The second WGC event of the year takes place in Miami, Florida this week for Lee Westwood.

He’s in action at Trump National Doral in the WGC Cadillac Championship, where he finished tied for 24th last year, and second in 2000.

It comes on the back of the Honda Classic, close to home for Westwood last weekend, at Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

The Worksop man shot an opening round of 68, two under par, and flew up the leaderboard to joint fourth on Friday with a 65.

Speaking after that fine round he said: “I really enjoy playing this golf course. It’s a demanding test.”

It certainly proved a tough test over the weekend, as Westwood went on to shoot rounds of 73 and 74, falling back to even par for the tournament and sharing 46th place on the leaderboard.

Russell Henley won the title after a four-way play-off.

Westwood’s third straight tournament in his ‘home’ state of Florida comes on 20th March when he plays in the Arnold Palmer Invitational: at Bay Hill Golf Club, Orlando.
