But there's one PGA golfer that often gets overlooked is Lee Westwood from England. The former No. 1 golfer in the world from England is well-known for his consistent play and was named player of the year for the 1998, 2001 and 2008 seasons. Westwood has 39 career wins, 22 of which were from the European Tour (ninth all-time), and has won tournaments on every continent. Westwood also won the 2000 European Tour Order of Merit and the 2009 Tour of Dubai (which it had been renamed to).
Westwood's best results in each major championship are:
- Master's Tournament: Second place (2010)
- U.S. Open: Third place (2008), tied for third place (2011)
- The Open Championship: Second place (2010)
- PGA Championship: Tied for third place (2009)
