Westwood “right there” at Masters

Lee Westwood (6/1 the Masters 2012 outright) insisted his disappointing finish to his second round at the Masters 2012 will not harm his chances in what is shaping up to be an exciting second half to the year’s first Major.

Westwood, the overnight leader after the first day, continued his impressive form on day two at Augusta with 10 straight pars before he bogeyed the 11th after driving into the trees and hacking out.

The Englishman recovered from that brief setback, though, and hit a birdie on the 15th to move him to six under for the first time.

However, his round ended with a double bogey at the 18th to leave Westwood one shot adrift of the halfway leaders Jason Dufner (16/1 outright) and Fred Couples (20/1) on -4.

Despite the poor finish, Westwood said he was pleased overall with his day’s work and was happy he was very much in contention to claim his long-awaited first major.

He told Sky Sports: “It is a frustrating way to finish but I am still right there in the golf tournament, so it should be a good weekend.

“I played well but struggled to hole anything on the greens.”

“I hit a lot of good putts but nothing would go in for me. So I had to be patient and I was rewarded with a double bogey at the last!” he joked.
