Like always this time too, Lee Westwood finished the Open de France championship in style.
In the final round of the event, he made a stunning hole-out eagle at Le Golf National.
Westwood carded a one-under 70 to finish inside the top-10, having one shot standing out at the display from his up-and-down.
In-order to surge up the leader board, the Englishman posted gains back-to-back from the 10th and birdied second. He did this after finding the rough on the left of the fairway from the tee. The approach of Westwood was correct and it found the greens and took short hops for a couple of times, as it raced for an eagle-two.
The shots made by Westwood, closed the gap on the board between the expecting winner Tommy Fleetwood, but then Westwood had some bad shots, the closing stretch with three bogeys tumbled the position of Westwood he finished seven strokes back.
When Westwood was asked about his performance, he said, ”I got the nice start, the ball landed at the place, where I wanted it to land. The first two shots went extremely well. But, then two bogeys spoiled everything”.
Obviously it was not an intentional hit, but it went like that, nevertheless, this is what the golf is. I am happy that I finished in top ten”.
On the other hand, Fleetwood said, “The shots of Westwood, were really spectacular and it was a great hit. In sports, there is nothing predicted, one cannot predict what will happen when. Like the good shot of Westwood were beyond imagination, the bad shots were too unexpected. It can happen to anyone and this is not just with the golf, this of type of thing happens in any sport. This is the spirit of sport and the sportsman”.
