Lee Westwood has long been an unashamed sadist of the fairways and yesterday the Englishman restated his love of the grind with a 70 on the first day of the season-ending Volvo Masters. His classy display of perseverance put him right in contention to win a second Order of Merit title.

It is fervently to be hoped not, because in any league table of spurious loyalty this had to be in the running for some kind of championship medal. The old guard had been asked to seize the day, but instead, they could only reach, when the day had been lost, even surrendered, into that ragbag of platitudes that is so often produced when a degree of honesty might just invite a little too much self-scrutiny.
