LEE WESTWOOD | BRITISH MASTERS

Lee Westwood will be taking next year’s British Masters to Close House, according to Sky Sports commentator Ewen Murray.


While no official announcement has been about the 2017 venue of the Sky Sports-sponsored event as of yet, Murray all but confirmed the news when asked the question on Twitter.




Westwood, of course, is the attached professional at Close House – situated less than ten miles west of Newcastle – and was heavily involved in the design of the resort’s two courses, both of which adorn his name.

For Close House, it would be by far the biggest event it has held to date, having also hosted the ISPS Handa PGA Seniors Championship on the Senior Tour and the Lookers Championship on the EuroPro Tour.

Westwood finished third at the British Masters, three strokes behind Swede Alex Noren in what was his best result so for this season aside from his runner-up finish at The Masters.

“It has been a successful week,” he said. “Obviously the Ryder Cup was disappointing for many reasons, for everybody, really. And then last week I struggled to sort of get back into it and get my tournament head on.
"This week, everything has been back together and played well" - Lee Westwood

“This week, everything has been back together and played well. Everything was good. Nice performance. Finished top three, so pleased with that.”
