AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - When Lee Westwood headed to the scoring hut
to sign off on another close call in a major championship, he got a
bit of advice from someone who's been in that position.
Phil Mickelson was once known as the best player without a major
title on his resume. Now, he's got four of 'em - and he's sure
Westwood will win one, too.
Westwood was runner-up to Mickelson at the Masters on Sunday,
after settling for third-place finishes at the previous two majors.
The Englishman went into the final round with a one-stroke lead,
but a mediocre front side held him to a 1-under 71 as Mickelson
pulled away to a three-stroke win.
Mickelson says he hopes Westwood is playing some of the best
golf in the world and deserves to win his first major championship.
