Scary start to Masters week for Westwood

9:08 am on 6 April 2011

The world golf number two Lee Westwood had a scary start to Masters week after surviving a harrowing trip just getting to Augusta.

The Englishman was involved in a midair drama when his private jet ride from Houston to Augusta was aborted.

The pilot had to make an emergency landing after smoke filled the cabin of the plane.

Last year's runner up said he had a very large vodka on the next flight.
