Birthday boy Westwood wins in Indonesia

LEE Westwood has celebrate his 38th birthday with a win in the Indonesian Masters.

The Worksop man will now go back to the top of the world rankings, should Luke Donald fail to win the Heritage Tournament, which he is leading going into the final round.

Westwood won in Jakarta by three shots, finishing 19 under par.

He had taken a five-stroke lead into the fourth and final round, but that lead was cut to one shot before three birdies on the back nine left him three clear of Thai golfer Tongchai Jaidee.

The weather forced the 38-year-old to delay his celebrations with lightening threats bringing a stoppage in play after he hit his tee shot on 18.

But the break failed to affect him and he ended the tournament with a par to take the title.

Speaking after a dramatic final round he said: “It was quite a day really. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy with a five-shot lead.”

“I’m experienced enough to know that patience is the key. I hit the ball great but didn’t hit the putts when it mattered.”
