Can Westwood go bogey-free?

UPDATE (2:42 p.m.): Lee Westwood's flawless streak is now over. He hit his drive at the first hole to the left and it settled several feet from a tree. He had a very steep takeaway and hit the tree on his backswing, missing the ball completely. He chipped his third out into the fairway, hit his fourth on the green and two-putted from 18 feet for double bogey. Westwood also appeared to tweak his left hand on his second shot.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Not only is Lee Westwood in contention to win THE PLAYERS Championship for the first time, he has yet to make a bogey on the challenging Stadium Course at  TPC Sawgrass in the first two rounds.

No one has ever gone bogey-free during the PGA TOUR's signature event. The closest anyone has come was Greg Norman during his PLAYERS victory in 1994 -- he didn't make his first bogey until the 13th hole in the final round.

Gil Morgan made three bogeys in 1993 when he tied for third while Scott Hoch also had just three in 1996 when he tied for 19th.

Westwood will start the final round tied for third at 9 under, two strokes off the pace being set by Sergio Garcia. The Englishman tees off at 2:30 ET with Kevin Chappell.
