Westwood’s Still Got Bite In His Game!
The guy is 47 years old but don’t let his age fool you. The veteran Englishman, Lee Westwood (pictured) one of the best golfers in the world, was crowned Europe’s number one golfer for the third time in his career with a second-placed finish at the European Tour’s season-ending World Tour Championship.
Westwood won the Harry Vardon Trophy again 20 years after he first lifted it, with a steady final-round 68 to go 14-under for the tournament and finish one stroke behind the leader.
Westwood won US$2mn for finishing at the top of the Race to Dubai leaderboard, while overnight co-leader Patrick Reed lost the chance to become the first American to claim the honour as he ended tied in third place with Viktor Hovland at 13-under.
Westwood, who thought he would never win again, claimed a 25th European Tour triumph and second Rolex Series title earlier this season at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
