Westwood canters to win in Malaysia

6:31 am on 21 April 2014

A four-hour weather delay was the only obstacle for Lee Westwood as the English golfer cantered to a seven-stroke win in the European Tour's Malaysian Open to end an almost two-year trophy drought.

The former world number one, leading by a stroke ahead of compatriot Andy Sullivan, carded a bogey-free final round of four-under-par 68 for a four-day total of 18-under.

Austrian Bernd Wiesberger (67), South African Louis Oosthuizen (68) and Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts (70) finished tied for the second spot at 11-under.
