Fiancee, caddie and ‘psychologist’: Helen Storey, the woman helping Lee Westwood chase history

The Players Championship came to a conclusion on Sunday night with Lee Westwood falling just short in his bid to become not only the first person from England to win the tournament, but also the oldest UK player ever to prevail on the PGA Tour. In the end it was Justin Thomas who triumphed, adding The Players to the USPGA he won in 2017. But at 47 years old, runner-up Westwood proved he can still challenge with the best, having been in contention the last two weekends. One individual who has been with him throughout has been Helen Storey, his fiancee and caddie. James Corrigan takes a look at her role. Who is Helen Storey? Lee Westwood says having his fiancee Helen Storey as his caddie “is like having a psychologist out there with me”. The pair met in 2015 through Graham Wylie, the owner of the Close House Golf Club in Heddon-on-the-Wall to whom Westwood is contracted. Wylie is married to Helen’s sister, Andrea. Both Westwood and Storey are divorced parents, with Westwood having a son, Sam, and a daughter, Poppy and Storey having a daughter, Edie. The couple live in Newcastle. What is her sporting background? Storey, 43, is a fitness consultant and her love of working out has clearly helped Westwood. At their first event as player and caddie, the 2017 Abu Dhabi Championship, Westwood shot an opening 68. As soon as he had finished with the media, Storey said to Westwood: “Right, let’s now go to the gym.” Westwood later revealed: “That shocked me. At first I thought she said, ‘Right, let’s now go for a gin’. That’s what I usually do.” Storey is only a novice golfer. Her passion is horse-riding. Westwood has owned several racehorses and they have often been seen attending big meetings such as the Cheltenham Festival.
