Lee Westwood and looper Billy Foster to reunite at World Challenge

Reunited, and it feels so good.

Some 18 months after they parted ways, Lee Westwood and long-time caddie Billy Foster will reunite next week at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge, according to the Telegraph.

The two split in 2012 after the looper's knee injury forced Westwood to end their relationship. Foster was hurt playing in a caddie soccer game at the Wells Fargo Championship. Westwood found a replacement caddie with the intention of bringing Foster back when he was healthy, but the recovery took longer than anticipated. By the time Foster was again ready to caddie for the former world No. 1, it was simply too late.

According to the Telegraph, Westwood's manager, Chubby Chandler, arranged a recent meeting of the two. Foster, who took the break-up hard, and Westwood agreed to work together again. Westwood ended his relationship with Mike Kerr while Foster did the same with Branden Grace, his current bag.
