Whenever the "best player never to win a major" conversation comes up, Lee Westwood's name is one of the first acknowledged.
He'd love to lose that moniker and had himself in a great position at Oakmont at age 43 to do what his good buddy Darren Clarke did at the same age in the Open Championship -- become a major winner.
Early in Saturday's third round, which didn't begin until after 3 p.m., Westwood displayed some great touch around the green, chipping in this shot for birdie on the second hole to temporarily pull within two shots of leader Dustin Johnson:
Westwood has finished inside the top-10 on 18 occasions at the majors. A win, really, is all he's missing.
Lee Westwood just keeps making highlights. Just as Dustin Johnson was busy turning in a double-bogey on the third hole, Westwood took the opportunity to hole out from the fifth fairway.
It was his second hole-out of the week, and vaulted him up into a tie for the lead.
What is this guy going to do next? Well for one, maybe win a U.S. Open?
