Triple-bogey ruins Westwood's hopes
Third-ranked Lee Westwood's hopes of a charge up the leaderboard at the BMW PGA Championship foundered with a back-nine triple bogey on Saturday, leaving him 11 strokes off the lead after his third round.
Westwood, who only narrowly made the cut at Wentworth, surrendered four shots in a fairway bunker in compiling a seven on No. 13 as the Englishman shot a 2-under 70 to lie on 1 under overall.
With the windy conditions playing havoc, Ian Poulter (69) was the only player among the early starters to shoot under 70. He moved to 3 under but will need the leaders to struggle later Saturday to stand a chance of victory.
James Morrison began the third round with a four-shot lead on 12 under, with Luke Donald and David Drysdale the nearest challengers.
