Westwood May Miss British Open
By Kickntrue on 7/6/10
I think Lee Westwood is on the cusp of winning a major. While next week at the British Open seemed ideal- now it's looking less likely.
World number three Lee Westwood is struggling to be fit for next week’s 150th anniversary British Open at St Andrews.Bollocks! (Did I use that correctly?!) Every major should have all of the top players. I think we'd agree missing numbers 1 or 2 would be a bigger blow, but Westwood at 3 may have the best actual chance at winning at St. Andrews. He's been playing great golf recently and has contended in multiple recent majors. I would certainly bet him before Woods, I know that.
Hopefully he'll get the rest he needs and make it happen. Playing hurt may greatly reduce his chances of competing at a high level, but history has shown us what a Major induced endorphin boost can do for your golf game!

I think it would suck if he wasn't able to play, but I think it would suck more if he tried to play and withdrew after the first day because he couldn't play and someone else (next alternate) did not get the opportunity to play.
Hopefully, he'll be able to go, but if he can't, I hope he withdraws early enough to give someone else a shot.
Hopefully he will be able to make it. He should possibly rest and practice maybe one or two days before the tournament. He is playing some great golf as of recent and i wish him the best for a quick recovery to play in the British Open.
