London, Apr.3 (ANI): British golfer Lee Westwood insists he would be happy to be paired with Tiger Woods at The Masters next week.

The Sun quoted the world No 4, as saying: "I'd love to be paired with Tiger. I don't think there will be any issues for the rest of the players. The only issue is going to be for Tiger, whether he is ready and whether he can handle the media spotlight."

"But he still has a lot to deal with. It's not easy to just pick up where you left off when you haven't hit a shot in anger for so long. I would say a successful week for him would be a top-10 finish. Having not played since November it will be very difficult to go straight into what is about the toughest test of the year," he added.

Westwood thrived when he was drawn with Woods and Japan's Ryo Ishikawa - who also attracts enormous media interest - at last year's Open.

His playing partners missed the cut at Turnberry but the Worksop ace finished third. (ANI)
