Darren Clarke misses out on these criteria as well - 14 career wins including 1 major & 2 WGC events - 3 wins on the Japanese tour.
But Westwood might get in 24 wins, lots of Ryder Cup appearances, 2 x Order of Merit winner, 14 wins on other tours, consistent high OWGR including a spell as number 1.
Not sure that's right
I don't know why but even with the Major, Darren Clarke's career doesn't feel as impressive at Lee Westwood's.
Again, my criteria states that if you have 20+ wins without a major, you will only be considered for the HOF...so Westwood wouldn't be in automatically. His extra credentials will have to be assessed and he's still "playing" right now and at a high level anyway. Who knows what more he will accomplish in the upcoming years.
