Golfer Lee Westwood retained his world’s No. 1 position with an exciting finish to the Ballatine’s Championship in South Korea over the weekend.
Lee had to sweat out a birdie putt attempt on the last hole by Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez, which if it had gone in would have put the two friends in a playoff. The win is Lee’s second in as many weeks (he won last week on the Asian Tour in Jakarta to take over the world’s No. 1 ranking).
Jimenez, referred to as the “Mechanic” on tour for his preference to work on rather than drive his sports cars, had four rounds under par but came up short in the end. Lee opened with an even 72 but then reeled off three straight rounds under par at the Blackstone Country Club in Incheon. He shot a closing round 67 to put the pressure on Jimenez. Lee’s first win this year on the European PGA tour moves him into sixth place for that tour’s Race to Dubai championship.
Lee is one of three golf ambassadors for UPS and helps to champion UPS’s “We Love Logistics” message during tournament play, at customer hospitality events and through golf clinics conducted at UPS-sponsored golf events around the world.
Congratulations, Lee, and keep up the good work!
