Westwood looks for a birthday gift

LEE Westwood is hoping to celebrate his birthday in style, with a win at the Indonesian Masters this weekend.

The Worksop golfer turns 38, and would love to give himself the perfect gift, and bounce back from his US Masters disappointment, but admitted it would not be an easy task at Royal Jakarta Golf Club.

“It will be nice to win because my birthday is on Sunday, but it will be difficult as there are a lot of strong players out here in Asia,” he said.

“You have to be sharp and you need to be in shape. It’s one of toughest tests in Asia.”

World number two Westwood has won previously in the Far East, at Malaysia, Macau and Japan.
