Worksop ace Lee Westwood admitted he had been “kicked where it hurts” in the US PGA Championship as Adam Scott and Justin Rose remained in contention for their second major titles of the year.

Westwood had seemingly done the hard work by getting through 16 holes in level par for the day and four under overall, despite playing the vast majority of those in heavy rain at Oak Hill. But after the rain stopped, the 40-year-old dropped three shots in his last two holes to card a 73 that left him one under par, six behind Masters champion Adam Scott and five adrift of US Open winner Rose.

“I would like to have finished par, par but I am in red figures going into the weekend and still have a chance,” said Westwood, who is still seeking his first major title at the 63rd attempt.
