Lee Westwood cruised through his opening match at the World Matchplay championship in Spain yesterday.

The world number one easily saw off Denmark’s Anders Hansen 6&5 to take control of Pool A. Westwood was six up after 11 holes and closed the match out on the 13th.

With the top two from each Pool qualifying for the weekend’s knock-out stages it seems unlikely that the Worksop-based golfer won’t make it through.

He takes on Australian Aaron Bradley this afternoon.
