AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — England’s Lee Westwood has pulled out to a three-stroke lead as he makes the turn in the third round of the Masters.
Westwood birdied two of the first four holes Saturday, made a great par save after driving behind the trees at No. 7. He added another birdie after reaching the green of the par-5 eighth in two shots. He shot a 3-under 33 on the front side and pushed his total score to 11 under – the lowest yet in this tournament.
Ian Poulter, who teed off tied for the lead with Westwood, hit some shaky shots and fell three shots behind his playing partner with a 36 on the front side. Phil Mickelson is another stroke back, while Tiger Woods has dropped to five shots behind.
