    Add Comment

    Lee Westwood (Synr-G and SciFlex) celebrated his birthday by reclaiming the top spot on the Official World Golf Rankings with a win at the Indonesian Masters (Asian Tour).  Lee Westwood played stellar golf all week at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club and began his final round with a 5 shot lead.  Westwood was steady on the outward nine, shooting even par.  On the 11th, Westwood faced a tricky 15 footer for birdie and nailed it.  Now with some momentum, Lee birdied two more holes to finish the tourney at 19-under par 3 shots clear of second place.  When asked about becoming world number one again, Westwood downplayed the feat, "It was about coming here this week and trying to win the Indonesian Masters and I've done that." 

    On the European Tour,  big hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts (FJ ICON) won the Volvo China Open at a staggering mark of 24-under par.  This is Nicolas' first European Tour victory coming 10 years after first earning his European Tour card at the age of 18.   Colsaerts later said of his victory, "I’m enjoying every second of it...I’m dizzy - my head is going all over the place. I’ve been waiting for this for a very long time and I think I did it in the best of manners so I’m really delighted."

    The 29 year old from Brussels, whose 316 yard average off the tee is longer than that of America's number one bomber Bubba Watson, Moves to €1,130,111 in The Race to Dubai.  This is the second consecutive season and second time in his career he has won more than €1 million in a single season. It is also his highest single-season earnings, beating the €1,091,504 he amassed in 2011.
