Steady Westwood seals Thailand victory
The third-ranked English star finished at 22-under 266 at Amata Spring Country Club. He opened with rounds of 60 and 64 and shot a 73 on Saturday in the Asian Tour event.
''It means a lot, any win does,'' Westwood said. ''It's special this week because of the difficulty of the golf course, who I was up against in the weekend.
''Charl is the Masters champion and he has had a great year. The fact that I led wire to wire - 60 in the fisrt round and 64 in the second round, 20 under after two rounds - it's yours to lose really with an 11-shot lead. There was pressured involved.''
Schwartzel closed with a 72.
''It was a tough day. The wind probably blew the hardest today compared to the last three rounds,'' the South African star said. ''I played great. If it wasn't for Lee, I would have probably won the tournament.''
American Michael Thompson was another stroke back after a 70.
