Westwood parts with caddy after 10 years

ST SIMONS SALA, Ga. (AP) – Lee Westwood and Matt Kuchar won last week, each lasting four years, without victory in their home chain. They also won without their regular caddies.

Kuchar used the local Caddy at Mayakoba as he came in at the last minute, and his regular loop, John Wood, was previously involved. Westwood used her girlfriend Helen Storey, whom she had already given him in Denmark.

Wood continues to work with Kuchar in the Australian Open Week. Billy Fosters has completed a ten-year-old team with Westwood.

"My relationship with Billy had reached a point where none of us could do anything about it, and we did not do any good for each other," Westwood told West Indian Championship World Cup Tuesday in Dubai. "I sat there and said," It's not good, I play better if you do not have there than when you're there, because something obviously does not work. "He said to me," Well, I can not Caddy you, I want you caddy. ""

Westwood said he had reached a career stage, where he did not have so much of his caddy, and he felt that Foster was not happy, just a bag bag.

"It was just one of the things that had to be stopped," Westwood said. "We obviously had a great time in the last 10 years, and it was very successful, but people are changing and how you work and deal with things."

Foster works with Matt Fitzpatrick in Dubai. Westwood is used by Glen Murray who was on the sack with Sergio Garcia when the Spaniard won the Champions.


The road to graduate students will also facilitate the opening of the road to Northern Ireland for the British.

With the PGA Championship moving to May, R & D has changed the locations and dates of the "Open Skills Series" with major changes to the PGA Tour. Last year, the three PGA Tour tournaments held by The Open offered nine points to players who have not been released – in two tournaments, four in the top 12 on the leaderboard and one point at John Deere Classic.

Now three spots for the top 10 players that have not been released are being offered at Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill 7-10. At the opening of Canada from June 6 to 9, three places are awarded. Between June 27 and 30, Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit has two seats. John Deere Classic is still up one place a week before British Open at Royal Portrush.

The European schedule has not changed, just tournaments. Three points for 10 top players will be awarded on each of the three tournaments leading to The Open – Andalusian Welsh Master, Ireland Open and Scottish Open.

A total of 46 qualifying points for 156 people worldwide are available worldwide, starting this week in the Australian Open.


Emiliano Grillo rapped the 3-foot bogey putt on the final hole at Mayakoba, who popped around the lip and spun, which left him stunned. He made a double ball at 69, dropping him from the sixth tie to the 10th place alone in the 15th place.

It was worth $ 35,400. It cost him nine FedEx Cup Points. It's happening every week.

At the end of this year, it paid Argentine 0.83 World Ranking Points. Instead of finding 46th place, Grillo moved to point 48. That's important, as 50 players on the right-hand side get to the masters, and he will have to wait to see if this putt ultimately pays their particular invitation.

Then again Grillo will play Dunlop Phoenix in Japan this week and this could make it a reasonable point.


Jordan Spieth is not the first time since 2013 to open the Australian Open, although it attracted a strong American band that includes Matt Kuchar, Keegan Bradley and Brandt Snedeker. Kuchar will stay in Australia at the Golf World Cup next week.

The Australian discovery could get even more strenuous next year.

Organizers announced Tuesday that it will take place on 5-8. In December, one week before the President's Cup at Royal Melbourne.

When the last President's Cup was in Australia in 2011, 13 players from the US and international teams competed in the fifth golf championship. This group was Tiger Woods, who next year will be the Captain of the Presidential Cup.

"This is a great news about Australia's openness and we're excited about what it means for an Australian golf fan," said Golf Australia CEO Stephen Pitt.


Disabled golfers are becoming their world leader.

Starting in January, R & A and USGA announced Tuesday for world-class golfers with disabilities for men and women. The world amateur golf course will lead both places. The Managing Authorities agreed to take over the program established for the 2014 European Disabled Golfers.

"For golfers with disabilities in the race, the number of events is increasing worldwide, so it makes sense that there is a general ranking to ensure a rigorous assessment of the individual's abilities and abilities," said Duncan Weir, Golf Development Manager and amateur events for research and development. for development. "This is another important step to ensure that golf is an integral part of all ages and abilities."

The announcement coincided with the Australian All-All Championship, with 12 golfers taking part in the Australian Open this week.
