Then that happened.
Westwood had a terrible lie on the first hole, with the ball resting between the edge of the rough and a patch of pine needles, with a tree inhibiting his backswing. But the man is a professional golfer, who has undoubtedly faced his fair share of difficult shots in his career, so it was quite surprising to see Westwood completely whiff on the shot, like some weekend duffer.
The Englishman would go on to double-bogey the hole, then repeat that score on the 4th hole to fall out of contention. Tiger Woods would win the tournament at 13-under after Sergio Garcia imploded, when the Spaniard went 6-over on the final two holes in a choke job of Jean van de Velde proportions.
