Lee Westwood cruised to a seven-shot victory on Sunday in the Thailand Golf Championship. Westwood wearing FJ Sport and SciFlex set the pace early, opening the tournament with a 12 under par 60 on the Amata Springs course. He then followed the stellar round with an impressive eight-under par 64 to open a 11 shot lead through two rounds of play.
"I've amazed myself really...It's been
staggering, it all came together well. It's probably the best I've ever
played." Westwood said of his blistering start to the tourney.
Despite his massive lead, Westwood felt the pressure of holding onto it, "I've never had an 11-shot lead before and it was difficult to come out
and refocus and reset goals...it's yours to
lose really with an 11-shot lead. There was pressure involved.
Yesterday, I didn't know how to approach it or handle it." Westwood handled the pressure just closing with a three under par 69 to win by seven shots. The win moves Westwood to number two on the official world golf rankings.
Might not be my favorite player, but at least he chooses great shoes...Nice job FJ!
Congrats to Lee. After his first two rounds, I thought he was going to win in a runaway anyway. Go Team FootJoy!
Good win for Westwood. The 2012 season can't get here fast enough.
After the 29th place on the Dubai WC, this is more according with Lee's value. Congrats to him and FJ.
It's not too hard to win a tournament when you shoot 12 under par in the first round.
Congratulations to him for performing well! UPS is probably pretty proud, too. :p
How many wins will westwood have this season?
