Westwood rues missed Masters chance

Lee Westwood admits he is still regretting his missed Masters opportunity after arriving in Asia for the Macau Open.

Westwood finished sixth at Augusta - his highest placing in a Major - but said he was still not content with his final performance.

"I was a little bit disappointed with my finish in the US Masters," Westwood admitted.

"You don't realise how hard Amen corner is until you are in that position.

"I always wondered why they said the Masters started on the back nine, now I know why."

Westwood bogeyed 10, double bogeyed 11 and bogeyed 12 at Augusta in the final round after having jointly held the lead through the turn.

He added: "They really are a tough stretch of holes especially when something is on it.

"You start to feel a bit sick. Next time I am in that position it will be easier."
