Lee Westwood admitted that the PGA Tour schedule has taken its toll causing him to miss the cut at the Honda Classic. After finishing as a runner up in the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Players, Westwood has played four tournaments in as many weeks. He admitted that age finally caught up with him after the final round but went on to play 54 holes at the Augusta National.
“I think we both know that this was probably a tournament too far for me, after the run I’ve had the last two weeks,” Westwood said. “But I felt like I should play here this week.”
“In an ideal world, this would have been a week off after finishing second the last two weeks. What can you do? Just felt like one I had to play. Kind of glazed over out there I was so tired.” he added.
After battling to a level par-70 on the first day, Westwood suffered a horrendous day racking up three double bogeys as well as three bogeys and could only muster up one birdie for an 8-over 78. The WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play will be the next destination for Westwood before taking a week off.
