Westwood wins at Royal Zoute
Lee Westwood captured his fourth European Tour title of the season at Royal Zoute when he rolled in a 25 foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to win the Belgacom Open.
The Ryder Cup player from Worksop had shot a closing 66 to force a play-off with Sweden’s Fredrik Jacobson, who carded a 67 for a 16 under par total of 268. At the first sudden-death hole, Jacobson was inside Westwood, but he was unable to match the Englishman’s birdie.
