Lee fired up

Have your say

Worksop’s Lee Westwood is in action today for the first time since missing the cut at The Open last month in the Bridgestone Invitational.

The tournament at the Firestone Country Club in Ohio, USA, is also the comeback of former world No 1 Tiger Woods, who last played at The Players’ Championship in May.

Westwood will be hoping to do better than last year when he withdrew from the tournament after 36 holes due to a calf injury.

He’s paired for the opening two days with Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell.
