Lee Westwood's drive ends up in fan's sweater

A lot of the game of golf revolves around where your ball ends up. It could be in a bunker, a cactus, a divot or in the hole. 

For Lee Westwood in his semifinals match against Rory McIlroy, one of his drives was very, very unplayable. On the 13th hole, Westwood missed his tee shot left, only to find it in the sweater of a fan watching the action. 

The photo to your right, taken by the AP’s Doug Ferguson, shows just what kind of shot Westwood faced when he walked up to his ball. 

Westwood’s caddied joked to the lady, “Would you mind walking 250 yards further” before getting a drop and making a par which lost him to the hole to McIlroy, but one fan will always have the memory of how the heck a golf ball ended up in her sweater.

Losers like DK13 can't help themselves. They cry all the time about people talking about Woods without knowing that they are the ones doing it.  Wake up tool and smell the roses. If you can't say something smart of funny just don't post. See how easy that is?

It's a good thing this unfortunate incident didn't happen to one Tiger Woods. Eldrick would have insisted on retrieving his ball from the woman's sweater or shorts before cussing the lady out for being stupid enough not to get out of the way.
