Lee Westwood, the world's number two golfer, championed the Indonesian Masters golf tournament on Sunday, a moment that coincided with his 38th birthday, Kompas daily reported on Monday.

The British golfer won the tournament after gaining 19 under par 269 at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club of East Jakarta.

"This is certainly my memorable birthday," he said.

Following the victory, Westwood gained a chance to climb for the world's number one golfer.

He said that the chance to grab the title from Martin Kaymer for Germany was just about the matter of time.

Westwood's chance, who was the number one golfer since Oct. 31, 2010 to Feb. 26, 2011, is opened wide as long as his teammate at the Ryder Cup in Europe, Luke Donald, fails to reach title in the PGA Tour.
