       Lee Westwood fought back the tears after ending his victory drought at the Nedbank Golf Challenge

Westwood is the oldest ever victor of the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the age of 45, beating the record of 41-year-old Nick Price in 1998, and to shoot 64 to win on such a daunting course as the Gary Player Country Club, where danger lurks on every hole, is a magnificent performance.

This was his second best finish since the first week of July when he was Tied-27th in the Open de France. Since then his only result better than that was T-10 at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia.

After defeating Sergio Garcia in the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa on Sunday, golfer Lee Westwood capped off the victory with an animated embrace from girlfriend-turned-caddie Helen Storey.

Shubhankar after being even par for the first nine holes on the back stretch of the course, was on a birdie spree on back nine when he had four birdies in five holes between second and sixth holes.

"I'm getting old, I did one for the old men today".

Garcia came home with a 70 to take second place on 12-under, while Oosthuizen, who led briefly and still had a realistic chance to catch Westwood, made a double bogey on the 18th after a drive way right and then ricocheting his second shot off the concrete pathway to take third place on 11-under with a 69.


The victory is Westwood's 24th on the European Tour and his first on the circuit since 2014, although he did also win the Indonesian Masters on the Asian Tour in 2015.

The European Tour now heads for Dubai and its final event of the 2018 season the DP World Championship Dubai where Australasia will be represented by Wade Ormsby, Lucas Herbert and Ryan Fox with Jason Scrivener appearing as if he will miss out on making the sixty players to tee it up in the US$8 million event.

Belgian Thomas Detry finished at six under, one clear of England's Aaron Rai and two ahead of another Englishman in Chris Paisley and South African Darren Fichardt.

A two-shot swing on the last is great going into the final round", said Oosthuizen."Mentally it was a very big putt for me after a really lucky break with the ball rolling all the way down to the hole from the fringe.

"A little bit relieved". Just nice to do it again under pressure and win against a couple of quality players at the end there, Sergio and Louis were my two nearest challengers. "The seven iron into 17 is probably one of the best shots I've ever hit".
