Jay Flemma interview with Lee Westwood at the Pinehurst No.2 2005 U.S. Open

Lee Westwood agreed with Phil Mickelson's Friday observations after his +3 73 left him six back of leader retief Goosen.

"You have to be very defensive out there, you can't charge your putts. It's very difficult. If you miss the green, sometimes you have to treat the hole as a dogleg and play four or five feet away from the hole and hope to make the putt."

JF: How many holes can you attack out there and do you agree the only birdie holes are 1-4.

LW: Well I think four and ten are the only birdie holes. Basically you have to hope to hole a few 25 footers to get a birdie. If you miss the green it's very difficult to get up and down.

Nevertheless, Westwood was enamored with the course and the setup. "It's the fairest most draining golf course."
