Gullane, UK: Lee Westwood will take a two-stroke lead into Sunday's climax to the British Open after he and Tiger Woods duelled for the lead throughout Saturday's third round.

Playing together in the penultimate pairing, they both quickly sped past overnight leader Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain and then went head-to-head over the mighty Muirfield links on another sun-drenched afternoon.

At the end of it, 40-year-old Englishman Westwood was the winner thanks to a pivotal 17th hole when he birdied, while Woods bogeyed for a two-stroke swing.
