Lee Westwood marked his 38th birthday with victory in the Indonesian Masters after a final-round 69 saw him clinch the title by three strokes from Thongchai Jaidee.

Westwood carded four birdies and one bogey at Royale Jakarta Golf Club to finish on 19 under par, comfortably clear of Jaidee.

The Thai shot a superb 65 to finish at 16 under.

The victory left Westwood waiting to see if he would can regain the world No 1 spot, which depended on fellow Englishman Luke Donald’s finish at the Heritage on the PGA Tour in the early hours of this morning.

Westwood was relaxed over his possible return to the top spot: “It was about coming here this week and trying to win the Indonesian Masters and I’ve done that,” he said.
