Paige Spiranac throws support behind Lee Westwood at Players Championship and says she'll call it 5th Major if he wins

PAIGE SPIRANAC is backing Lee Westwood to win this weekend's Players Championship.

The ex-pro golfer has said she'll call it the fifth major if the 47-year-old veteran, who is currently in the lead, wins the event.

Spiranac, who has more than three million followers on Instagram, tweeted: "The only way I’ll consider The Players to be the fifth major is if Lee Westwood wins.

"That way we can call him a major champ."

The Englishman is enjoying some good form at the moment, narrowly missing out on winning last weekend's Arnold Palmer Invitational – one of the most prestigious events on the PGA Tour.

He finished one shot behind big-hitting American Bryson DeChambeau, who made the headlines for almost reaching the green off the tee on a par five.

Westwood is one of the greatest golfers of his generation, topping the world rankings in 2010 and winning the European Tour Race to Dubai three times.

The only thing missing from his illustrious CV is a major championship, hence Spiranac's support.


Westwood is currently one shot clear of fellow Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick at the half-way stage.

He has never won at Sawgrass, achieving his best result of tied-fourth in 2010.

The event is widely considered the unofficial fifth major, making it one of the biggest prizes in men's golf.

Spiranac recently admitted that women berate her for ‘showing cleavage’ and criticised the makers of the upcoming Space Jam sequel for reducing the size of Lola Bunny's breasts.

She also believes that Tiger Woods can make another stunning comeback, despite suffering a serious car crash in February.
