Unlike many of Tiger Woods's jilted, Steve Williams could not be silenced. Last night the New Zealander reacted with thinly-veiled fury when suddenly sacked as caddie after 13 years, 72 victories, 13 major triumphs and one very public scandal. "So much for loyalty," was the gist of the New Zealander's reaction.

Only someone with the hardest of hearts would be unable to summon up some sympathy for golfer Rory McIlroy after his disastrous final round at the US Masters tournament. Having gone into the last day with a four-stroke lead, he managed to blow it in spectacular fashion, between the 10th and the 12th, ending up in a tie for 15th place.

Expect the unexpected. That was Lee Westwood's message for the climax of the 75th Masters. And he should know. With 27 holes to play last year, he was cruising around here, taking a five-shot lead into Amen Corner. Then crash, bang, wallop. Phil Mickelson exploded into action with an eagle at the 13th, eagle at the 14th and birdie at the 15th. Westwood's lead was gone in a heartbeat. But the lesson he learned is that there is no lead that can't be pegged back at The Masters – especially on Sunday, when pulses are racing, the roars are echoing through the pines, and the brains of rookies and veterans alike can be turned to scrambled eggs.
