Brit set for £2 million windfall if he masters Augusta
Lee Westwood will tee off at Augusta National aiming to finally net his first major title and, courtesy of sponsors Dunlop, a bumper £2 million bonus to go with it.
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.
David Newbury, Dunlop's Head of Marketing, said: "We wish Lee every success at Augusta. He's been one of the world's leading players for many years and we'd be delighted if The Masters finally brings him the major victory his career deserves - even if it does mean signing a rather large cheque!"
