It’s the Alstom Open de France this week at Le Golf National in Paris and Lee Westwood hopes to add his name to the list of greats that have won this event.
The World Number Three from Worksop played the event for the first time back in 1994, but despite some impressive performances over the years he is yet to be victorious at this challenging golf course.
Westwood’s last tournament on European soil saw him win easily by five shot at the Nordea Masters, and hopes were high when he went into the final day at the US Open in contention until losing his ball in a tree at the sixth.
“I played well at the US Open,” he added. “I got a bit unlucky the last day, but other than that I played solidly.
“So I’m looking forward to this week and then The Open Championship in a couple of week’s time.
Surely it’s his time to win a major, could the Open be the one??
Starting with a win here could set him up perfectly!
