Westwood unlikely to feature at Masters

European Order of Merit champion Lee Westwood is putting family ahead of the US Masters.

The Englishman is still awaiting the birth of his first child and looks unlikely to feature in this year's event at Augusta.

Westwood's wife Laurae is due to give birth on Saturday and he has said there is no way he will leave for America before becoming a father.

Even if the baby is born before play starts, Westwood is unlikely to leave so soon after the birth.

"The baby is due on the Saturday of the Masters and if it hasn't arrived by then I won't play," Westwood had said in the run-up to the tournament.

"It's our first child and babies are a higher priority than golf."
