Lee Westwood walked to the par-3 seventh hole at Muirield with a two-shot lead. He nearly walked off the green tied with Henrik Stenson, but made a huge clutch "saving" bogey putt to say in front by a shot. Westwood's second bogey of the day was the result of a poor tee ball that landed in a particularly brutal spot in one of Muirfield's pot bunkers. The ball settled in fried-egg fashion, almost right up against the face of the trap. After exploring his options, which included coming out sideways into the fairway, Westwood decided to give it a run at the green. That didn't turn out so well:
As ESPN's Paul Azinger noted, Westwood was lucky the ball didn't drop back into his foot print and that it eventually snuck farther away from the wall. That allowed him to get up-and-out, and drain the huge bogey putt to hold onto the lead.
