DUBAI (AFP) European No.1 Lee Westwood broke out of a four-way tie for the lead in the Dubai Desert Classic Sunday early into the final round but was hauled back in by a double-bogey at the fifth. The 36-year-old Englishman was level at 11-under with Asian No.1 Thongchai Jaidee, and Spanish pair Alvaro Quiros and Miguel Angel Jimenez going into the final day. He parred the two opening holes before back-to-back brides at the third and fourth gave him the lead at 13 under. He seemed to have the momentum but a poor drive at the fifth resulted in a double-bogey six. The big-hitting Quiros, who is quickly establishing himself as a top ten player of the future, birdied the third but immediately dropped a stroke at the next hole to stay at 11 under, level with compatriot Jimenez who parred his first five holes. Thongchai dropped back to 10 under with a bogey at the fourth. Westwood had predicted a birdie-fest on Sunday to determine who will win the Gulf regions premier tournament. The Englishman, who has risen to No.4 in the world and is the highest-ranking player here, said anyone within seven or eight shots of the lead could win the 2.5million dollar European Tour event. That would leave 28 players in the hunt, although the smart money was on one of the leading quartet along with defending champion Rory McIlroy who was next best at two shots off the pace. The 20-year-old Ulsterman complained of feeling flat and frustrated in Saturdays third round but he believes that could all change with a more energetic start to Sundays closing round. I feel as if I can get a couple of early birdies, maybe a couple of under through five, Ill be in with a shout and you know my figures in the last round here have been pretty good, he said. There were no early signs of any fireworks from him though as he parred his five opening holes to stay at nine-under par, four shots off the pace. Conditions at the Emirates Golf Club were near perfect early Sunday, but the wind was forecast to increase during the late afternoon when the leaders would be coming home.
