Lee Westwood recorded what he said was the 15th hole-in-one of his career earlier today in East Lothian.


Playing at The Renaissance, Westwood aced the 148-yard par-3 sixth hole before posing for a picture with his mum Trish and director of golf at the East Lothian resort Russell Smith, who was formerly in the same position at Close House, where Ryder Cup star Westwood is the attached professional.
