Westwood, the world's ugliest perpetual bridesmaid, was suffering from a swollen calf muscle and was forced to pull out of the pro-am scheduled for the day before this weekend's French Open. Obviously, a blood clot could be potentially devastating; NASCAR driver Brian Vickers has been sidelined for the rest of the year by them. But it appears that Westwood was simply suffering from the heat now blanketing France, and he could well be able to play in the tournament after all.
I was practising at Woburn on Monday and got bitten by a horsefly or something. It was swollen yesterday and when I put my hand in my pocket I felt a big lump on my groin and knew it wasn't right. I went to the doctors, was given antibiotics and decided I was well enough to fly this morning, but that's probably not done it any good.
Ow. Ow. Ow. You never want "bite" and "lump" and "groin" that close to each other in a paragraph. But hey, it'll give Poulter more time to shop for some fancy new pants.
