Who is Lee Westwood’s girlfriend Helen Storey, has she caddied for him before and when did they start dating?

LEE WESTWOOD has been in sparkling form at the Made in Denmark event.

The former World No1 has laughed off the idea of a wildcard spot for the Ryder Cup – but looked at ease with girlfriend Helen Story on caddy duty.

As well as a caddie 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 captained it: "Wow! Flush! And she remembered to pick up her tee!"

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.
