Lee Westwood completed his hat-trick of Indonesian Masters titles with an hard fought playoff win at the Royal Jakarta Golf Club.
Westwood had blown a five-shot lead over Thailand’s Chapchai Nirat, but had to rely on his experience to steady the ship and win after the first extra hole.
“Fortunately in the play-off, I hit it into the exact same spot, I knew the line and it was a nice straight putt for the win,” said the 42-year old.
Westwood spoke highly of his Asian Tour counterparts, saying: “There are a lot of good players on the Asian Tour now and the standard is getting higher on this Tour and it’s harder to come over here and win.
“I’m very fortunate as I have my success over the years in Asia and I’ve witnessed myself how the Asian players have been improving,” said Westwood.
“It’s nice to have won here three times, its a good hat-trick.”
