Lee Westwood has waited over two years to win a trophy, although there have been many close calls, but he picked one up at the Portugal Masters at Vilamoura as he won the tournament by two shots from Italian Francesco Molinari and four from Padraig Harrington

The Englishman also picks up a rather large £458,000 cheque, enough to propel him from fourth to first on the European money list.

Westwood said after the win;

“It was nice to finish it off, you never know when the next win is going to come and you start to question yourself. You always slightly doubt yourself in the back of your mind and to be number one again feels great. It’s been nearly 10 years since I won it.

I’m also delighted about the world rankings. I always have a good look at that and it’s a reflection of my consistency. But winning is definitely a habit and I got out of the habit. Hopefully now I have won again I can win more.”
