The Open Championship Recap Part Four

There’s Phil Mickelson at the U.S. Open. Then there’s Lee Westwood at every major. He’s by far the best player to have never won a major. He now has a record eight top-three finishes without winning one. And all eight have come since 2008. That’s eight in not even six full years, or more than one in every three. He’s had the 54-hole lead twice; in 2010 at the Masters when...

He's not the same Tiger. That much was clear after a dramatic Saturday at Muirfield when Tiger Woods took the lead at the 142nd Open championship, but instead of doing what he used to and stepping on throats, he stepped on his own shoelaces.
