Lee Westwood is struggling to close tournaments out

Odds: [30.0]  Last five US Opens: 10/3/16/23/3 The interminable wait for that long overdue first major title continues and one must think Westwood is running out of chances. The US Open has always looked perfect for Lee's accurate long game and his record is typically consistent, reaching the last five top-25s, including third place in 2008 and 2011. He's been in fair form, registering top-tens on five of his last six starts, but worryingly appears to have the lost the knack of closing out tournaments. An abject finish when holding the final round lead at the BMW PGA Championship is a particularly off-putting recent example.
