“I came close,” said Westwood. “I won everything there is to win other than a major championship. This is my primary objective and has been a long time to come around since the PGA last year.” One of Westwood’s closest call came two years ago at Augusta, when he started the final round with the lead. But he made a three putt bogey on No. 9 to give it away and ended up as a passer, while Phil Mickelson was handed his third green jacket.
This time, Westwood goes into Friday with a lead of a shot on Louis Oosthuizen and two in front of a group of six, including Paul Lawrie, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Francisco Molinari.The Brit, winner of 36 tournaments worldwide, he hit 16 greens in regulation after a light week of practice in a field that has always felt his game fits. He made four birdies in a row of numbers 5 to 8 and never needed a long putt of 10 feet.
“It ‘s nice to get off to a good start and have a platform to build from” Westwood said.He attacked the course of a soft, damp day that seemed ideal for scoring, but also included the pin placements tougher than usual to a Thursday, a set of golf balls on the fairways saturated confused when they disembarked.
In third place in the world, Westwood could well be the best player Without A Major. He finished in the top three six times since 2008, and has had much time to think about what they need to overcome the hump.
“When you’re in contention and not end up, go home and evaluate what did and what you can improve,” he said. “And this is what I did.” Bubba Watson, Ben Crane and Jason Dufner were other players in the tie at 3 under, with Peter Hanson also to that number, but still in progress.
Rory McIlroy shot 1 under 71 and Tiger Woods finished with a pair of bogeys to shoot even par-72. The bogey on 18 was actually a good save after his tee shot went into the trees and resulted in an unplayable lie.Woods opened its rattling around in his first tee shot from a tree and put the second in the creek well to the left of the second fairway. He recovered pars on both and felt pretty decent for the round, all things considered.
“I hit some of the worst rounds of golf I have ever hit today,” Woods said. “It ‘s OK. I just hung there, adjusted my way around the golf course, remained patient, who was at that time. I could have shot one, maybe two more, but I had a lot of that round.”
In search of his first major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open, Woods has come to play well. Two weeks ago, won his first PGA Tour event in 30 months. But on the driving range before his turn, said he felt something crawling on him.
“Old patterns. Some of my old stuff for a few years ago,” he said. “I’m trying to work through it. Occasionally, opens today and it popped up again.” Before Westwood finished his 5 senses, appeared larger story of the day would be Henrik Stenson, who spent most of the day and was in the lead at 5 under with a lead of two photos while on the tee box of 18 .
He hit that shot deep into the trees on the left and needed two more shots to reach the fairway. All part of a bad 8 a snowman that has dropped to 1 in 71 and in a tie for 15. “This is what happens here,” said Stenson. “It keeps Avalanche and I got the snowman at the end.”

Bad News For Young Sensation Jeremy Lin

Bad News For Young Sensation Jeremy Lin: Jeremy Lin will miss the rest of the regular season because he needs knee surgery that could sideline six weeks and leaving the Knicks without their star point guard in the playoffs if they make it that far.Lin had an MRI exam revealed this week that a small tear meniscus chronic and he chose to have surgery next week in New York.With the regular season ends April 26 the biggest story in the basket is made in this season unless the Knicks make a deep postseason run.jeremy lin
Speaking slowly, during a pregame news conference, Lin could not hide his disappointment at the decision that was reached earlier Saturday after a painful exercise. “It (stinks) could not be there with the team,” has said.Later, has updated his Facebook page with the message: “Thanks for all the love! (I) return to action this stronger and better than before and hopefully in time for the playoffs” Upcoming: Lin surgery.It was hardly a place in the NBA back in February. Now, after back-to-back Sports Illustrated covers and popularity around the world, and now it’s over.
“If this was done very early in the year, obviously I do not know where my career would be. I could be, would surely be out of work and, probably, the fight for a place Summer League,” said Lin. “But that said, this event is just as bad now, because all the players, we really put our hearts and souls into the team and the season, and not being there when it counts the most difficult.”
The Knicks continue to turn to Baron Davis instead of Lin, an undrafted Harvard alum who became the starter in February and turned into a series of brilliant performances, kicking off a phenomenon that has been called Linsanity.
Lin averaged 14.1 points and 6.1 assists, but the numbers tell only a small part of the story.The Knicks were under 0.500 and looking like a mess when Lin was given the opportunity to play extended minutes at point guard for then-coach Mike D’Antoni on Feb. 4 against New Jersey.
Lin, the first American of Chinese or Taiwanese origin player to play in the NBA, scored 25 points with seven assists in the victory of New York, was inserted into the starting lineup two days later against Utah, and took Knicks’ seven-game winning streak that has gained worldwide attention.
The 23-year-old Lin has left the Knicks’ easy victory over Detroit last Saturday after feeling uncomfortable, then saying he could come back for the fourth quarter if the game had been close. He has participated in shootaround before their game Monday, and at first thought he could deal with the pain.
Even if the swelling went down, the pain never did. He said he has three or four opinions that all said the same thing, and after having tested again Friday and Saturday, decided to do the surgery.
“I can not really do much. Can not really shorten or skip, so it’s pretty clear that I will not be able to help the team unless I have this problem right now,” Lin said before the Knicks played in Cleveland. “It ‘s disappointing for me, it is difficult to see the matches and I think I would be out there, of course, more than anything else at this time. But hopefully, this is a process of six weeks of rehab but I tend to heal fast so I hope to return as soon as possible and hopefully help this season. “
And ‘the second serious injury loss this week for the Knicks, who are eighth in the Eastern Conference. Amare Stoudemire is out two to four weeks with a back injury, leaving the Knicks without their second and third leading scorers, perhaps for the rest of the regular season.
Davis is not yet 100 percent after a herniated disk in his back kept him out of action until February. The Knicks also have Mike Bibby and Toney Douglas, Iman Shumpert as most rookie point guard options, but none as good as Lin.
“We must go forward, but he is a big piece of our puzzle and what we were doing as a delay before it actually went off,” interim coach Mike Woodson said. “Everything is not bad. Once again, we have three veteran point guard sitting there and we could play some rookies’ to the point. We’re just going to have to do until they can get back in uniform. But it is hard shot. “
Lin flourished on offense D’Antoni, and there was immediate speculation would have to struggle or even lose his starting spot – when Woodson has replaced him on March 14. Instead, Lin continued to roll, leading the Knicks to six wins in seven games before being injured.
Woodson said that he knew the players who played with meniscus tears, but that only Lin knows her body. Lin knew he would need surgery eventually, but hoped to delay until after the season.
“He chose to have surgery and we must respect, because only he knows the pain he is feeling. And there’s a problem, so it’s got to be fixed,” said Woodson.
The Knicks had already tried three point guards when he finally turned to Lin, who was cut by Houston and Golden State before signing with the Knicks. D’Antoni quickly elevated him to the starting lineup after his performance against the Nets, and Lin responded with the largest tract start ever for an appetizer.
It ‘was the first player with at least 20 points and seven assists in each of his first five starts by Elias Sports Bureau began in 1970 began charting. He had a 3-pointer to win a game in Toronto, scored 38 points to beat Kobe Bryant in a national TV victory over the Lakers, then had 28 points and 14 assists in another victory televised nationally on NBA champion Dallas Mavericks.
All together, the frenzy around him increases. Commissioner David Stern said he had never seen so much interest created by a player in such a short period of time. Knicks games have been picked up by television stations in basketball-mad Asia, and Lin actually invoked for privacy for his family in Taiwan.
Lin will be a free agent after the season and said he hopes to return to New York, but otherwise did not think that far in the future.
“I’m not even worried about that right now,” he said. “It’s not like a career-ending thing or not is something that worries me. Once that is fixed, is fixed, is the simplest intervention you can have and so they are more concerned about the season.”
