Lee Westwood from England is currently ranked as the world’s number one golfer. Furthermore, England has three other professional golfers who are currently ranked high in the world rankings. Paul Casey (#8), Luke Donald (#9) and Ian Poulter (#11) are all English golfers. When you look at the proposed schedule for the 2011 European Tour there are only two tournaments scheduled to be played on English Soil. “I can’t get my head around it,” said Westwood. “English golf has never been so strong.”
It would certainly seem that with so many English born golfers with good standings on the world ranking that this would be the time to leverage their success to bring fans to events on English soil.
