WATCH: Westwood fights back tears after Nedbank win

Lee Westwood Nedbank

Lee Westwood was almost reduced to tears after winning the Nedbank Golf Challenge – his 24th European Tour title and first for four-and-a-half years. 

The 45-year-old Englishman, who now moves into eighth place in all-time victories on the tour, carded a bogey-free final round of 64 to win by three shots from 54-hole leader Sergio Garcia.

It was former world No.1 Westwood’s first win since the Maybank Malaysian Open in April 2014 and, speaking to Sky Sports’ Tim Barter in the aftermath, his emotions came spilling out.
