STOCKHOLM, Sweden, June 9 (UPI) -- Lee Westwood shot another round in the 60s Saturday to win the Nordea Masters in Sweden by five strokes.

Westwood carded a three-under 69 in the rare Saturday finale for a four-round score of 269, five shots ahead of Ross Fisher, who shot 71 for the day.

Saturday capped a sizzling tournament for Westwood, who was the only player in the field to break 70 in all four rounds.

"The positive is that I played really well this week," said Westwood, who turned in a 64 on Thursday sandwiched between two rounds of 68. "You don't win tournaments by five shots without playing really well."

Westwood played a relatively steady round with one bogey offset by a pair of birdies and an eagle on No. 12.

Sergio Garcia made a run at Westwood Saturday with six birdies before dunking his tee shot in the water on 17 and finishing with a 67 and a share of third place with Mikko Ilonen and Peter Hanson.
