Stockholm - England's Lee Westwood claimed his first tournament victory in more than a year at the Nordea Masters on Saturday, finishing with a five-shot cushion over Ross Fisher to claim his third title at Bro Hof Slott.

The world number three opened the tournament with a four-under-par opening round of 68 and produced a stunning round of 64 at the halfway stage to move three shots clear of the field.

Westwood maintained his three-shot cushion on Friday and in the final round could even afford to miss five putts from inside six feet over the first 10 holes of his closing 69.

The 39-year-old Westwood finished on a 19-under-par total of 269, with fellow Englishman Fisher closing with a 71 to finish on 274.

Sergio Garcia's closing 67 was the best round of the day and moved the Spaniard up to a share of third place on 275 alongside Finn Mikko Ilonen and Sweden's Peter Hanson.

It was Westwood's first victory since the Ballantine's Championship in May 2011 and came nearly four months after his runner-up place at the Dubai Desert Classic.
