World no. 3 Lee Westwood has successfully defended his Indonesian Masters title at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club.
Westwood registered his 38th victory after finishing a total of 16-under-par 272 leading by two shots by his closest rival Thailand’s Thaworn Wiratchant, who places second.
Gaganjeet Bhullar and Shiv Kapur from India tied in third place.
The Englishman, who collected a winner’s cheque of US$ 118,875, said he hoped the win would kick-start this year’s attempt at winning an elusive Major championship.
Westwood, who finished tied third at the Masters two weeks ago, held an eight-shot lead going into the final round but tiredness began to kick in on his homeward nine as he shot three bogeys.
