Lee Westwood fights back the tears after Nedbank win

Majestic 64 seals Nedbank triumph

What a Sunday for Lee Westwood who shot a majestic 64 (-8) to win the Nedbank Challenge, his first victory on the European Tour for four years.

To celebrate we're adding in some pics from a GolfPunk Classic from 2008. Shot at Wentworth. Welcome back to the winner's circle Westy!

The former world number one took the outright lead from Louis Oosthuizen with a birdie at 17, completing the back nine in 31 to finish on 15 under.

The South African's challenge faded as he finished third on 11 under behind Spain's overnight leader Sergio Garcia.

"I'm a bit emotional to be honest," said a tearful Westwood, 45. "You're never sure whether you're going to be able to do it again.

"Until now my emotions felt really under control all day, which is what I've been working hard on. I was just trying to hit fairways, stick to my game-plan and hit it in the right places.

"I've got a bit of a process I'm going through with my golf swing, I'm starting to see better shots; the seven iron into 17 is probably one of the best shots I've ever hit and it all just worked."

Westy, who made six birdies and an eagle on the second hole during his round, celebrated his third Nedbank triumph with caddie and girlfriend Helen Storey after holing a putt on the 18th. This was his 24th European Tour win.



Oosthuizen's challenge faltered at the 15th where he bogeyed and then doubled the last, while Sergio shot a 70 as his two-shot overnight lead went west...



Rory McIlroy (71) was way down in 21st place at -1.
