Who's hot

England's Lee Westwood knocked off European stalwart Colin Montgomerie at the World Match Play Championship, claiming a one-up victory through 38 holes for his sixth title of the year in Europe. Westwood is on his way to the European Order of Merit, which will end Montgomerie's seven-year reign as Europe's No. 1 money winner.

Who's not

U.S. Solheim Cup captain Pat Bradley chose fellow Hall of Famer Beth Daniel as one of her at-large selections, and Daniel did not do her resume proud. She went 0-3-1 at the Solheim Cup, and Europe won the match by four points. It was the worst performance by a captain's pick in an international team event since Curtis Strange went 0-3 at the 1995 Ryder Cup.


"No individual championship can top this. It's the U.S. Open and British Open rolled into one." -- Laura Davies, English woman, who has played on every European Solheim Cup team, after the victory over the United States.
