Westwood shoots 60 in Thailand

6:03 am on 16 December 2011

The world golf number three Lee Westwood will take a 5-stroke lead into the second round of the Thailand championship after firing a career best 12-under par 60.

The 38 year old Englishman played his first six holes in 7-under par, and his nearest pursuer is the American John Daly on 65.

The best of the rest are 8 strokes behind Westwood.

The Spanish star Sergio Garcia had a disappointing round of 76 during which he hurled a club into a lake in disgust after sending his ball into the water.
