Lee Westwood has put much of his recent success down to his fitness regimen. “I realised that I needed to shed a few pounds, and a lot of work in the gym has meant that it is easier to get back of peak fitness after a break,” said Westwood.

The Englishman who has usurped the number one position of the Official World Rankings previously occupied by Tiger Woods, had the temerity to suggest that his fellow European Tour professional Miguel Angel Jimenez might shed a pound a pound or two. “Even though I am allergic to the gym,” quipped the Spaniard, “I still spend some time there.” He also pointed out that he prefers working out in his gym at home, where he is allowed to smoke his cigars.

      Pro golfers are awarded points for every official golf tournament in which they play, and a cycle of two years is used in calculating their average points per event. (Events are weighted according to the quality of the fields). The player with the highest average in the world is declared the number one ranked. Hope that helps.
