Lee Westwood's year begins with a victory

January 13, 2011

OK, so it was horse racing. Our Giant, a horse in which Lee Westwood, No. 1 in the World Ranking, and his agent Chubby Chandler own shares, won his race at the Dubai International Racing Carnival today at Meydan Racecourse.

"But I won't be celebrating this win as I'm in town for a golf tournament and I came back from my holidays a little overweight," Westwood told the National.

Westwood is there in preparation for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship next week.
