CONGRATULATIONS LEE WESTWOOD
At a time when we are itching to return to the golf course ourselves it was fantastic to watch ‘our Lee’ competing so successfully in both the Arnold Palmer Invitational and then The Players’ Championship this weekend. Albeit he missed out by a single stroke in each event he did Nottinghamshire Golf, England Golf and himself proud. Not only did he compete fantastically but his behaviour and conduct in both tournaments has been a pleasure to behold.
Many of you will know that Lee began his golfing career at Worksop GC and proudly represented the County until he turned professional in 1993. Subsequently, he has become ‘a world beater’, winning tournaments throughout the world. He has become a major influence on European golf and a regular pick for the Europe Ryder Cup team since 1997.
But, who would have imagined he would still be turning in such exemplary performances at age 47.
Lee has been runner up in the Masters twice and with this year’s Masters on the horizon, we hope he can sustain his rich vein of form. Best of luck Lee in everything you do. We want you to know how proud we are of you, and of course fingers crossed.
