Westwood struggles to deal with Open nightmare

LEE WESTWOOD admits he is struggling to come to terms with his Open heartbreak.<br /><br />The English hope squandered a two-shot lead going into the turn before a three-putt bogey on the last hole saw him miss out on a chance to join Stewart Cink and Tom Watson in a play-off.<br /><br />It was the latest in a long line of disappointments for the frustrated 36-year-old, who is without a tournament victory since 200 and narrowly missed out on last year&rsquo;s US Open and a French Open play-off last month.<br /><br />&ldquo;I&rsquo;ve played okay all year,&rdquo; the Worksop-born Ryder Cup star said. &ldquo;At the French Open I lost in a play-off and then at Loch Lomond I played very well again and had a good chance there.<br /><br />&ldquo;Then obviously last week at The Open I feel like I ought to have won it. It keeps you awake at night for a few weeks, but you have to get over it and move onto the next one.<br /><br />&ldquo;The USPGA is in a few weeks time and is another opportunity to win a major. It can&rsquo;t come along soon enough. I feel like I&rsquo;m getting closer to winning a major. I&rsquo;m certainly contending more often and getting myself in good positions.&rdquo;
