Lee Westwood: 'The draw didn't favour me'

Lee Westwood says that being drawn to take to the course last had an impact on his game at The Masters.

Lee Westwood has insisted that being drawn to take to the course last had an impact on his performance in the first round of The Masters in Augusta.

The Briton, who ended the day with a one-over-par score of 73, fears that his failure to perform on some of the par-five holes could prove costly.

"I didn't really make enough of par fives, that's where you're scoring on this golf course," BBC Sport quotes Westwood as saying.

"It was a bad draw being out last. You sort of sigh when you see the draw. That's as hard as it will play all day. I will be out a bit earlier tomorrow and hopefully it's more scoreable."

American Bill Haas ended day one as the clubhouse leader with a four-under-par 68.
