Westwood limps to Indonesian title
Lee Westwood defended his Indonesian Masters title in Jakarta despite a disappointing final round of two-over-par 74.
The world number three was eight clear after 54 holes and looked set to easily reclaim his crown, but then stuttered in the final round with three bogeys in the last eight holes.
However, Westwood had done enough in his opening three rounds to ensure he remained just ahead of Thailand's Thaworn Wiratchant, who finished five under for the day to take second place.
Indian pair Gaganjeet Bhullar and Shiv Kapur were tied for third on 12 under with compatriot Anirban Lahiri completing the top five one shot further back.
"Today was hard. It is never easy playing in these conditions and I had to play 32 holes. 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," said Westwood.
"You never know how to play with such a big lead. You don't know if you should attack or defend. It is quite hard to get your mental attitude around it. It was a case of staying patient and calm and playing the holes correctly. It was exhausting," he added.
"Hopefully this will kick-start my year. I've played well without any wins so hopefully I can go on and win other tournaments. It is tough when you are the favourite because if you don't win then it will be disappointing. There was a lot of pressure so I'm glad I did it."
