World No. 1 Lee Westwood Wins Nedbank Golf Challenge Event by Eight Shots

Lee Westwood, the world’s top-ranked golfer, won the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa to claim a prize of $1.25 million.

The Englishman finished on 17-under-par at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, eight shots ahead of South Africa’s Tim Clark. Retief Goosen of South Africa and Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez were another shot back.

The 12-player field also included last year’s champion Robert Allenby of Australia, who tied for seventh with Ireland’s Padraig Harrington.

Westwood and Goosen both shot 4-under in the final round, with Clark and Jimenez the only other players to beat par today.
