Brilliant Westwood charges clear in Sweden

World number three Lee Westwood "put on a bit of a show" by firing eight birdies in a faultless eight-under-par 64 to take the lead in the Scandinavian Masters second round in Stockholm on Thursday.


The 31-year-old rattled in eight birdies before a disappointing bogey on the final hole, but still finished two shots clear of England's Richard Bland and Matthew Baldwin, Spain's Ignacio Garrido and Swede Peter Hanson.

World number three Lee Westwood is a further shot back, but was left frustrated on the greens - as ever - after three-putting twice.

Carlsson is looking to become the third Swede in as many years to win the tournament following Richard S Johnson and Alex Noren’s victories in 2010 and 2011.
