Westwood's Champion Logo

Lee Westwood returned to Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, the scene of one of the greatest moments of his career, to accept a logo which has been specially designed for The Race to Dubai champion. The Englishman enjoyed a double triumph last November, winning the season-ending Dubai World Championship presented by: DP World and with it the inaugural Race to Dubai. As Europe’s Number One, Westwood will wear a special logo on his right sleeve throughout the 2010 season and beyond, representing the feat he achieved last season. The 36 year old went into the Dubai World Championship second in The Race to Dubai Rankings behind Rory McIlroy and knowing he had to better the Northern Irishman’s result to be crowned Europe’s Number One. He took a slender lead into the final day and produced a golfing masterclass to win the tournament by six shots from Ross McGowan and lift both trophies. “When I first heard about The Race to Dubai champion wearing a special logo throughout the following season I thought it was a great idea,” said Westwood. “I will be extremely proud to have such a significant symbol on my shirt.“Winning the inaugural Race to Dubai was one of the finest moments of my career and to wear a logo representing my title as Europe’s Number One is very special. “I am looking forward to going back to Jumeirah Golf Estates and I’m sure it will bring back some very fond memories of my victory in the Dubai World Championship last November.” Keith Waters, The European Tour’s Chief Operating Officer and Director of International Policy, said: “The introduction of the logo, which has been designed by The European Tour and Leisurecorp, will herald the beginning of a legacy and will be worn by each Race to Dubai Champion in the future.“The emblem will be unique to current and past winners of The Race to Dubai and serves as a constant reminder of the significance of the player’s achievement in winning the coveted title. The logo has been designed with The European Tour’s forward-thinking vision for golf in mind and each player wearing it will be an ambassador for the Tour and its premier competition.”
