Lee Westwood

Birdie: Lee Westwood

This is right around the time when we'd mention Westwood's shortcomings in majors. His 67 starts without a win is the most among active players. The difference is Westwood has had such a dreadful summer -- missing the cut in both the U.S. and British Opens -- it didn't seem relevant. Well, now it is. After a closing 63 Sunday in the Bridgestone Invitational, Westwood carried the momentum into Thursday with an opening 65, matching his best-ever score in a major. Maybe he'll fall just short again this week. But at least now it looks like he'll have a chance. --SW
