Westy is California dreamin’ this week

Have your say

Lee Westwood is in action this week, at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club, Pacific Palisades in California.

The Worksop golfer tees off just before 4pm GMT alongside Ken Duke, from Palm City, Florida, and South African Retief Goosen.

Last year the tournament was won by John Merrick, who defeated Charlie Beljan on the second playoff hole.

This week Westwood has also confirmed his entry for the Maybank Malaysian Open in April.

He won the event in 1997, and his last appearance there was in 2007.

The Malaysian Open will be played at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club from 17th April, with a prize purse of $2.75 million.
