Lee WestwoodLee Westwood is relishing his return to the Maybank Malaysian Open as the Englishman takes the strong form he showed in Dubai to a venue upon which he blitzed the field a year ago en route to a seven-stroke victory.

The 41-year-old added a 23rd European Tour title to his victory canon at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club with a wire to wire win last April, leaving runners up Nicolas Colsaerts, Louis Oosthuizen and Bernd Wiesberger in his wake.

Fresh from a top-ten finish in his first appearance of the season at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic last week, the eight-time Ryder Cup player is hoping that his hot form, allied with fond memories of last year’s triumph, will equate to a successful title defense.
