• Dunne holds nerve for maiden win at Close House


  • Welcome to the British Masters

The European Tour travels to Close House, in Newcastle upon Tyne, for the first time in its history for the 2017 British Masters supported by Sky Sports from September 28-October 1.

Tournament host Lee Westwood, who has been Close House’s Touring Professional since 2011, won the British Masters at The Belfry in 2007, before narrowly missing out on successfully defending the title 12 months later when he lost in a play-off to Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño at the same venue.

Westwood succeeds Luke Donald in the role following the success of The Grove, meaning for the second consecutive year the host of the British Masters will be a former World Number One.
