Lee Westwood finished outside the top 50 at the Italian Open last week, at Golf Club Milano.

The Worksop golfer had three birdies and a bogey in Thursday’s round of 69, before making the cut thanks to a pair of birdies on the back nine in Friday’s 69.

On Saturday the 44-year-old made another four birdies but also had five bogeys to finish the day with a tie of 58th.

And Sunday’s 69 saw him maintain the same position in the field, earning €16,936 in prize money.
