Westwood tries to save his best for the big events. While he didn't put this tournament in the top five, it was prestigious enough to motivate him.
"As you get older, it gets harder to peak all the time when you want to," said Westwood, a 37-year-old Englishman. "You have to pick and choose your ones, and you want to play well in the biggest tournaments. And this is one of the biggest tournaments."
