Westwood Gets New Luggage Toter, Searching (Again) For Short Game Coach 

Derek Lawrenson on the end of one of the stronger player-caddy associations, Lee Westwood and Billy Foster, as well as the ending of the brief experiment working with Tony Johnstone on Westwood's beleaguered short game.

This "team" is one of the few where I can see, from afar, as where the two really enjoy working with each other and enjoy each other's company (the other being Mickelson). Kinda sad about the circumstance and I can also sympathise with Westwood's reluctant decision.

Foster took himself out of the running for Tiger's bag last year because of his friendship with Lee. I understand wanting to have a steady caddy, but Lee and Billy have worked together for a long time, and are already broken in. I can't imagine Lee will be better off coming down Magnolia Ln in April with someone other than Billy on his bag.

Kerr should've taken Garcia's bag.

Good luck to Lee. His short game is BAD.

Foster is a great caddie... I hope he finds a way back onto Lee's bag.

Tough break for Foster...but I'm sure he'll find another loop and be OK. Lee should've hired Stan Utley for a caddie/short game coach....his play near the greens can be rather comical at times when faced with a simple chip from a tight lie.
