Who is Lee Westwood’s girlfriend caddie Helen Storey, has she carried his bag before, and when did they start dating?


LEE WESTWOOD has hired his girlfriend as his caddie – and now the pair are doing brilliantly at The Open.

Stunning Helen Storey, 42, is scared of divots with worms in and doesn’t know much about golf but has helped her fella to near the top of the leaderboard at Royal Portrush – and capped it off with a kiss.

Who is Lee Westwood’s girlfriend Helen Storey?

ORIGINALLY from Newcastle, Helen is a fitness-fanatic who works as a consultant.

Westwood gave her his bag during the Made In Denmark competition in September after handing usual caddie Billy Foster a week off – and responded with one of his best performances of the year.

As well as a caddy gig in Abu Dhabi last year, Helen also carried his bag at the 2016 Masters Par-3 contest.

And she likes to keep her Instagram followers updated on her fitness exploits, with snaps and videos of her gym exploits posted regularly.

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.
