Westwood vs. Donald Bill Dwyre Los Angeles Times This 140th edition of The Open Championship, also known on the United States side of the pond as the British Open, will come down to a country-wrenching battle for the title between Lee Westwood and Luke Donald. The English will be torn. Their tabloids will wring their hands in indecision that will manifest itself in big, black wobbly headlines. Whom to root for? Which one is truly our lad? They are both Englishmen, of course, but which is more English than the other?

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — After two rounds of the British Open, it is pretty much as we all thought. Louis Oosthuizen is leading by five shots. Make that Lodewicus Theodorus Oosthuizen. "It's my grandfather's name," the 27-year-old South African said. "They call me Louis now." Well, not everybody. The woman who introduced Oosthuizen for his news conference called him Peter Oosthuizen. Peter Oosterhuis is the former English golf star and occasional television commentator who is 62 now. Still, he remains more famous than Louis Oosthuizen, who, until Friday, wasn't even as famous as the guy announcing the players on the first tee. But then came a round of golf not often seen in daylong conditions more conducive to sitting by a fire and reading a book than playing golf.

Tiger Woods is a lame-duck No. 1; Lee Westwood waits in the wings. Push number-crunching aside, though, and no golfer is hotter than Martin Kaymer. It turns out the PGA Championship was only a springboard for the 25-year-old German, who has yet to come away without hardware since that victorious playoff at Whistling Straits. After a three-week hiatus, he won the KLM Open in the Netherlands. Then he went 3-0-1 in helping Europe win back the Ryder Cup. Finally, a birdie-birdie finish captured last week's Dunhill Links at St.Andrews.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Several pros mocked Whistling Straits' 18th hole after the 2004 PGA Championship, saying it seemed contrived and had too small a green. Fuzzy Zoeller called the 500-yard par-4 "a joke" and added, "There's nothing good about it. " Now it's all good. Architect Pete Dye expanded the fairway, allowing players to try to bomb it over the giant bunker complex on the left. Steve Stricker used the new strip of fairway as a lay-up area in the first round — and got up-and-down for par after a gorgeous wedge shot from 142 yards.

— The British have a marvelous way with words. Journalist Oliver Brown has written that England's Lee Westwood is "golf's perpetual nearly man. " Truth is so much better when it is also lyrical. As today's Ryder Cup plays on toward Sunday's expected dramatic conclusion, one thing can be established without any final results. This is Westwood's time. He is 37, has been a fixture on both the European and U.S. tours for more than a decade, has won millions, has been the top dog on the European Tour twice — winner of the Order of Merit — and is the veteran on this European Ryder Cup team with six previous appearances.

Louis Oosthuizen Barry Stavro Los Angeles Times My Ouija board says the PGA champ will emerge from the group of 16 players who have won the last 16 majors and, no, Tiger Woods isn't in that mix. Sunday's winner will be … South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Granted, he's one of the more obscure names among the recent 16 major winners. But he's having a fine year. He came within a ball turn of sinking the winning putt at Augusta before Bubba Watson came out of the trees in a playoff to beat him for a green jacket, and Oosthuizen has continued to play well; he was in the mix last week at Firestone.
