Not many players can claim to be undefeated at a Worldwide Tour event, but Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Lee Westwood earned those rare bragging rights this weekend, capturing the Asian Tour’s Niaga Indonesian Masters in his third straight appearance at the event.

Westwood, who won back-to-back Indonesian Masters titles in 2011 and 2012 (his first two appearances at Royal Jakarta Golf Club), made a birdie on the first hole of a playoff on Sunday to capture his third crown.

“I’ve been very fortunate,” Westwood said in his post-round press conference. “As soon as I turned up five years ago, I liked the course and thought it might suit my game. It’s nice to have come here three times and won three times. It’s a good hat-trick.”

The win marks the 42nd career win for Westwood across the worldwide professional tours, including nine on the Asian Tour – all with a Titleist golf ball.

“I’ve always wanted to be a golfer that plays all over the world and I started winning on different continents very early in my career," said Westwood.

"It’s something I’m immensely proud of and [winning in] 19 different countries is incredible.”

Pro V1x loyalist Kalem Richardson finished alone in third, one shot shy of joining the playoff.

Congratulations, Lee!

Do you know how many how many 3-foot putts Titleist Brand Ambassador Robert Streb has made this season on the PGA Tour? 

The answer is... all of them. 

In the video above Robert shares some advice on holing more putts and provides us with a few keys, including:

• Visualize your line (for putts with break, Robert uses a second golf ball, placed to the side of the cup)
• Develop a consistent pre-shot routine
• Keep your head and body quiet throughout the stroke

Hopefully, these will help you on the greens.
