Lee Westwood focused on strong end to the season


Westwood fit and raring to go

World number two Lee Westwood says he will play in three more events before the end of the year as he continues his recovery from a calf injury.

Westwood will compete in China, Dubai and Sun City in South Africa.

"I've done a lot of rehabilitation work recently so I'm looking forward to being able to fire at 110% again," the Worksop star told East Midlands Today.

"I'd like to finish off strongly this year if possible but obviously I'll be a bit rusty in the next three events."

Westwood, who could overtake Tiger Woods as world number one, added: "I'm really looking forward to next year now. Hopefully, I can get myself in good shape for when the Masters comes round in April.


"Tiger has made the top spot his own over the past few years but if you can get to world number one in the Tiger era - that would be a very special thing to achieve.

"Myself and Tiger have grown up playing professional golf together our careers pretty much started at the same time and we have a lot of mutual admiration and respect for each other."

The Champions event takes place in China from 4-7 November while the Dubai World Championship starting on 25 November ends the 2010 season.

The Sun City Challenge from 2-5 December takes place before the 2011 European Tour season starts the following week.

Westwood is not the only player in the running to overtake Woods at the top of the world rankings as Germany's Martin Kaymer could also move ahead of the American.
