This is pretty amazing -- Lee Westwood whiffed on his second shot at the par-4, 423-yard No. 1 hole at TPC Sawgrass on Saturday. Granted, he was jammed up against a tree and couldn't extend his hands at all ... but still.

Westwood is playing with Kevin Chappell and went on to double bogey the hole, his first hole over par of the entire tournament. He told NBC during his round that his hand is bothering him a bit. It shouldn't be more than an annoyance for the remainder of his round, though, as he chases Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods.
