A Major victory is the one glaring omission from Lee Westwood’s CV but the Englishman hopes to fill that gap in April.
Westwood, who is 16/1 with bet365 to win the US Masters this year, looked certain to break his duck at Augusta two years ago, but was denied by two fantastic rounds by Phil Mickelson.
But the world number two is happy with the way he has begun the new season and is confident he can end his wait for a Major this year.
Westwood told Sky Sports: “Hopefully I’ll win it. I think this year could be it. I’m certainly playing well enough and getting my game together.
“I’ve been working hard and putting in a lot of preparation, so hopefully all that will click into place.”
