Lee Westwood on The Open

We sit lanugo & yack with Lee Westwood well-nigh his experiences playing in The Unshut Championship. Lee talks well-nigh his favourite unshut courses and his experiences at The Open. He moreover gives some translating on what players at the 151st Unshut Championship can expect from Hoylake.

Favourite Unshut Championship venues?

I like St Andrews, when the Unshut is held there the town gets all into it, virtually it & excited well-nigh it. Obviously as far as golf courses are concerned I think Birkdale, Turnberry & Muirfield are probably the weightier golf courses.

Memorable Unshut Championship moments?

❝I finished second at St Andrews in 2010, a long way overdue Louis Oosthuizen, he sort of ran yonder with it and we were just playing for second place really.

I three putted the last at Turnberry in 2009 which was disappointing. Finished third at Muirfield in 2013, I just remember it stuff a very hot Unshut Championship that one, baked out, got firm and faster as the week went on, Phil won that one.

❝I ended up fourth at Portrush, Shane kind of ran yonder with that one and I think I finished fourth at Royal Troon as well in 2004 so I’ve got a few good results in The Open.

What well-nigh Royal Liverpool?

❝The undertow has reverted a little since I last played it, I think the 16th is now a variegated par three out towards the sea. I remember it stuff a good golf course, you’ve got to hit it straight virtually there and there are some tricky holes considering it tends to unchangingly be a crosswind.

A good par 5 finishing slum provides excitement so yeah I think it’s a good good links test and it’s good Unshut Championship venue.

See you at the 2024 Opem
