Westy rested and ready

Lee Westwood is rested and ready for The Open Championship at Muirfield next week.

The Worksop man has taken some time off ahead of the third major of 2013, changing his usual routine

“Normally I’d play the French Open or the Scottish Open, but this time I’ve had three weeks off to relax and recharge my batteries.”

“I’ve played okay this year, without any really great results, but I have had a couple of chances to win.”

“My whole game’s good, so I’m looking forward to getting going next week and playing The Open again.”

The 40-year-old, now a native of Florida, may have got used to pleasant weather conditions on the other side of the Atlantic.

But he’s ready for whatever is thrown at him in Scotland.

“It will be a tough test. If there’s a nice breeze blowing around there it will be a difficult Open.”

“The rough’s up but the fairways and greens, everything’s in superb condition. It could be a great Open.”

“I dont really mind what kind of weather it is,” he added.
