GULLANE, Scotland (AP)

A glance at Saturday's third round of the British Open at 7,192-yard, par-71 Muirfield.

Leading: Lee Westwood, who shot 2-under 70 for a 210 total.

Just Behind: Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods, who shot 68 and 72, respectively, and at 212 were the only other players in the field under par.

Where's Phil?: Mickelson was tied for ninth at 2 over after a 72.

Notable: Woods has 14 majors, second only to Jack Nicklaus' 18, but he's never come from behind to win one.

Quotable: ''Actually I'm not in a high-pressure situation because I'm only going to have dinner. I'm so good with a knife and fork now, I don't feel any pressure at all.'' - Westwood, who has never won a major, on how he'll handle the 54-hole lead.
