Following the success of the inaugural Lee Westwood Golf Academies in 2009 the English Golf Union (EGU) is pleased to announce their continued support to the initiative from one of the EGU's most successful former players.

Lee Westwood was a member of the EGU's Coaching Squad and represented England in the Home Internationals in 1993 before turning pro. Since then, Lee has had a victorious career, with 18 European Tour titles to his name, recently winning the Dubai World Championship and ending his season last year as Europe's number one.

After a successful first year, the Westwood Academies are back with an exciting edition to the programme. There will be 17 three day academies and the chance to attend a five day residential academy which focuses closely on coaching and includes a visit from Lee Westwood.

As in 2009, the Westwood Academy coaching programme will cover every aspect of the game, incorporating 'off-course' sessions on etiquette, rules, marking your card, nutrition, fitness and psychology.

There is also a competitive part to the Academy where attendees will play in a series of competitions on and off the course.

The overall winner from these competitions from each Academy will win a day's golf with Lee Westwood at Lindrick Golf Club on 30th August 2010.

Discussing last year's Academies, Lee Westwood commented, "I was delighted with how my Academies started in 2009 and I am excited about the prospect of expanding and making the experience even more worthwhile for the youngsters that attend. I am very passionate about my Academy and, with the support of the English Golf Union, I am certain they will grow from strength to strength."

The Co-operative is also continuing their support as title sponsors for the Westwood Academies along with Ping, Titleist, Solar Sport and the British Junior Golf Tour.
