Lee Westwood's stroke of chance

Posted by Admin On 10:55 AM

Lee Westwood has always talked about the fine line between achievement and failure and he illustrated the point perfectly at the PGA Championship. Two over par with one hole to play in his USPGA Championship first round in Atlanta, Westwood's drive avoid the lake by inches and in its place of a likely double-bogey if he had gone in the water he birdied for a 71.

Seriously, I did turn a six into a three, he said.I pull it and it land on the wall and shot out onto the fairway.The world number two is trying to complete the 'Chubby Slam' this week, manager Andrew 'Chubby' Chandler having previously seen his clients Charl Schwartzel, Rory McIlroy and Darren Clarke win the first three majors of the period.

The stable's leading player overnight, though, was Yorkshire's Simon Dyson. Winner of the Irish Open only two weeks ago, he handed in a two-under 68 to be in joint fifth place.I've still got the same feelings I had at The Open (he was ninth there) and in Ireland,Dyson said.

Eighteen-year-old Italian Matteo Manassero and Dane Anders Hansen are alongside him, while Londoner Brian Davis shot 69.World number one Luke Donald double-bogeyed the 15th, but matched McIlroy's level-par 70.

Two over par with one hole to play in his USPGA finals first round in Atlanta, Westwood's drive avoided the lake by inches and instead of a likely double-bogey if he had gone in the water he birdied for a 71.
