Westwood pays price for loose shot
Lee Westwood maintained his daily average of six birdies at windy Wentworth on Saturday - but once again paid a big price for one bad shot.
After going out of bounds on the 17th in his second-round 75, the world number three - who survived the halfway cut with nothing to spare in the BMW PGA Championship - ran up another seven on the 470-yard 13th.
It might have been worse. He sank a 30-foot putt for a triple bogey after driving into sand, failing to get out, taking a penalty drop and then leaving it in again. He followed that, however, by almost winning a car for a hole-in-one on the next and went on to card a two-under-par 70.
"I think it lipped out," said Westwood, who is one under for the tournament.
"But I've just got a destructive one in there. It's a bit of a pull hook and it's my bad shot when I'm not swinging well.
"I'm a bit tired - I've played a lot this year already."
