What's In My Bag: Lee Westwood


Age: 36 | Lives: Worksop, England | Story: Westwood was the European tour's leading money-winner in 2009, something he last accomplished in 2000.

When I won the Race to Dubai money title last November, we had a big party in Dubai. And then we partied two of the next three nights back in England. I know what it's like to fall off the map. When you've felt the lows, it teaches you to enjoy the highs.


The money I won last season ($6,194,136) provides some security. I've invested most of it, difficult as that is to do in this economy.


Winning a major is the only thing missing for me. I've never been more disappointed than when I blew the lead on the final day at Turnberry and missed the playoff with Stewart Cink and Tom Watson. But I learned my game was good enough to win. I just need to finish.


I've skipped the FedEx Cup playoffs in recent years because that's when I take my two kids on holiday. You have to have priorities.

That's the nickname for the Nottingham Forest Football Club that I support. When I'm traveling in the United States, I can sometimes catch the games on ESPN or Slingbox.


I'm a massive food and wine lover, though I also work hard on my conditioning. I like Japanese food, and I've always been a glutton for vodka.
