Westwood stunned by Donald’s Wentworth wizardry

WORLD No1 Lee Westwood joked his compatriot Luke Donald should be drug tested after posting a remarkable 64 in tough conditions on the first day of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

Donald finished on seven under, two shots clear of Italian teenager Matteo Manassero and Sweden’s Johan Edfors.

Westwood finished on level par after struggling with his putter and on discovering Donald’s progress, he quipped: “They should drug test Luke after a 64 – I can’t quite figure that one out.”

Colin Montgomerie has revealed he was sacked by his caddie at the start of this week because his bagman wanted to work with “somebody better”. The former European Ryder Cup captain finished on two under and said: “I had a phone call from my caddie saying he had decided to go with somebody better. The search is on. All applicants are welcome.”
