Following a strong 7th place finish in the Masters, Old Palm resident and member Lee Westwood immediately hopped on a plane and flew to Kuala Lumpur for the Maybank Malaysian Open. It was a long trip, Westwood had little time to recover from jet lag, and yet he dominated the tournament to win by seven strokes. “It’s a golf course that suits my game,” said Westwood. “It’s very tight in certain areas. I played well, I putted well and the short game is good.” Westwood led every round to finish 18 under par and capture his 13th victory in Asia. Not even the more than four-hour rain and lightning delay on Sunday could stop his momentum. In fact, just for good measure, Westwood birdied the last hole. He has been working with a new golf coach the past few weeks, and the results are impressive. “It’s started to work already,” explained Westwood. “The last couple of weeks I’ve played well and this week I’ve obviously played very well.” Westwood wasn’t the only Old Palm resident and member whose game is in top form—Louis Oosthuizen finished the Maybank Malaysian Open tied for second.
