24th Annual Turtle Trot 5K
We all know the story of the tortoise and the hare. It’s a classic! In this case, you can be the tortoise or the hare and win big at the 24th Annual Turtle Trot!

Lee Westwood ened a two year winless drought in dominating fashion, winning the Malaysian Open on the European Tour Sunday.

Westood went wire-to-wire to win the event despite having to sit through a four hour weather delay in the middle of the final round. The Old Palm resident shot a final round 68 to win by seven shots for his 36th career victory.

Westwood entered the final
