LEE WESTWOOD, 45, WON IN ABU DHABI on Sunday. That's 25 wins on the European Tour and 44 victories worldwide for the Englishman.

As Golfworld's John Huggan wrote, Westwood's resurgence began about 18 months ago. His focus changed around the same time his girlfriend Helen took over bag duties.

"I think it helps having all the responsibility and not listening to another opinion," Westwood said as quoted by Golfworld. "I've been out here 26 years. I ought to know how far it is, what club to hit, how to judge the wind and where not to miss greens. I feel like there is a lot more clarity to my head when I'm stood over the ball. There's only one opinion and it's mine. Even if I am wrong it is better to go with what I...

DON CHEADLE TO THE RESCUE. The award-winning actor has joined with the USGA to boost public golf.

From the news release:

LIBERTY CORNER, N.J – The United States Golf Association (USGA) has teamed up with Academy Award-nominated actor and United Nations Environment Program Global Goodwill Ambassador Don Cheadle in an effort to increase the value of public golf to golfers, courses and communities throughout America.

Cheadle, an avid golfer with a passion for the game, recognizes that the long-term viability of the sport depends on strengthening the health of public golf, while finding ways for the game to operate in a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly manner.

"Growing up, I used to play public courses with my father, and I have some great memories of those rounds," said Cheadle, a veteran of dozens of acclaimed movies and TV shows. "I want to make sure...

HERE'S A FAVORITE PICTURE of Jack Fleck (1921-2014), who I wrote about in my 2012 book THE LONGEST SHOT.

This is moments before the start of an 18-hole playoff with four-time U.S. Open champion Ben Hogan to decide the 1955 U.S. Open. During warm-up, Jack liked to hit a few shots with the short and long clubs, focusing on tempo.

One of the most remarkable things Jack told me in our seven-year relationship (that became a friendship) was that he wasn't afraid of playing Ben Hogan, head to head. I asked him about this on numerous occasions. If anything, it was an honor for Jack to face Hogan, because Hogan was his idol.

But, no, Jack wasn't nervous or afraid. He was a confident ball-striker and tended to play his best on tough golf courses.

For one week in June 1955, Fleck played sublime golf on a brutal, rough-infested layout, the Olympic Club in San Francisco. He...

ADAM SCOTT WON THE AUSTRALIAN PGA Championship on Sunday. That next victory in his homeland was a very long time coming.

John Huggan of Golfworld wrote:
It had been a while since Adam Scott had won a tournament in his native Australia, 2,226 days to be exact. But that wait is over. With a three-under 69 on Sunday at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the country's Gold Coast, the World No. 18 is now a two-time Australian PGA champion. Scott's 13-under-par 275 total was two shots better than New Zealand’s Michael Hendry....
"I’m pretty stoked," said an emotional Scott on earning his 11th career European Tour title.
"I grinned it out this week, and I feel like I outsmarted the course a little bit. Which feels good, and it was good enough to beat everyone. It's been a long time between drinks for me. Maybe once or twice it...​

HOW MANY BALLS WOULD IT TAKE a pro golfer to make a hole-in-one?

The odds of an average golfer making an ace are roughly one in 100,000. Stats suggest a European Tour pro's chances are closer to one in 2,500.

Meet Englishman Andy Sullivan.

With a day and 500 balls to play with on the 171-yard par three 11th hole on the Heritage Course at London Golf Club, the European Tour challenged the three-time tour winner to defy the odds.

Could Sullivan succeed where Italian Edoardo Molinari and South African Brandon Stone could not? Did he find that one perfect shot?

Watch and see.
