Lee Westwood Wins the Nedbank Challenge

lee westwood wins the nedbank challenge

We are so happy for him...

The former world number one took the outright lead from Louis Oosthuizen with a birdie at 17, completing the back nine in 31 to finish on 15 under behind Spain’s overnight leader Sergio Garcia.

 

“I’m a bit emotional to be honest.” said a tearful Westwood, 45. He told Sky Sports: “You’re never sure whether you’re going to be able to do it again.

Until now my emotions felt really under control all day, which is what I’ve been working hard on. I was just trying to hit fairways, stick to my gameplan and hit it in the right places.

"I’ve got a bit of process I’m going through with my golf swing, I’m starting to see better shots; the seven iron into 17 is probably one of the best shots I’ve hit and it all just worked.”

What a win, a teamwork celebration followed with caddie and girlfriend Helen Storey after holing a putt on the 18th.

The win was Westwood’s 24th on the European Tour and his third at the Nedbank.

Many congrats Westy, from all of us at Druh.
