For Course and Country Lee Westwood is the face of the European Tour, to the point that no one was surprised when he (yet again) turned down a PGA Tour card to continue playing across the pond in 2011. But the relationship between the Euro Tour and the world's newest No. 1 player is not all peaches and cream.
The Open and the BMW PGA Championship are the only two events being staged in England in 2011. Why? “I can’t get my head around it. English golf has never been so strong, we have 10 world-class Englishmen and we should all be getting together and playing an English Open or a European Open in England, even if the European Tour has to fund it.
“If the Tour want me to be an ambassador for an English Open then I am quite happy to do that.”
"Organizers of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic are offering amateur golfers the chance of a lifetime to play alongside Tiger Woods during the Pro Am tournament at the Emirates Golf Club on February 9, 2011.
Amateur golfers holding a valid handicap may visit the tournament website – www.golfindubai.org – to register online for free. A draw will be held two weeks before the start of the European Tour event to pick the lucky winner, who will join Woods and two other amateurs in the Pro Am, the traditional curtain-raiser a day before the main competition. The winner will also receive two season ‘golf in DUBAI’ hospitality tickets."
