Lee Westwood 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Westwood married Laurae Coltart, the sister of Scottish Ryder Cup player Andrew Coltart, in January 1999.
The couple have two children, Samuel Bevan and Poppy Grace. The two divorced in 2017.
After his divorce, Westwood moved back to Europe from his residence in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
He is good friends with fellow Ryder Cup star Darren Clarke and from April 2006 he co-owned a private jet with him.
Westwood now lives in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne.
In 2007, Westwood was presented with an Honorary degree of Doctor of Science by Nottingham Trent University.
The University named its sports hall after the golfer in October 2010.
He announced the creation of the Lee Westwood Golf School in 2010, which offers young golfers the ability to combine golf training with their education as part of their school life.
In addition, since 2010 Westwood has created a Junior Lee Westwood Golf Tour and Lee Westwood Golf Camps.
In recognition of his work with young golfers, he was awarded with the Golf Foundation’s ‘Spirit of Golf’ Award just before the Open Championship, an award which was previously held by Gary Player and Tony Jacklin.
Westwood’s major passion is horse racing, in which he has had an interest in several successful horses, including Hoof It which won the Stewards Cup twice.
Other interests include films, snooker and cars. He is a keen football fan who supports Nottingham Forest.
He also supports and sponsors his local semi professional side Worksop Town FC.
Westwood is a follower of Dumfries based football club Queen of the South, most likely due to having Andrew Coltart as a former brother-in-law, who himself is a passionate supporter of the Scottish club.
Westwood was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2011 Birthday Honours.
He began playing when he was 13 with half a golf set given to him by his grandparents.
He is the winner of both the European Tour and the PGA tour and was named the player of the year in 1998, 2000, and 2009.
