Westwood lead at Malaysian Open down to 1 stroke


KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Lee Westwood saw his four-shot lead trimmed to just one on Saturday after a bogey at the final hole on day three of the Malaysian Open.

Westwood had a third-round 71 for a three-round total of 14-under 202 but is only one shot ahead of English compatriot Andy Sullivan, who had a 66 as he chases his first tour title.

They appear set to fight out the title between them on Sunday, as there is a three-stroke gap between Sullivan and third-placed Frenchman Julien Quesne, who had a 69.

Westwood two-putted the final green at Kuala Lumpur Country Club for bogey after having to play his approach shot from the slope of a fairway bunker.
