Lee Westwood won the Race to Dubai 47-years-old

Lee Westwood won the Race to Dubai at 47-years-old for the third time in twenty years. British former world no.1 has never won a Major in his career. During the post green interview, Lee said: “At that time I was winning a lot.

I had only recently been on the circuit. In 2009 I was struggling to become number one in the world. Today I am the most mature player on the Tour. The Race was not my goal of the season but I see it as a reward for my career, for consistency.

The motivation to play has never been lacking, I get up every day and do the work I love. I've always wanted to be a golfer and I don't want it to end. I'm ready to continue working hard." Lee did it just after Angela Stanford won the Volunteers of America Classic in Texas, her seventh career title on the LPGA Tour, at 43-years-old.

The American, with a sensational comeback, beat South Korea's So Yeon Ryu, Inbee Park and Yealimi Noh. The greatest achievement in her career came at The Evian Championship, one of the 5 Majors of women's golf. Now, 27 months after, the wins at the Volunteers of America Classic.

Another great achievement for Stanford. Meanwhile among men's, the 23-years-old Norwegian Viktor Hovland overtook the 24-years-old South African-born American Aaron Wise to win the title. Hovland, with his second wins in 2020 after the one in February in the Puerto Rico Open, is the fifth European player to achieve two victories on the PGA Tour before 24-years-old.

Tiger Woods on the green with 11-year-old Charlie!

Father and son will play the PNC tournament. The event will take place December 19-20 at the Ritz-Carlton Club in Orlando, Central Florida. At the 2019 at Augusta National Woods hugged his son after winning the Masters for the fifth time, after 4 back operations.

It was his 15th Major, but his first triumph in front of his son. Aaron Stewart once made tandem with Paul Azinger after the boy's father, Payne Stewart, died in a plane crash. Annika Sorenstam is playing with her father Tom.

On the pitch this year Justin Thomas with his father Mike Thomas, a pro from Kentucky. For Johnston, Woods' yes is fantastic news: they were neighbors on Isleworth when Woods went pro in 1996. After 23 years, Tiger said yes.

The tournament will be behind closed doors due to Covid. The tournament will be broadcast on Nbc. Woods is golf's biggest attraction. Langer, Raymond Floyd and Larry Nelson have won multiple times with different children. To participate you must have won a Major or The Players Championship and the son must not have played in the Pga Tour.

Other big names will challenge Woods: John Daly, Greg Norman, Nick Price, Lee Trevino and Gary Player. Tiger said: "I don't know how excited I am to play with Charlie in our first official tournament together. It was fantastic to see him improve as a junior, and it will be incredible to play together as a team in the PNC championship .

" Meanwhile Dustin Johnson won the 84th edition of The Masters. After winning the US Open in 2016, the American wins another Grand Slam event four years later. The 36-year-old from Columbia (South Carolina), in the third round had advanced with a partial of 65 (-7) out of a total of 200 (-16) strokes, in the fourth day he closed with five strokes ahead of the Australian Cameron Smith and South Korean Sungjae Im.

He is the first player in his career to reach -20 at The Masters. Dustin Johnson was in total control all week except for the start of round four. The American in the first five holes of the last lap recorded a birdie and two bogeys (consecutive, at 4 and 5) that had reopened the super challenge at Augusta National.
