Lee Westwood wins Maybank Malaysian Open Golf 2014


The Maybank Malaysian Open 2014 took place on Sunday and world renowned golfer Lee Westwood won through a 4-under par 68 for an 18-under 4-day total of 270.

He won the championship 7 shots clear form the 3 others closest to him which were Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger, South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen and Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts. Westwood of course is no stranger to the Malaysian Open where he had previously won here some time back but that was way back before it was co-sanctioned with the European and Asian Tour which was in 1997.

Prior to the Malaysian Open, he only managed to finished seventh at the US Masters which puts him without a win in 64 major championships.

His 13th win in Asia is his 36th in his overall career where he started with a round 65 at the opening round. He then carded a 66 on Friday when he finished Round 3 with a 71 only to bounce back in the final to score 68 and thereby taking home the grand prize of US2.75 million. This is one of the most prestigious events in Asia which was held at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
