Westwood on course for title


Lee Westwood led by five shots, on 11 under par, halfway through the Indonesian Masters at the Royal Jakarta club yesterday. The world No 3 followed eight straight pars with a birdie on the final hole.

England's Gary Boyd shared the halfway lead at the China Open with France's Jean-Baptiste Gonnet, on 11 under. The 13-year-old Guan Tian-Lang missed the cut, a day after becoming the youngest male to play in a European Tour event.
