Bangkok: World number three Lee Westwood fired a stunning 12-under 60 to take a commanding five-shot lead on the opening day of the inaugural $1 million Thailand Golf Championship on Thursday.
The 38-year-old Englishman sank an eagle and 10 birdies in his round and was six-under after the opening five holes. He made the turn in just 29 shots on his way to equalling the lowest score ever on the Asian Tour.
"It's one of the best rounds I've ever played. I've never shot a 60 before," Westwood said at Amata Spring Country Club near Bangkok.
