Lee Westwood: More Championships should be played outside the US

World number one Lee Westwood would like to see golfers being able to show off their smart golf clothing at more Championship events outside the US.

The English golfer said that he thinks too many of the major events take place in the States and that more should be done to promote the sport elsewhere.

"We're trying to push the game around the world and it's part of having it in the Olympics coming up (in 2016), trying to create enthusiasm in places like China and around Asia and South America," he said.

"You ought to take these big tournaments to those places. That would be my only change. The formats are great."

Earlier today, Westwood was knocked out of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona at the hands of Nick Watney, the second time in as many years he has been beaten by the US player.

After the match he said that he hadn't been putting well all day.
