6:05 pm Putting plagues Westwood again

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Lee Westwood has certainly had his share of chances in major championships. Sunday was another one of them that went by the wayside for the Brit.
Despite just one bogey in the final round, Westwood’s 68 wasn’t enough to capture his first career major as he was plagued by putting again. Westwood took 62 putts over the weekend, including 29 on Sunday. That included missing twice from inside 6 feet in his first five holes.
“I have enjoyed playing great for a long time now, but unfortunately when I turn up at majors, when I don’t win one, it’s a disappointing week for everybody it seems; obviously [for] me,” said Westwood, who finished his week at 3 under.
If there was a bight spot for Westwood it’s that he made just two bogeys over the last two rounds.
“I played lovely again,” Westwood said. “Just one of those things.”
But for now, it will be wait ‘till next year for Westwood.
