FJ ambassador Lee Westwood (FJ Sport & SciFlex) won his third Nordea Masters title in resounding fashion with a five shot triumph at Bro Hof Slott.
The World Number Three was simply irresistible from tee to green all week, and could even afford to miss five putts from inside six feet over the first ten holes of his closing 69.Lee will be delighted with his performance this week as he prepares to make his 57th attempt at a first Major Championship victory at next week’s US Open.
Westwood, who recorded his first European Tour victory in this event back in 1996 and won again in 2000 en route to becoming European Number One for the first time, said: “It feels really special winning here another time – I’ve won it in three decades now which just shows how old we’re getting!
“I played really well this week - you don’t win tournaments by five shots without playing well.”
After starting the day with a three shot lead, Westwood curled in a 15 footer at the third.
He then missed a four foot birdie putt at the fourth, and saw a par putt of the same length horseshoe out at the sixth.
The 39 year old missed further birdie chances from inside six feet at the eighth, ninth and tenth and at that stage his nearest competitors had moved to within two.
But while those two had eventful back nines, Westwood hit top gear down the closing stretch. He hit a brilliant approach to seven feet at the long 12th and eagled, and fired a wedge into five feet at the 15th for a birdie before paring his way in for a 19 under par total to claim the first place cheque of €250,000.
