Westwood takes command in Indonesia
Lee Westwood took a commanding five-shot lead after the third round of the Indonesian Masters on Saturday, shooting a second straight 6-under 66 despite a bogey on the last hole.
Westwood can reclaim the No. 1 ranking from Martin Kaymer with a victory if Luke Donald fails to win The Heritage at Hilton Head Island, S.C. Donald held a one-stroke lead after 36 holes.
Westwood started with three straight birdies Saturday before dropping a shot on the fourth. He added five more birdies before faltering on the par-5 18th — which he had birdied in the last two rounds — for a 16-under total of 200.
”This course is one of the best courses in Asia and the greens were great after last night’s rain,” Westwood said.
Thitiphun Chuayprakong of Thailand and Park Hyun-bin of South Korea were tied for second.
