BRIT SET FOR £2 MILLION WINDFALL IF HE MASTERS AUGUSTA
Lee Westwood will tee off the third round of The Masters at three under par tomorrow as he aims to finally net his first major title and, courtesy of sponsors Dunlop, a bumper £2 million bonus to go with it.
The Worksop Wonder is widely considered to be one of the best players never to win a major and it’s an accolade he’d be delighted to shed by emerging victorious this weekend and donning the famous green jacket.
Westwood, who endorses Dunlop clothing only, will also land a massive £2 million courtesy of a unique sponsorship deal he enjoys with the leading golf brand. The agreement stipulates that the Englishman is entitled to scoop £2 million for every major championship victory,
The Ryder Cup stalwart finished second at Augusta in 2010 and he’ll become the first British winner since Nick Faldo in 1996 should he go one better this weekend. If Westwood does secure The Masters title on Atlanta’s most famous golf course, his sponsors will be the first to toast his success.
