Lee Westwood sealed the third Scandinavian Masters title of his career with a five-stroke victory over Ross Fisher on Saturday (local time).
World No.3 Westwood posted a three-under-par final round of 69 at the Bro Hof Slott Golf Club, reaching 19-under overall for the European Tour event near Stockholm in Sweden.
Fisher could only manage a one-under 71 for outright second at 14-under.
Spaniard Sergio Garcia made a run at Westwood with a five-under 67, but ultimately had to settle for a share of third at 13-under alongside Mikko Ilonen of Finland and Swede Peter Hanson.
Marcus Fraser was the best of the Australians on nine-under in a share of 14th spot.
Westwood won the same competition in a playoff for the first victory of his professional career in 1996, and bagged his second success by three shots in 2000.
He played it safe on the last day of the 2012 edition, carding just one birdie on the front nine, and dropping just one shot throughout with a bogey five at the 6th.
Westwood countered that slip with an eagle three at the 12th, before his second and final birdie of the round at 15 ended his challengers' slim hopes.
"It feels really special winning here another time - I've won it in three decades now which just shows how old we're getting," he said.
"I played really well this week - you don't win tournaments by five shots without playing well.
"I missed a few short putts on the front nine, had a lot of chances (in) the first 10 holes and could have really put some breathing space between me and the field.
"Having said that when I needed to on the back nine - when they got a bit closer and put me under a bit of pressure - I managed to make a great eagle at 12, good birdie at 15 and pull away.
"I hit some really solid shots. It didn't look like I was hitting it close on the last three holes but I can tell you those last three holes I hit it exactly where I wanted to every time."
Westwood will now head to the Olympic Club near San Francisco full of confidence going into an eagerly anticipated US Open.
The 39-year-old, who finished tied third at the US Open behind runaway winner Rory McIlroy last year, will be aiming to end his long wait for a first major championship victory.
Scott Strange was the next best Australian behind Fraser on six-under in equal 30th position, followed by Richard Green (five-under), Daniel Gaunt (one-over) and Andrew Dodt (two-over).
