Maybank Malaysian Open

Both Lee Westwood and Mark Foster will be in action at the Maybank Malaysian Open at Kuala Lumpur Golf Club this weekend.

Westwood will be looking to retain the title he won so impressively in 2014, when he blitzed the field for a seven stroke victory.

It was his 23rd career European Tour title and the venue obviously holds fond memories.

The 41-year-old said: “I am looking forward to going back there.”

“It’s obviously a golf course I play very well on and it’ll be nice to go back and defend.

“It’s always nice going back to defend a tournament.”

Foster has also tasted success at this event, where he finished tied for sixth place in 2013, when thunderstorms reduced it to a three-round affair.
