British Open Championship Update Round 3: Lee Westwood Leads, Tiger Woods Lurks
Round 3 at the British Open Championship is in the books and Lee Westwood is one round away from conquering the beast that is Muirfield Golf Course.
Going into play on Saturday we were all convinced that Miguel Angel Jimenez was the one who would reel in the Claret Jug this year. However, after 54 holes at the British Open the Jimenez bandwagon is completely empty as he shot five over par and has dropped from the No. 1 spot all the way to 11th place.
Instead, Westwood is the clubhouse leader and is one of three players to be under par going into Round 4.
Adam Scott sits at No. 4 and is my pick to reel in the Claret Jug on Sunday and it’s because of how consistent he’s been all weekend. Not to mention, Scott is still upset about choking away last year’s Open Championship with a few ill-timed bogeys. Everyone remembers just how awful Scott played down the stretch in 2012 and he will avenge that collapse with a major victory nearly a year later.
As always, Tiger Woods is also in the hunt.
Keep in mind that Woods has never won a major tournament while trailing going into the last round and currently sits two strokes behind Westwood at -1. Does Tiger have what it takes to reel in his first major victory since 2008, or is the field just too powerful this time around?
