Fresh after win in Bangkok he will back in Asean soon
Defending champion Lee Westwood will return to Malaysia to defend his title at the Maybank Malaysian Open 2015.
Flamboyant Frenchman, Victor Dubuisson will also be joining him as the national Open celebrates its tenth anniversary under Maybank's title sponsorship. These two (2) star players will be joining their former Ryder Cup teammates, Graeme McDowell and captain Paul McGinley as announced previously. This fantastic four that was a part of the winning team for the Ryder Cup 2014 is expected to make waves among fans next February.
Former world number one Westwood, ended a near two-year absence from the winner's circle in style when he romped to a seven-shot victory at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club in April for his 41st worldwide career title.
The 41-year-old Englishman is fighting fit as he looks to lift the Seagram Trophy for the third time, thanks to an intensive fitness regime in the build-up to the Ryder Cup.
"You have to play really well to win any tournament by seven shots. I played really nicely that week and didn’t make many mistakes, which was key to my victory. If I can stay solid from tee to green, I don't see why I can’t be in contention again," said the hugely-popular Westwood, who has been a regular in these parts since 1994.
