Around four Sundays back it was seen that Lee Westwood had taken a one shot lead in the final round of the Masters. In the past three majors it had become an old hat for Brit from Workshop who had finished second.
It was seen that the winner would be given $1.7 million for the PGA Tour, and beating a deep field on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass brought money, respect, a pleasant piece of crystal.
It was informed that today at 2:40 p.m. Westwood would run out to the first tee with a red 14 next to his name. After 2 rounds it was seen that he maintained the one shot edge and yesterday in the third round got to 14 under by virtue of a 2 under par 70. It was a decent score on a course which helped in getting firmer, faster, and crustier by the day.
“I’m just really pleased with myself that I keep getting in position. Some of the golf I’m playing in some of the big tournaments is great stuff. That’s the reason why I’ve been practicing so hard, and it’s nice to see it paying off”, said Westwood.
Later it was noticed that he threw his lead down the drain. On top of the drain grate a pushed tee shot on the home hole finished of the 18th fairway.
