The English golfer Lee Westwood completed a runaway win by 7 shots at the Thailand Open, on the back of what he regards as the best golf of his glittering career.

The former world number one chalked up his third win in Asia this season with a final round of 69 to finish 22-under par, having started the tournament with rounds of 60 and 64.

The US Masters champion Charl Schwartzel finished second to Westwood whose 37th career title has returned him to number two in the world behind his countryman Luke Donald.
