"Not just a good caddie" - Lee Westwood rests iPad on sleeping wife Helen

Lee Westwood certainly appeared to be back to his usual good-humoured self after qualifying for the Ryder Cup

Westwood endured a tense weekend at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in Surrey. 

He admitted he couldn't focus on the right things as he appeared to be in a straight tussle with Shane Lowry to get the ninth spot. 

Rounds of 70, 70, 71 and a poor 77 (5-over par) saw Westy stumble into the clubhouse relying on the Irishman to falter.

Lowry did, but got the nod by captain Padraig Harrington to the dismay of quite a lot of Team Europe Ryder Cup fans. 

Westwood, who finished 19 shots behind BMW PGA Champion Billy Horschel, will now tie Nick Faldo's appearance record for Team Europe.

Whistling Straits will be his 11th appearance and he will also tie for the oldest player to represent the European side since 1973. 

Westwood appeared to be back in good spirits after the stressful weekend, mind. 

He posted an image of his wife and caddie Helen on Twitter appearing to be asleep with an iPad resting on her. 

It was showing Nottingham Forest's match versus Cardiff City at the City Ground. 

Forest lost the match 2-1, which would've no doubt irked massive Forest fan Westwood. 

Westwood posted: "How good is my wife!!! Not just a good caddie!"

The image also showed an empty bottle of Corona. 

Perhaps Westy sank this cold beer in relief? 

Now the hard work starts.
