Casey and Westwood Do It For England

Paul Casey and Lee Westwood are both tied at 3rd place in the 2010 Open Championship at St Andrews. The two English golfers who have been playing among the worlds best golfers for many years now are in a great position to take the biggest golf tournament in the world.

After England's poor World Cup in South Africa and a budget that will hurt many English workers a English victory would prove a welcome bit of good news. The two players are sat at -6 with the leader Louis Oosthuizen finishing his two rounds at -12. The world will be watching the South African golfer going into moving day to see if he can continue his good form. After catching two early starts and some of the best weather Oosthuizen has found himself in a position he has not experienced before.

Westwood and Casey both have the games to win a major but do they have the mental strength and scoring ability to go ahead and take there opportunity. Only time will tell and just behind both golfers is the world number one Tiger Woods, the most dangerous golfer to be in contention. Is Tiger hungry or injured mentally? Only Tiger knows the answer to that question.
