Westwood one shot behind at Maybank

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) Lee Westwood sank 11 birdies in scoring a low-round-of-the-day 62 to lie one shot behind the leaders halfway through the Maybank Championship on Friday.

Westwood won the Malaysian Open here at Saujana Golf and Country Club 21 years ago, and was also the club's touring pro.

''It's nice to be in contention and to know this golf course well,'' he said.

''I've played this course more than most and I know where to hit it. Hopefully we can build on that more.''

Phachara Khongwatmai of Thailand and Nino Bertasio of Italy shared the lead after matching 65s in the second round.

Phachara made seven birdies, including five straight in a bogey-free round, and Bertasio holed eight birdies to be 11 under overall at the European Tour event.

''It was very easy,'' Bertasio said.

With Westwood at 10 under were fellow Englishman Chris Paisley (69), Marc Warren of Scotland (66), and Yuta Ikeda of Japan (64).

David Lipsky, the runner-up last year, was among a slew of golfers trailing by two, and Europe's EurAsia Cup-winning captain Thomas Bjorn stayed in contention three strokes adrift.

Defending champion Fabrizio Zanotti was at 7 under, and Henrik Stenson was another two shots behind.

Li Haotong of China, who won in Dubai last weekend, finished the round at 1 over and missed the cut by five shots.
