Golf: Westwood wilts but maintains lead in Malaysia

Lee Westwood survived high temperatures and fierce competition from compatriot Andy Sullivan to cling onto the lead in the Malaysian Open on Saturday by a single-stroke. The Englishman, who boasts an impressive 12 career wins in Asia, started the day strongly but bogeyed his final hole in third-round play, allowing Sullivan to close in from six strokes behind overnight. Coming off a seventh place finish at last week's Masters in the United States, Westwood was clearly feeling the effects of the scorching temperatures at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club.

Filipino Antonio Lascuna and Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts were his nearest challengers at nine-under.
