Lee Westwood was at Lindrick Golf Club on Thursday 3rd July to officially open a second players' tunnel.
The new access, which links holes 11 and 12, improves safety by eliminating the need to cross the A57. It takes recent expenditure at the famous old club - home of the 1957 Ryder Cup - past £1million.
Lindrick pro John King, who coached Westwood as a junior, said: "It was lovely to catch up with Lee. His time is precious so we'redelighted he offered to cut the ribbon for us."
Lee Westwood said: "It's really nice to be invited back. I've spent over 20 years walking this lovely course and the final tunnel will not only make play safer but enhance Lindrick status even further in the world of golf".
The first tunnel, opened in 2010, links holes 17 and 18.
Worksop lad Westwood is a former world No1, European Tour Order of Merit winner and a Ryder Cup hero.
