Westwood takes tumble

Only six players have won the week before a major and then gone on to win one of golf’s four crown jewels. 

There likely won’t be a seventh this week, either, as Lee Westwood, who won the St. Jude Classic presented by Smith and Nephew in a playoff on Sunday, continues to tumble down the leaderboard.

The world No. 2 appeared to have gotten himself back in the hunt with a 71 on Friday that left him 3 over for the tournament. But he has made three bogeys and a double today and finds himself 8 over through 53 holes.

Shaun Micheel, who was tied for the first-round lead with Brendon De Jonge and Paul Casey, is also 8 over.  Casey is tied for 10th at 4 over through 50 holes while de Jonge is at 5 over and tied for 16th through 14 holes on Saturday.

World No. 4 Steve Stricker shot 77 on Saturday and is 13 over while defending champ Lucas Glover, who also shot 77, is 10 over.
