SANDWICH, ENGLAND (AP) - Lee Westwood was full of bluster and confidence on the eve of the British Open. He said he had the patience to conquer Royal St. George’s and win that elusive first major.

By Friday, he was gone.

A second-round 73 sent a frustrated and irritable Westwood tumbling out of the tournament at 4 over, a stroke below the cut.

The second-ranked Englishman wasn’t the only big name out before the weekend. Top-ranked Luke Donald hit the exit, as did former winners Padraig Harrington, Ernie Els, Ben Curtis and Mark Calcavecchia. Also out were No. 7-ranked Matt Kuchar and 2010 U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell.
