Persistence pays off. Yesterday Lee Westwood won the Indonesian Masters in Jakarta to reclaim the world golf ranking’s No. 1 seat from Germany’s Martin Kaymer.
Lee celebrated his 38th birthday on Sunday and what better present to himself than to wrestle away the top spot from the young, talented German. All was not just birthday wishes and blowing out candles as Lee won on the other side of the world and had to wait the equivalent of a half-day to find out if he would, indeed, again become the world’s top rated golfer.
