partnership has got Westwood looking calmer and happier on the course than at any other point of his career, as noticed by his playing partner on Sunday, Bryson DeChambeau. Ahead of Sunday’s round, Bryson described Storey as Lee’s secret weapon and his rock on the course.

However, for the 2021 Masters, it won’t be Storey on the bag as Westwood continues his hunt for the major that has eluded him all of his career.

Instead, Westwood will have his son, 19, on the bag for the first major of the year, with the two heading straight to Augusta this week for a “lads and dads trip”.

“I’ve got a fun couple of days coming up. I’m going to play Augusta with my son Sam. Tomorrow’s going to be a good Monday. It’s the first time he’s played there. He’s been there with me years ago, but he’s caddying for me this year in the Masters itself. So I figure I’m taking him to play 36 holes Monday and Tuesday. It will be a good lads and dads trip. Looking forward to it.”

With so much emphasis put on major championships, it’s not just the professional golfers that face a pressure-packed build-up to the events—so do many designers working behind the scenes to create commemorative bags like the ones being used by Callaway staffers this week at the ANA Inspiration on the LPGA Tour.

Callaway debuted the bag on their Instagram page with Morgan Pressel and you can check out the video below.

Published

on

Brooks Koepka is now engaged to Jena Sims after the couple announced the news on their social media sites on Thursday.

The two began dating in 2017, and Sims, who has been prominent at tournaments involving Brooks since then, revealed the engagement news with the caption: “Forever is no joke.”

Doubt remains over Koepka’s involvement at next week’s Masters, but there has been the odd sighting of optimism for Brooks’ legion of fans besides the seemingly free movement of the 4-time major champ in Sims’ photos posted yesterday.

The Masters website removed Tiger Woods from their player list for 2021, but Koepka remains in said list, and according to Rich Lerner at Golf Channel, the 30-year-old was taking full swings at Riviera CC this week.

Could a newly engaged Koepka still tee it up at Augusta?

Ian Poulter switches to long putter and claw grip…but all is not as it seems

Published

on

Ian Poulter was in his element on Thursday, with the Englishman using Instagram to pull off a slick April Fools Joke.

The 45-year-old posted a video of himself practising with a belly putter and a claw grip in preparation for next week’s Masters tournament with the caption:

“I’ve been testing this for a while and it’s simply more consistent. Putting is key at the Masters. So if you can’t beat them join them…”

While some posters fell for the prank, the pros were quick to see through Poulter’s scheming:

  • Bryson DeChambeau: “Uh oh, is this one of those April… you know….”
  • Tyrrell Hatton: “Just need a greens book now.”
  • Justin Thomas: “Better get it in fast before it’s banned!”

It wouldn’t have been a true April Fools Day without a little something from the Postman!
