Three now tied for the lead

GULLANE, Scotland -- A pair of bogeys by Lee Westwood has created a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard with 10 holes remaining in The Open Championship.

Westwood, who led  by two at the start of the day, is now 1 under and knotted with Henrik Stenson and Adam Scott. Stenson is through 11 and Scott has completed 10 holes.

Westwood's troubles started with bunkered tee shots at Nos. 7 and 8. He left it in the bunker from a plugged lie on the par-3 seventh on the way to the first bogey and came up shot of the green from the sand at No. 8, eventually making a 5-footer for the 5.

Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan are one stroke back at even par. They have completed 11, nine and 13 holes, respectively.

Ian Poulter has completed a round of 67 that included a stretch of four holes starting at No. 9 that he played in 5 under. He is the leader in the clubhouse at 1 over.
