Lee Westwood praises Old Palm on ESPN Radio
Old Palm resident and professional golfer Lee Westwood was interviewed on ESPN Radio recently and had plenty to say about living hereâall of it highly complimentary. Having just moved permanently from England to Old Palmâs elegant Custom Estates neighborhood, Westwood was enthused about the Raymond Floyd-designed golf course, unrivaled Golf Studio, and the warm welcome he and his family have received from all the other residents.
âThe facilities at Old Palm are second to none,â said Westwood, who has notched 39 career victories worldwide and is currently ninth in the World Golf Rankings. âI can just cruise out of the door and go hit balls. The greens are perfect, and the fairways are perfect. Itâs a good spot to be.â
Living at Old Palm eliminates the grueling commute that Westwood had to endure when traveling from England to America to play in PGA Tour tournaments. Now, he can just zip off to the events in no time. In fact, this weekâs Honda Classic is being played almost across the street.
âIt will be the first time in my career that I will ever have a home game,â he said, âso thatâs a real bonus.â
The 39-year-old Westwood won twice last year and is looking forward to a productive 2013 season, especially when playing in the United States. Considering the convenience and advantages of living at Old Palm, it will come as no surprise if Westwood has a banner year.
