Last Updated: 06/09/17 9:44am
Ahead of Lee Westwood making his 500th European Tour appearance at this week's Omega European Masters, we take a closer look at his career in numbers.
The highest world ranking Westwood has held in his career, holding the world No 1 spot for a total of 22 weeks over two separate spells.
Westwood topped the standings for 17 weeks between October 2010 and February 2011, before reclaiming pole position for a five-week stretch later that year.
The number of times Westwood has won the European Tour's Harry Vardon Trophy, which is awarded to the player top of the season-long Order of Merit.
Westwood registered the biggest season earnings in 2000 and repeated the feat in 2009 - the first year of the Race to Dubai.
Westwood is a three-time runner-up in majors, having finished second to Phil Mickelson in the 2010 Masters, Louis Oosthuizen in The Open later that year and Danny Willett at the 2016 Masters.
Three of Lee Westwood's four Japan Golf Tour titles came in consecutive years and in the same event, the Sumitomo VISA Taiheiyo Masters, with the other coming from the 1998 Dunlop Phoenix Tournament.
Westwood registered five worldwide top-10s during 2016, including a runner-up finish at Augusta and third spot at the British Masters.
Just six of Westwood's 44 Ryder Cup matches have been halved, with four of those coming in the foursomes and two in the fourballs.
His highest-number of victories in a calendar year, with Westwood winning four times on the European Tour, twice on the Japanese Golf Tour and once on the PGA Tour in 1998.
The biggest victory of Westwood's career came at the 2010 Nedbank Golf Challenge, where he finished eight strokes clear of South Africa's Tim Clark.
Westwood is a nine-time winner on the Asian Tour, with the 2015 CIMB Niaga Indonesia Masters his most recent worldwide victory.
The number of Ryder Cup appearances Lee Westwood has made for Team Europe, one less than the all-time record held by Sir Nick Faldo.
Westwood has featured in every contest since making his tournament debut in 1997, playing in seven winning teams.
The current run of cuts made in majors, longer than at any point during Westwood's career. Westwood's last major missed cut came at The Open in 2014.
Although he hasn't won on the European Tour since 2014, Westwood has registered 23 victories during his long career on the Tour and sits joint-eighth in the all-time list of wins.
The lowest round of Westwood's career saw him card a 12-under 60 during the opening round of the 2011 Thailand Golf Championship. He would go on to win the event by seven strokes.
Westwood holds the second-highest number of major appearances without ever winning one of golf's 'big four'. Only Jay Haas (87 starts) has played in more without victory.
