SUN CITY, South Africa (AP) At times over the last 4 1/2 years Lee Westwood wondered if he'd ever win another tournament on the European Tour.

Westwood was finally back in the winner's circle on Sunday and it was in a familiar setting, clinching his third title at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa by coming from behind to overhaul a three-shot deficit in the final round.

Westwood denied Sergio Garcia a wire-to-wire victory at Sun City and Louis Oosthuizen a first success at his home tournament by surging past the two major winners with a fabulous 8-under-par 64.
