Wobbly Westwood

IN-FORM European No.1 Lee Westwood put some second-round indiscipline at the Shell Houston Open down to over-confidence but insisted it was good to get the wake-up call ahead of the opening major of the year.

With the Masters less than a week away, world No.4 Westwood is in flying form in Texas after shooting a second round in the 60s at Redstone Golf Club to leave him tied for fourth place and just two strokes off the lead held by American Bryce Molder heading into today's third round.

As seven birdies and three bogeys might suggest, his second-round, four-under-par 68 was full of highs and lows and Westwood admitted he had lost his focus at times on a breezy Texas day.

"The wind got up a little earlier, and at times out there I was a bit undisciplined," Westwood said.
