LEE Westwood is open to the possibility of partnering Rory McIlroy at the Ryder Cup, dispelling talk of a feud.

Speculation of a rift has been rife since McIlroy quit the management company Westwood has been with for 20 years, with the two then exchanging views over the split on Twitter.

But the Worksop star says: “There is nothing there. Fans must watch us having banter on the course thinking ‘so where is this grudge?’ So he left the management company I’m with. So what? It was a business decision. There is nothing personal. There is nothing between us personally that would get in the way. Who wouldn’t want to play with Rory when he’s in this nick. I’d love to. It’d be good. We’d make a ton of birdies.”
