Read that Lee Westwood is considering moving to the United States and play on the PGA Tour.
He has said that the weather in this country doesn't help with his practice sessions.
I do think that moving to the US will help his game, and maybe get him that major win.
What do you think?

If he wants to move to tuvalu and he thinks it will be benificial to his prospects of that first Major then thats fine by me. It will certainly enhance the pga events but a big loss for the European tour. Although I still think he will play a handfull of events. Good luck to him. He has certainly been knocking on the Major door so that small step up may be the answer. If you compare Sir Nick and Monty. Nick went over the pond and won 6 Majors. Colin didn,t and eeerm Didn't. But at their prime I don't think there was a lot to choose between them. Dave CAC handed Geordie.

Maybe a change of environment will have a positive effect for Lee. If we use Mo Farah as another example his performances have increased dramatically since he decided to move his training to the USA and he has now turned into a world class athlete in his event. As the post above mentions it all depends on the person but I think this could help Lee take another step towards his goal.
I read this article about it which might be of interest to people

Lee Poulter & Luke Donald play on the PGA but neither of them have won a major yet & not even got a sniff of one. I think if Lee goes it will have a detriment affect on his game as all the PGA courses seem to be the same & don't require much shot making. But if he's going for the weather then who can blame him!
Didn't he play on the PGA tour some years back & come back?

the european tour seems to be losing a lot of appeal for players recently. I'm sure audience figures are down too which normally means sponsors will start pulling out. they better be careful.
