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.

Korean K.J. Choi beats bad weather to take Heritage lead

(Reuters) - South Korean K.J. Choi wielded a hot putter to vault into the clubhouse lead during the second round at the $5.8 million RBC Heritage in South Carolina on Friday. Choi made use of his advantageous early tee time, holing several long shots on his way to a four-under-par 67 at Harbour Town on Hilton Head Island.

Westwood surges clear in Malaysia as Larrazabal dives for cover

(Reuters) - Lee Westwood surged four shots clear at the halfway stage of the European Tour's Malaysian Open on Friday after an eventful second round where Spain's Pablo Larrazabal was forced to dive into a lake to avoid a swarm of hornets. The former world number one Englishman took his two-day total to 13-under after a six-under-par 66 and put himself in prime position to end an almost two-year trophy drought. Filipino Antonio Lascuna and Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts were his nearest challengers at nine-under.

Fellow Americans Scott Langley and William McGirt, each seeking a first tour triumph, were level with Kuchar after 18 holes at Harbour Town, two shots ahead of Harris English. Jordan Spieth, the 20-year-old talent who shared second-place honors at Augusta National last week, was in a pack of 15 players on 69.

Lee Westwood fired eight birdies to surge to the first-round lead of the Malaysian Open on Thursday with a seven-under par 65, staying sharp after a solid performance at last week's Masters. Big-hitting Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium was just a stroke back on 66 after matching the Englishman's birdie count but falling short due to a pair of bogeys on day one at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Westwood, who managed a seventh-place finish at the Masters on Sunday, stumbled out of the blocks in Malaysia with a bogey on his first hole of the day.
