Curse of mum for Westwood
Wednesday 08 February 2012
Lee Westwood was forced to apologise after his mother caught him swearing on live television at last week's Qatar Masters. "My mum was the first person on the phone and she said you might want to apologise," Westwood said yesterday. "I didn't think that down at four-under-par I'd be on TV."
The curse came during the 38-year-old's closing 69 on Sunday that left him in a tie for 12th behind the winner, Paul Lawrie. Westwood apologised on Twitter, saying: "Sorry about swearing on the 16th tee . Came off like a rocket and thought it was going further! Wash my mouth out! Perils of live TV!"
