'Hurting' Westwood vows to take inspiration from Mickelson ahead of US PGA

London, July 23 : English golf ace Lee Westwood has vowed to take inspiration from Open Championship winner Phil Mickelson even though he admitted to being 'hurt' at losing yet another chance to win a Major.

According to the Mirror, the Ryder Cup star, who is bidding to win the US PGA in Rochester, New York next month, took a two-shot lead into the last round at Muirfield before carding a closing 75, nine strokes worse than champion Mickelson and has now finished in the top five in Majors ten times without landing a title.

Stating that he is hurt by his defeat, Westwood however, said that he would be taking inspiration from Mickelson, whom he called a worthy winner for playing the last six holes in four under, adding that he hoped that people will be able to say the same thing about him before long.

According to Westwood, he will not give in to self-pity and backed himself to be strong enough to want to keep putting himself in this position or risk never getting the chance to finish one off.

Westwood further said that he got a few tough breaks with plugged lies that killed his momentum, although he admitted that a couple of them were the result of bad shots.
