Lee Westwood was able to put his Open disappointment behind him by hosting a coaching masterclass with youngsters as part of the Lee Westwood Golf Academy at Rudding Park, Harrogate, in partnership with The Co-operative.

After finishing in a disappointing 3rd place at Turnberry in the Open on Sunday after three putting the 72nd hole Westwood showed that he was not hiding from the game.

Lee said: “It’s been great to go from the drama of The Open to running the academy masterclass this week. The beauty of these academies is that they are designed to suit anyone from beginner level to advanced player, which allows everyone to improve their golf. The skills and enthusiasm the youngsters at Rudding Park displayed was extremely impressive to watch and hopefully we can unearth some stars of the future.”
