Northumberland gets first 'Lee Westwood' golf course

Northumberland has officially become home to the world's first 'Lee Westwood' golf course.

After finishing joint third in the British Open at the weekend, the world number 10 has been at Close House to open the 'Lee Westwood Filly Course'.

The 40-year-old said: "It was a good week last week. Stressful but I enjoyed it. Shame it didn't quite finish how I wanted it to but I can build on that over the next few weeks."

"It's nice to be here [in Northumberland] and it's another feather in the cap of Close House opening the Filly Course."

Westwood is also leading a team of pro golfers in a match against the media.
