Lee Westwood's fiancee caddie Helen jokes she would win a 'wet vest competition' after working up a sweat at Masters

HELEN STOREY joked that she could claim a Green Jacket for Augusta's 'Wet Vest Competition' after caddying for fiancee Lee Westwood in the Georgia sun.

Temperatures hit 27°C on Wednesday as the pair went out for the final time before the competition kicks off.

But it was the high humidity that caught Storey out, and she posted a funny remark on Instagram after the round.

She joked: "I'd win the wet vest competition! 1000% humidity out there!"

Given the weather forecast, humidity may be the least of Storey's worries this weekend.

Heavy downpours are predicted for Thursday's opening round with Westwood due to tee off at 12.33pm UK time.

The 47-year-old is one of the few pro golfers who caddy with their partner.

The star's fitness fanatic fiancee picked up his clubs in 2018 and has never looked back.

This weekend's Masters may finally be the occasion which breaks the Brit's Major hoodoo – with two second-place finishes in Augusta still his personal best.

Last year, Westwood spoke of how Storey may not be the most expert golfer in the world, but she has a great handle on keeping him composed mentally.

He said: "Obviously I get on well with Helen.

"She doesn't know too much about golf but she knows a lot about the way my mind works.

"So she keeps me in a good frame of mind and focusing on the right things at the right time. There's more to the caddying than carrying and getting the wind direction."

The pair were meant to be getting married in August but had to put plans on hold due to coronavirus.

And fans watching from home may well pick up on the couple planning for their eventual nuptials during the Masters.

Westwood has confessed that golf is not always the subject of conversation as they take to the course.

He added: "You'd be surprised at the sort of things we talk about out there. Dinner. Where we're going on holiday. Whether there's a nail file in the bag – for me, not her!

“My favourite one was from Denmark, the first week she caddied for me, and I took out a divot because it was big and soft and she's walking back with the divot at arm’s length.

“So and I said, ‘What's wrong?’ And she said, 'I hope there's not a worm in this'.

"Thankfully, it was worm-free, but that sort of thing makes me smile. It’s a big advantage to be so relaxed."
