The Open Championship: Lee Westwood makes his move

Tournament favourite Tiger Woods, handily placed after an opening 69, made a solid start with three pars, followed by a birdie at the third, where he sunk a 12-footer. He then promptly three-putted the par-three fourth to drop back to two over before narrowly missing a monster putt for eagle at the next.
