Westwood in Classic event

Lee Westwood is back in Memphis for the FedEx St Jude Classic at TPC Southwind this week.

He last played the event in 2011, finishing in a tie for 11th place.

A year earlier he won the tournament in dramatic circumstances, following a three-way tie and a sudden-death play-off.

The event raises funds for the St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Westwood tees off with Jonathan Byrd and David Toms on Thursday.

Fellow Worksop man Mark Foster, who is returning to live in the town this month, was in Sweden last weekend for the Nordea Masters at PGA National Sweden.

But Foster was unable to replicate his impressive form from the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, and missed the cut after rounds of 72 and 74 left him two over par.

This weekend he’s in Austria for the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity.

The 38-year-old tees off with Andreas Hartø and Johan Carlsson at Atzenbrugg on Thursday.
