Top-ranked Lee Westwood finished Thursday's first round of the Ballantine's Championship with a double bogey, falling six shots behind leader Damien McGrane.

Starting at the back nine, the Englishman birdied the 18th and was on course for a 2-under 70 before his late slip at the ninth sent him tumbling down the leaderboard at the $2.8 million tournament at the Blackstone Golf Club at Icheon. He finished at even-par 72.

Westwood, who won the Asian Tour's Indonesian Masters last week to regain the No. 1 world ranking, appeared distracted by spectators taking photographs. Twice in the last three holes he backed off shots due to clicking noises, dropping three shots in the process.
