Who is Lee Westwood’s girlfriend and caddie Helen Storey, and when did the pair start dating? – The Sun
LEE WESTWOOD is back on the Major hunt this week as he tees off at the PGA Championship.
Golf fans have become accustomed to seeing the Brit star's girlfriend Helen Storey as his caddie in recent years – and after a break for The Masters, she'll be by her partners side this week at Kiawah Island.
Who is Lee Westwood's girlfriend Helen Storey?
ORIGINALLY from Newcastle, Helen is a fitness instructor who has also worked in consultancy.
Westwood gave her his bag during the Made In Denmark competition in September 2018 after handing usual caddie Billy Foster a week off – and responded with one of his best performances of the year.

Since then, she's been a regular on the links alongside her man – and was beside Lee as he went for glory in the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational.
She likes to keep her Instagram followers updated on her fitness exploits, with regular snaps and videos of her gym exploits.
Helen has also proved herself to be handy with a club, with Westwood posting a video of her striking a decent approach to a Par 3.
He captioned it: "Wow! Flush! And she remembered to pick up her tee!"
She was once again by Westwood's side in Sun City, South Africa, as the English golfer won his first tournament since the Malaysian Open in April 2014, his 26th in all since turning pro in 1993.

When did they start dating?
THE pair got together in 2015.
They were introduced by Westwood's mate Graham Wylie, who is married to Storey's sister.
Westwood was formerly married to Laurae Coltart – who he wed in 1999 – but the couple divorced three years ago.
Why wasn't Helen caddie for Westwood at The Masters?
Westy revealed his son Sam will caddie for him at the 2021 Masters with fiancee Helen stepping aside at Augusta.
After slipping to second place in The Players Championship back in March, he revealed he was taking son Sam along with him to the tournament for a 'lads-and-dads trip'.
He explained: "I've got a fun couple of days coming up. I'm going to play Augusta with my son Sam.
"Tomorrow's going to be a good Monday. It's the first time he's played there.
"He's been there with me years ago, but he's caddying for me this year in the Masters itself."
And by taking Sam along with him, Westwood will be fulfilling a promise two years in the making.
In January 2019, Westwood revealed he would have Sam carry his bags to give him additional incentive to break back into the world's top 50 and qualify for the tournament.
