Lee Westwood doesn’t believe a major victory is an inevitability, even if he’s a regular contender in the biggest golf tournaments.

The Worksop man, who is in action this weekend at the US Open at Merion near Philadelphia, says he has to keep working hard to try and land the one thing that has eluded him in a glittering career.

“I don’t think it’s inevitable, and I don’t think it’s one of these things you can force,” he said.

“You’ve just got to keep working on the things that are letting you down really.”

“I’ve been in contention a lot of times and come close. and there are certain things that have let me down, so you just have to work on your weaknesses.”

Westwood tees off today (Thursday) alongside Luke Donald and Martin Kaymer.
