Westwood shoots career best of 60 in Thailand

Lee Westwood shot a 12-under-par 60 – the best round of his career to date – to establish a five-shot lead on day one of the Thailand Golf Championship.

Westwood carded 10 birdies and an eagle at the Amata Spring Country Club.

“I made a dream start and you start thinking about 59, I guess,” said Westwood, the world number three.

Westwood set the tone for his round with birdies at one, three, four and five and an eagle at the par-five second.

“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!”

Westwood really is in the form of his life, if only his putter could remain hot he could be the best player in the world without a doubt.
