Lee Westwood may be annoyed with Rory McIlroy not being selected as the Rookie of the Year but he should keep in mind that as a player he only has one vote. His fellow players voted otherwise. Westwood shouldn't use his new #1 rating as a "Bully Pulpit". He still only has one vote, even as #1!

Well, Westwood has said he won't be playing the PGA in 2011 except for the majors plus, maybe, one or two other important tournaments. I don't believe his reasons for not playing the PGA tour. The competition is easier on the EURO tour and will make it easier to maintain his #1 ranking. I mean, how many people does he have to beat??--2 or 3 players where on the PGA there are at least 15 legitimate golfers that could win at any time.
Maybe, since his ego has gotten bigger he is trying to take over Monty's role as spokeman for all pro tour players in the World.
