Westwood: Three doubles, one triple in Kingsbarns 82


Lee Westwood has one more round to play in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, and hopefully it’s better than the first two.

Westwood shot 10-over-par 82 in the second round of the event at Kingsbarns. He opened with a 3-over 75 at Carnoustie. At 13 over par, overall, he is in last place.

Westwood will play his third round on Saturday on the Old Course at St. Andrews. A cut will then be made for the final round at St. Andrews.

Westwood is coming off a dismal Ryder Cup performance, in which he went 0-3 as a captain’s pick in Europe’s losing effort. Westwood missed a number of key, short putts in his team matches and blew a 2-up lead with three to play against Ryan Moore, losing the final three holes, and the match.

Friday at Kingsbarns, Westwood had four double bogeys and a triple bogey, to go along with three birdies and two bogeys.

Thursday at Carnoustie, he had two eagles to offset a pair of double bogeys, along with two birdies and five bogeys.
