Jakarta, Indonesia – Lee Westwood closed with a two-over 74 on Sunday, but it was enough to earn a two-stroke win at the Indonesian Masters.
Westwood, who repeated as champion, finished at 16-under-par 272. Due to weather problems earlier in the week, he had to play the final 32 holes on Sunday.
Luckily for the third-ranked player in the world, he led by eight shots heading into the final round.
"Today was hard. It is never easy playing in these conditions and I had to play 32 holes," Westwood stated. "It was draining out there and I was really feeling it on the back nine. When you are in contention and under pressure, it seems to zap your energy faster."
Westwood had seven birdies and two bogeys to wrap up his third round earlier Sunday. In the final round, he had two bogeys and two birdies on the front nine, before posting a lone birdie to go with three bogeys on the back side.
He became the 10th player in tour history to successfully defend a title.
Thaworn Wiratchant closed with a five-under 67 to take second place at 14- under-par 274. Gaganjeet Bhullar (69) and Shiv Kapur (67) shared third at minus-12.
Sung Lee started the final round eight back, but four birdies on the front side helped him close within three of Westwood's lead. However, Lee stumbled to five bogeys on the back nine to fall into a share of seventh at minus-nine.
