Lee Westwood will reunite with longtime caddie Billy Foster at next week's Northwestern Mutual World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif., according to a report in the Daily Telegraph. Westwood and Foster split up after Foster injured his right knee playing soccer at the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship.

“Everyone knows that Lee and Billy were a great partnership and it made sense that now Billy is fully fit again that the partnership reforms,” Westwood's manager, Chubby Chandler, told the Daily Telegraph. “… They’ve had their heart-to-heart, sorted out whatever needed sorting out, and Billy will be back on Lee’s bag permanently, starting at Tiger’s event next week.”

Westwood won eight times and reached No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking with Foster on the bag during their three years together. Westwood also had six top-three finishes in majors during their time together. Foster has been working for Branden Grace, a member of this year's International Presidents Cup team.

Westwood is playing this week's Franklin Templeton Shootout with Ian Poulter and next week's Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. He'll return at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, where he finished third at the 2008 U.S. Open.
