Lee Westwood has decided not to use long-time caddie Billy Foster next season as the fourth-ranked golfer looks to end his long wait for an elusive major title.

Westwood will stick with Mike Kerr, who has filled in as caddie since August while Foster recovers from a cruciate knee injury he sustained in May before a charity football match.

Foster, who is also a good friend of Westwood, says Friday ''to get the call from Lee just as I was starting to see the light again was unbelievably disappointing.''

It continues a year of upheaval for Westwood, who split with coach Pete Cowen in August. Kerr is the third caddie used by Westwood since Foster's injury.

Next year's Masters in April will be Westwood's 60th attempt at a major win.
