Minnesota native Tom Lehman struggled for the second straight day at the British Open, shooting a 4-over par 75 on Saturday.

Lehman, 54, won the Open Championship in 1996.

He started this year's Open Championship strong with an impressive 3-under 68 on Thursday. He followed that with a self-described "really ugly" 77 on Friday.

Lehman enters Sunday's final round tied for 34th, 10 shots behind leader Lee Westwood.

Tiger Woods is tied for second-place, two shots shy of Westwood.
