Open Championship

Westwood expected little, showed little at Lytham

Now he tells us.

Lee Westwood wasn't expecting much this week.

"I made the cut but I didn't have much of a game coming in so I didn't expect too much," said Westwood, who made the cut at 3 over and then played the weekend in an equal 3 over.

"You'd like to be coming into it ripping it and every part of your game in good shape but sometimes it's not so sometimes you just have to make it what you've got.

The world No. 3 said earlier in the week he had been facing some problems with his swing entering this Open Championship, but admitted Sunday he was unable to right the ship.

"I hit the ball okay today but what I was working on I didn't quite get it right," he said, according to Sky Sports.

The Englishman is now 0-for-58 in majors and, at the moment, nonplussed about it.

"You just learn to live with it and just keep working on it," he said. "It's one of those things. You play golf long enough you have no problem with it."
