It could be Westwood's best chance ever to win and I think it comes down to Tiger or him.
It's so interesting watching these big hitters coming up with double and triple bogies. Links golf is a thinking mans' game. You could make the perfect shot to the pin and watch the ball roll off the green to no mans land. This is why someone like Tom Watson can still compete on Links courses. I'm rooting hard for Tiger, if he can avoid the big mistake and get off to a fast start in round three he could raise the Jug. He's playing defensive and I guess that's the only way to go given the conditions.
