Westwood leads at Castle Stuart

LEE Westwood is the joint leader at the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart after his first round.

The Worksop man shot a seven under par 65 to share the clubhouse lead with Mark Tullo.

Six birdies and an eagle put him to the top of the leaderboard, with a dropped shot on the seventh the only blemish.

Fellow Worksop Golf Club export Mark Foster is three under par and tied for 22nd place.

Foster had three birdies and just one bogey, which came at the sixth.

The 35-year-old has to win the Scottish Open to qualify for next week’s Open Championship at Royal St George’s in Kent.
