Westwood Wins Malaysian Open By Seven Shots

Lee Westwood has won his 41st career title.

Lee Westwood has won the Malaysian Open by seven shots to secure his 41st career title.

The Englishman made two birdies and was already four shots clear after 11 holes before bad weather caused a four-hour suspension of play.

He went on to add two more birdies after play resumed to complete a round of 68 and an 18-under-par total.

Westwood came seventh at last week's Masters, and this was his first tournament win since the 2012 Nordea Masters in Sweden.

The world number 36 credits his revival to recent changes he had made to his game,the BBC reports.

"I started working with a new coach a few weeks ago, Mike Walker, and Billy Foster came back on the bag at the end of last year, so I was going back to what I had done before because it had worked," said the world number 36.

This is the 13th title Westwood has won in Asia.
