LEE Westwood claimed the 25th European Tour title of his impressive career with style, fending off Sunday charges from Tommy Fleetwood and Victor Perez to win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship by two shots, at 19 under par overall.
Westwood drained a short birdie putt on the 18th hole to punctuate a final round of five-under-par 67 at Abu Dhabi GC, and lifted his arms in celebration.
IT marked the first win for the 46-year-old Englishman since the 2018 Nedbank Golf Challenge, which in turn was his first European Tour win in over four years.
Westwood’s first professional win was in 1996 at the Volvo Scandinavian Masters. His victory in Abu Dhabi on Sunday means he’s now won in four different decades on the European Tour.
“I can’t believe I’m that old,” he said in his post-round interview, his voice thick with emotion. “It’s getting harder. It’s just nice to come out and keep proving that you’ve still got it.”
