Westwood keeps control

Have your say

WORKSOP’S Lee Westwood will take a three-shot lead into the final round of the Nordea Masters after keeping the chasing pack at bay in Stockholm.

A round of 68 was good enough for Westwood to maintain the advantage he had enjoyed at the halfway stage at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club, although England’s Ross Fisher rather than Swede Peter Hanson is now his nearest challenger.

Westwood finished the day on 16 under par, with Fisher 13 under after a superb 65 and Ryder Cup team-mate Hanson a further shot back after a battling 69.

“I played well, hit a lot of good shots and it was some solid stuff,” Westwood said.
