Lee Westwood has regained the top spot in golf’s world rankings after clinching victory by three strokes at the Indonesia Masters on Sunday.
His compatriot Luke Donald failed by the narrowest of margins to claim the No.1 spot for himself after losing the PGA Tour Heritage tournament in a sudden-death playoff to American Brandt Snedeker.
Victory at the PGA Tour event — which had more ranking points on offer than the tournament in Indonesia — would have seen Donald leapfrog Westwood and Germany’s Martin Kaymer, who has been the world’s highest ranked player since February.
Donald took a one-stroke lead into Sunday’s final round at the Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina and posted a one-under par 70 to finish on 12-under par.
But Snedeker shot the round of the day — posting a seven-under par 64 — to tie the lead with Donald, who almost holed his bunker shot at the 72nd hole to win the tournament.
