And his sessions with Baker-Finch, an Australian and close neighbor in Palm Beach Gardens who won the Open at Birkdale, have led to a marked change to his mentality on the greens.

Westwood couldn't be happier with his overall game right now.

"I'm hitting the ball well. And controlling the flight most of the time pretty well, and getting up and down when I needed to," he said. "I've always enjoyed playing Muirfield and felt like it suited my game."

Westwood is looking to become the first Englishman to win his national Open since Nick Faldo in 1992.

If he does so on Sunday, he will have an Aussie to thank.
