What happened at the Nedbank Golf Challenge?

Lee Westwood landed his first European Tour win for 1,666 days.

The Gary Player Country Club hosted a world-class leaderboard, and Westwood used all his experience to see out an emotional victory.

It was Sergio Garcia was leading after 54-holes but a bogey on the opening hole had him on the back-foot.

Westwood made his intentions clear on a track where he’s won twice before, carding eagle on the 2nd and a birdie at the 8th.

Home favourite Louis Oosthiuzen got the crowds cheering after he made three birdies in a row at the turn but saw his chances slip away with a three-putt on 15.

Westwood made two further birdies at 16 and 17 which allowed him to close out the 43rd win of his professional career.

His final round 64 was the the low-round of the week.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
