Lee Westwood named 2020 European tour Golfer of the year

Lee Westwood has been named European Tour Golfer of the Year following his thrilling Race to Dubai victory last season.

Westwood defied the odds to be crowned European No 1 for the third time in his career, 20 years after topping the Order of Merit for the first time, after pipping Patrick Reed to the title with his solo runner-up finish at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.

The 47-year-old has now been awarded Golfer of the Year honours for the fourth time in recognition of another outstanding campaign, which began with his 25th European Tour title when he claimed a two-shot win over Matt Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood and Victor Perez in Abu Dhabi.
