Victory in Indonesia See’s Pro V1x Loyalist Lee Westwood Regain World Number 1 Spot
Posted: April 24, 2011
Asian Tour - Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Lee Westwood
shot 4 rounds in the
60’s to win the Indonesian Masters at The Royale Jakarta Golf Club over the
weekend to regain his spot as the worlds number 1 golfer on his 38th
Westwood, who had a 5 shot lead going into the final day,
was forced to wait to secure his victory on the 18th due to a
thunder storm. Coming back out after an hour long wait, Westwood played a
superb second shot into the 18th green, commenting on camera that
all good things come to those that wait.
A final hole par completed a 69 for Westwood, winning the
tournament by 3 shots. Westwood had a slow start to the day, allowing the field
to close the gap, but made a difficult birdie putt on 11 to give his round some
“Yeah, that was probably the hardest putt I had all day. It
was 15 feet and had a three foot break on it. I birdied the next with two good
shots and played solidly. I managed to pick up a few shots and birdied the 16th
from four feet. I was quite comfortable after that,” said Westwood.
Up on completing his victory, Westwood had not yet secured
the number one spot, and had to wait to see how Pro V1 X Loyalist Luke Donald
did at the Heritage.
“It was about coming here this week and trying to win the
Indonesian Masters and I’ve done that. I’ve ticked every box this week so we
will have to wait and see what happens.” said Westwood.
Donald lost in a playoff early this morning, thus ensuring Westwoods
win was enough to secure the number 1 spot.

The event was the second of 3 Co-Sanctioned European Tour events in Asia, with the Ballantines Championships in Korea this week being the last before the Tour heads back to Europe for the Open de Espana. This has been a great period for Titleist players so far, so let's hope it continues next week. Be sure to check Team Titleist regularly for updates on this event.
V1x Loyalist Luke Donald
lost in a playoff on Sunday at The Heritage at Harbour
Town Links. A win would have seen Donald secure the World Number 1 spot, but a
difficult lie in a bunker on 18 during the second playoff hole, meant that
Donald could only manage a bogey.
Donald saved difficult pars on the 71st and 72nd
holes to force the playoff. Despite not claiming the world number 1 spot, his
second place finish was enough to take Donald to 1st on the PGA Tour
Money List for 2011 and he moved to 2nd in the Fed Ex Cup Rankings.
