Westwood back in action

Lee Westwood will hope to continue his excellent form in this weekend’s Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte.

The Worksop golfer, who is now based in Florida, finished tied for fourth place in last year’s tournament.

He was due to tee off on Thursday alongside fellow Englishman Justin Rose and America’s Phil Mickelson, in a three ball that will be sure to attract a large following.

Westwood, who turned 41 this month, had last weekend off following his victory at the Maybank Malaysian Open at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club.

Speaking on his form, he said: “It’s got the potential to get close (to how he was playing when he got to World number one), only now I feel I’ve got a short game and I’m starting to roll a few putts in.”
