Lee Westwood will count on the support of his mum this week, at the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The Worksop golfer has been joined in Sun City by a number of supporters, as he tries to recapture a title he won in both 2010 and 2011.

He takes a bit of form into the event, having finished in the top 20 at the Emirates Australian Open last week.

Westwood played alongside Jordan Spieth and Geoff Ogilvy for the first round in New South Wales, and was tied for 11th at the end of the day after a one under par round of 71.

The second round saw him card a 72 to drop to a share of 14th place, and he was disaappointed with a third round 75.

But a 69 on the final day put him in T18th position, two over par overall.

Westwood tees off in South Africa today with Shane Lowry and Emiliano Grillo.

Fellow Worksop export Mark Foster is second after one round of the Australian PGA Championship, thanks to a three under par round of 69.

He trails leader Zander Lombard by two shots.
