Lee Westwood: Great to be back at Muirfield

Lee Westwood has set his sights on a fifth consecutive top-10 finish on the PGA Tour, as he returns to Muirfield to play the Memorial Tournament for the first time in ten years.

The world number 10 arrives in Dublin, Ohio, off the back of last week's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth - the European Tour's flagship event - having turned in another impressive performance after finishing tied-ninth on seven-under-par, just three shots behind eventual winner Matteo Manassero of Italy.

As attention now turns to preparations for the upcoming US Open at Merion next month, Westwood is back on American soil, looking to fine tune his game, starting with this week's competition at Muirfield Village.

Jack Nicklaus's home tournament is one of the seasons most prestigious events outside of the four majors, and will feature a stellar field that includes seven of the world's current top ten golfers, including the defending champion Tiger Woods.

"It's nice to be back," said Westwood at today's pre-tournament press conference. "Obviously with Jack's name associated with the Tour, it's obviously a very prestigious one to win and that's why it attracts such a good field.

"I'm playing pretty consistently. Four top-10s on the PGA Tour, and top-10 last week in Europe. 

"I'm looking forward to this week, and hopefully just keep playing as I am, and hopefully get in contention and finish it off."
