Reading Westwood on the way to the Legends Tour? Lee Westwood will turn 50 on April 17, 2023, making him eligible to play on the Legends Tour. So far everything normal, time flies for everyone. The particular fact is another.
The British player revealed to The Telegraph that shortly after the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, he was approached by a manager from the Legends Tour and asked to play in future European Senior Tour events.
Lee Westwood, Statements
The invitation left Westwood confused.
“Let’s try to understand it well” “The Main Tour (DP World Tour, NDR) is trying to ban me while their Senior Tour tells me that they intend to roll out the red carpet for me. In short, that’s the mess.” “I’m not sure they know how their show fits into the situation.”
As we know, the British player is in favor of the negotiations, he is not among those who have appealed the DP World Tour ruling against the players who have joined LIV Golf, whose hearing is scheduled for next February.
. But he knows very well that his future on the European Tour and thus also on the Legends Tour, which is under the umbrella of the European Tour Group, depends on the outcome of this appeal. Following news of a possible deal with Donald Trump, this is the second sign of the “no lineup” movement the Legends Tour is sending to the world of professional golf.
If you also look at R&A CEO Martin Slumbers’ remarks about LIV Golf players, you naturally wonder what’s cooking in the pot. Lee John Westwood is an English golfer. He is one of the few players who managed to win at least one tournament on each continent.
He was named European Tour Player of the Year in 1998, 2000, 2009 and 2020. He has been part of the European Ryder Cup team in the last 9 editions, winning 7 (1997, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2010, 2012, 2014). . At the end of 2010, Westwood became number one in the world.
During his career, Westwood won a total of 39 professional tournaments: 22 on the European Tour, 2 on the PGA Tour, 4 on the Japan Golf Tour, 6 on the Asian Tour, and 3 on the Sunshine Tour, but never a major.
