Can Lee Westwood finally win a major and cap the best period of form in his career so far?
Can Westwood’s putting hold out for one more day?
It’s been great so far this week after previous performances when he didn’t look like he knew which end of the club to hold.
For the last 2 years or so it hasn’t been a problem getting the ball from tee to green, it’s what has happened on the green that is generally the problem.
It was remarkable on Saturday to see both, Westwood and Poulter at the top of the leaderboard and the last pairing. How ofter have we seen two Englishmen in that position on the 3rd day of a major? Just a shame Poulter fell away.
If Westwood can win it, he can say he did it the hard way. He will be partnering Phil Mickelson, and will also have Tiger Woods breathing down his neck, any success Westwood might have will be well earned.
Westwood (-12) and Mickelson (-11) are the leaders, and the two bookies favourites. Sky Bet are the best price and can’t seperate them both at 13/8. They will go out as the last pairing in Sunday’s final round.
Woods is still hanging in there at -8, and is still dangerous. A Woods surge could put unbearable pressure on the rest of the leaderboard, it wouldn’t be the first time it cracked a fellow pro mentally. He can be backed at 9/2 with Sky Bet, Totesport, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and William Hill to pull off another victory.
Can’t wait to see what happens, come on Westwood, you can do it.
