The Englishman enjoyed a double triumph last November, winning the season-ending Dubai World Championship presented by DP World and with it the inaugural Race to Dubai. As Europe's Number One, Westwood will wear a special logo on his right sleeve throughout the 2010 season and beyond, representing the feat he achieved last season.

“When I first heard about The Race to Dubai champion wearing a special logo throughout the following season I thought it was a great idea,” said Westwood. “I will be extremely proud to have such a significant symbol on my shirt.

“Winning the inaugural Race to Dubai was one of the finest moments of my career and to wear a logo representing my title as Europe's Number One is very special.

“I am looking forward to going back to Jumeirah Golf Estates and I'm sure it will bring back some very fond memories of my victory in the Dubai World Championship last November.”

Keith Waters, The European Tour's Chief Operating Officer and Director of International Policy, said: “The introduction of the logo, which has been designed by The European Tour and Leisurecorp, will herald the beginning of a legacy and will be worn by each Race to Dubai Champion in the future.
