In 1996, a young Lee Westwood won his maiden European tour victory at the Nordea Masters. Now fast forward to 2012 and Westwood has added another Nordea Masters to his impressive worldwide resume. Westwood, in FJ Sport and SciFlex, shot rounds of 68, 64, 68, and 69 to reach the -19 under par total, five clear of his closest competitor.
“I played really well this week - you don’t win tournaments by five shots without playing well.” Westwood later said of the impressive victory. He then added some levity to the moment," It feels really special winning here another time – I’ve won it in three decades now which just shows how old we’re getting!"
This is Westwood's 22nd career win on the European tour.
Westwood will now head to The Olympic Club in San Francisco for his shot at the U.S. Open. In the opening two rounds he will be paired with fellow FJ staffers Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald.
Congratulations to Lee Westwood. Winning the same tournament in 3 decades is very special indeed. The grouping of Westwood, McIlroy and Donald at the Open should be memorable.
Westwood is one of the great modern players. Would love to see him win a major.
Well done Lee, can't wait to see him play with Luke and Rors! All Euro FJ pairing... going to be a good one!
Congrats on another great win LW & FJ ! Here's to more success at the Open !!
