The British golfer Lee Westwood won the European Tour's Ballantine's Championship with a flawless final round to retain his position as world number one.

The Englishman proved his class at the Blackstone Golf Club near Seoul, carding five birdies on his way to a superb last round 67 and 12 under par for the tournament, a shot clear of Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez.

The win was the 38-year-old's first on the European Tour since November 2009 and his second consecutive tournament victory following his triumph at the Indonesian Masters last week.
