Defending champion Lee Westwood took a one stroke lead over New Zealand's Michael Campbell into the last nine holes of the Quinn Insurance British Masters at The Belfry today.

The pair were level after finishing off their third rounds first thing in the morning - Campbell shot 65, Westwood 68 - but the British star then moved three clear.

However, at the 457 yard ninth his approach from the rough ended up right on the edge of the lake and while he bogeyed Campbell made a seven foot putt for birdie.

Spain's Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño was two behind in third place, with Swede Mikael Lundberg one further back.

Westwood, looking to win this title for the second year running to close in on Padraig Harrington at the top of The European Order of Merit, made the perfect start when he birdied the first.

He bogeyed the par four fourth but fought back strongly with birdies at he sixth and then the par three seventh, where he holed a difficult uphill putt.

Fernández-Castaño was two under for his round, with back to back birdies at the fourth and fifth propelling him to within striking distance of his playing partners.
