"It does start to get you down"
By mustang6560 on 8/15/12
In the first two major championships of the year, Lee Westwood finished T3 at The Masters and T10 at the U.S. Open. However, the Englishman was largely irrelevant in The Open Championship and was a non-factor in the PGA Championship - he finished T45 at Royal Lytham and missed the cut at The Ocean Course.

So, Lee pulled a Yani Tseng and fired his interim caddie and longtime swing coach Pete Cowen.
"When you miss the cut (after leading the PGA field through two rounds in greens in regulation), it gets even more frustrating, and that probably brought matters to a head," Chandler said, according to multiple reports. "It does start to get you down when you keep walking off feeling disappointed and frustrated, so we're going to put a few things in place, including a new short-game coach."
Maybe a new short-game coach is exactly what Lee needs. The Masters is not for another eight months, so now is the best time of year to forge new relationships and try new things. For Lee's sake, I hope he finds what he's looking for so he can finally breakthrough at a major championship. He's come so close too many times to end his career on the "Best Without" list.

I have always hated Westwood's stroke. He intentionally pushes the putter through too much. He needs to go see Marius!!! Have him fixed in a couple hours.

he doesn't push it like Phil does.

Lee had a temp on his bag for the PGA. His regular caddie (Billy Foster) got hurt playing soccer before the Wells Fargo Championship and is out until next year. The new guy (Mike Kerr) was his #2 choice when he did his last caddie search and picked Foster.
