Westwood to play with Stricker and Schwartzel at The Open

LEE Westwood will begin his major challenge at Royal St George’s on Thursday at 2.10pm.

The Worksop golfer, who finished tied for 14th at the Scottish Open this weekend, is to play alongside Steve Stricker and 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel.

Westwood was 12 under at Castle Stuart as world number one Luke Donald romped home to a four shot victory.

Mark Foster was also tied for 14th with Westwood, but needed to win the tournament to qualify for The Open in Kent.
