Westwood triumphs; Jeev tied 13th


The Chandigarh-pro signed off with a total of eight-under 280 at the Earth Course of the Jumeirah Golf Estates.
It was not a perfect start to the day as Jeev stumbled to bogeys on the third and sixth before picking up his lone front-nine birdie on the seventh to make the turn one-over.
He struck form on his way back and after parring the first three holes, the Indian struck a birdie on the 13th hole.

An eagle on the par-five 15th hole and another birdie on 17th had him perfectly placed for a higher finish on the leaderboard but a dropped stroke on the day’s last hole dashed his hopes.

Lee Westwood achieved a European Tour double on Sunday by winning the season-ender. An imperious eight-under-par 64 gave him a final 23-under total of 265 and a runaway six-stroke win over fellow Briton Ross McGowan (68).
Westwood's rival for the Race to Dubai money-list, Rory McIlroy (67) of Britain, was third on 273. Westwood picked up 1.77 million euros ($2.37 million) for his double triumph.
"The way I played today under this much pressure and the circumstances of it all was about as good as I've ever played," Westwood told reporters after a flawless eight-birdie round.

"It's easily the biggest moment in my golfing career so far. I knew what I had to do and to go out and shoot 66-64 at the weekend, gives me a lot of confidence for the future.”
Final scores: 265: Lee Westwood (Bri) 66, 69, 66, 64; 271: Ross McGowan (Bri) 71, 66, 66, 68; 273: Rory McIlroy (Bri) 68, 69, 69, 67; 274: Padraig Harrington (Ire) 68, 69, 69, 68; Geoff Ogilvy (Aus) 70, 69, 68, 67; 275: Alexander Noren (Swe) 70, 69, 67, 69; 276: Sergio Garcia (Spa) 71, 67, 69, 69; Adam Scott (Aus) 68, 73, 67, 68.

Kapur third
The title eluded him but Indian pro Shiv Kapur retained his full playing rights on the Asian Tour for next season, overcoming a topsy-turvy day to sign off tied third at the Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open golf tournament at Siem Reap on Sunday.
Kapur carded two-under 70 to end his campaign with a total of seven-under 281, two strokes behind winner Marcus Both of Australia, who carded a 67.
Among other Indians, Anirban lahiri produced his best card of the week -- a four-under 68 -- to finish tied 13th with a total of 284. Vikrant Chopra was a stroke adrift at tied 17th after returning a two-under 70. Rahil Gangjee ended tied 38th after signing a card of two-over 74 that left his total at one-over 289. Amandeep Johl was at the bottom of the heap after withdrawing midway through the round.
