Trade In Mobile To Get Hands On Lee Westwood App

Fans of golf – and, in particular, Lee Westwood – might have been given the perfect reason to trade in their mobile and switch to an Apple iPhone.

The Worksop-born player has released his own official app in conjunction with developer Athlete Factor.

It will feature news, views and videos from Westwood, including his view on tournaments and matches he is taking part in.

Westwood said: "This is ground breaking in terms of apps and I'm sure everybody is going to get a great deal of fun and entertainment out of it."

Other sports stars to team up with the developer in order to create their own app include fellow golfer Rory McIlroy and England rugby player James Haskell.

Another sporting app to hit the headlines in recent times is Aussie Rules Live, which was named App of the Week by Smart Company as the sport's new season draws closer.
