WESTWOOD: ‘GOLF CAN DO MORE’

Lee Westwood believes that golf as a sport has a long way to go in addressing diversity after he spoke about the issue in a live Instagram interview with CNN.

Westwood, a former world No.1 and two-time European Tour Order of Merit winner, believes that golf is “dominated by white people” and can still do a lot more to become more inclusive.

“Arguably the best player in our sport is black and he’s done a lot to promote golf in different ethnic quarters,” Westwood said.

“But I think we can always do more for sure.

“I think it’s still perceived as a white sport if I’m being completely honest,” the Ryder Cup star added.

“There’s not enough black people that come into the game. I don’t know what the answer is to that but there has to be an answer because sport should be for everybody, shouldn’t it?”
