The Betfred British Masters will return to Close House, in Newcastle upon Tyne, in 2020 with former World Number One Lee Westwood becoming the first player to host the European Tour tournament twice.
Following the success of this year’s event at Hillside Golf Club in Southport, where Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood took on the hosting duties, Westwood will reprise the role from July 30 to August 2, 2020, at Close House, the venue he has been attached to as Touring Professional for eight years.
Close House previously hosted the British Masters in 2017, when Ireland’s Paul Dunne produced a spectacular finish, chipping in on the last hole to finish three shots clear of four-time Major Champion Rory McIlroy.
