Career best 60 for Westwood in Thailand
The Worksop man’s 12 under par round of 60 gave him a five shot lead over the rest of the field at Amata Spring Country Club.
The world number three thought he could have shot even lower, despite carding 10 birdies and an eagle.
He said: “I made a dream start and you start thinking about 59, I guess.”
“I guess 59 is one of those numbers where if it is meant to be, it is meant to be. I messed it up with a few pars!”
“It’s not really a 60 course, it was a bit breezy out there.”
