DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - FEBRUARY 04: Lee Westwood of England on the 11th green during the first round the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on the Majlis Course at the Emirates Golf Club on February 4, 2010 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. (Photo by Ross Kinnaird/Getty Images)

Lee Westwood found himself in pretty good position on Saturday at The Players Championship, sitting at 9-under, just two strokes back of leader Sergio Garcia, to start the 3rd round. Then that happened. Westwood had a terrible lie on the first hole, with the ball resting between the edge of the rough and a patch of pine needles, with a tree inhibiting his backswing. But the man is a professional golfer, who has undoubtedly faced his fair share of difficult shots in his career, so it was quite surprising to see Westwood completely whiff on the shot, like some weekend duffer. The Englishman would go on to double-bogey the hole, then repeat that score on the 4th hole to fall out of contention. Tiger Woods would win the tournament at 13-under after Sergio Garcia imploded, with the Spaniard going 6-over on the final two holes in a choke job of Jean van de Velde proportions.
