Lee's mind games

THE most notable absentee from the flurry of recent Major champions under the International Sports Management umbrella is Lee Westwood. In the run-up to this week's PGA, the world No 2 turned to sports psychologist Bob Rotella and putting guru Dave Stockton, himself a two-time PGA champion, to help him break his duck.

Already, however, that has changed. Westwood (pictured) has decided to "dump" Stockton's more technical approach in favour of what Rotella calls "total unconsciousness" over the ball.

"He's really rolling the ball nicely and he feels good about his chipping and pitching," said Rotella.
