Lee Westwood, the world's No. 3 ranked golfer, is apparently struggling with a leg injury that very well might take him out of the field at this month's British Open at St. Andrews. Westwood, who has yet to win a major championship, was expected to be a serious contender at this year's Open Championship, but according to a Reuters report, his doctor told him he needs a rest. As a result, Westwood has pulled out of JP McManus pro-am in Ireland.
"He's got a slight tear in the muscle close to his calf in his right leg and he's been told by his doctor to have complete rest this week," said Martin Hardy, a spokesman for Westwood's management team. "He was going to go to St Andrews for a practice round on Thursday but he has now cancelled that and will be going there next Monday. Lee is hopeful (of playing) but they just have to monitor the injury and see how it progresses over the next week."Tiger "terse" with media in Ireland SkySPORTS
