British Open: Scramble down the stretch as Westwood falls back

PAUL NEWBERRY,AP National Writer

GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson have moved up to share the lead with Lee Westwood as the final group makes the turn at the British Open.

Westwood began Sunday’s round with a two-shot edge, but fell back with two straight bogeys. Westwood drove into a bunker at the par-3 seventh and needed two whacks to get out. An errant drive at No. 8 led to another bogey, dropping him to 1 under.

Stenson joined Westwood with a 2-under 34 on the front side. So did Scott, who bounced back from two bogeys on the first four holes with three straight birdies.

The biggest charge was made by Ian Poulter, who matched the best round of the day with a 4-under 67. He’s in the clubhouse at 1-over 285.
