This looks very messy as families of students at the Lee Westwood Golf School are sueing and themselves getting sued over broken promises.

Promises promises. The Lee Westwood golf school promised to turn students into stars.
Students pay £15,000 a year to the academy which promises "to turn children into the stars of the future."

According to the Daily Mail yesterday
The Lee Westwood Golf School in Cheshire charged pupils £15,000 a year, promising to turn children into the stars of the future. 
However several families, who were charged some £10,000 a year for tuition and £5,000 for accommodation, claim they were sued after leaving before the end of the course.

And it seems Lee Westwood told The Times he was cutting his links to the school.

The Mail continues
The Cheshire-based academy, which opened in 2011, has received state funds - but the local authority was not required to inspect hotel accommodation for students.  
Students attend the college on a full-time basis and work within a structured, 'continually assessed golf and education programme utilising the latest training methods and techniques'. 
The school says pupils receive guidance and assistance from qualified PGA coaches and educational tutors. 
Several families are now counter-suing in a case due for trial in November.

According to The Times, setting out their case, families said there was a 'sharp decline' in the quality of tuition, an lack of supervision for students staying overnight, and a 'aggressive legal stance' taken by the school, among other concerns. 

The school’s founder Karl Morris (not the mental coach Karl Morris), emailed the Times to say ‘we are unable to comment… as these matters relate to the on-going legal proceedings for unpaid school fees. We expressly reserve our position including the right to refer this matter to the Independent Press Standards Organisation.’
