Westwood still fancies Masters chances

Bet on golfLee Westwood has not given up on winning the Masters and believes he can overturn a five-shot deficit at Augusta on Sunday (Westwood – 40/1 Masters Outright – In-play).

The Englishman continues his quest for a first Major later but will have to make up significant ground on joint leaders Brandt Snedeker (9/4) and Angel Cabrera (9/2).

Westwood’s third round of 73 leaves him on -2 going into the final day, five behind the leaders on a congested board, but he still believes the tournament is there for the winning.

He said: “If you can catch it up around anywhere, it’s around this golf course. I just didn’t make it up on the par-fives today, only parred all of them.

“It was a 73 that could have been a 70, but I still feel like I’m going to have a chance.”

Meanwhile, Westwood’s fellow countryman, Justin Rose (100/1), who began Saturday alongside him on -1 overall, has slipped down the leaderboard after a 75 to leave him seven adrift on level par.

World number two Rory McIlroy also struggled in his third round, posting a 79 to leave him way behind on five over par, while former Masters winners Charl Schwartzel (+1) and Bubba Watson (+2) will also need big final rounds to stand any chance of further Augusta glory.
