Lee Westwood Just Misses a 59 with a 5-shot lead in Thailand December 15 2011

Lee Westwood shot a 12 under round of 60 to lead the Thailand Golf Championship tournament, and also had a chance to make it a 59. This achievement follows hot foot on his 62 at the Ned Bank challenge a couple of weeks ago, but this round was even better. "I've never shot a 60 before,  A couple of 61s in Germany. Billy Foster said my 62 two weeks ago at they Nedbank  was as good a round as he's ever seen but he said today was better." "It was in my mind to get to 13 under but it wasn't to be, I gave myself a few chances. Left one short on the hole on 11 and one short on 14. Had a good chance on 16 as well. "I don't think you can be disappointed with a 60. I have to be a fairly harsh critic of myself to walk away disappointed." John Daly who was playing in the group following Lee said. "That was just one hell of a round, I would have never ever dreamed that I would shoot a 7 under let alone a 12 under. My hat that I'm not wearing is off to him because that was just an awesome round of golf he played." England's Lee Westwood. Photo / AP
