Foster gains first professional win

Mark Foster clinched his first Challenge Tour title when he won the Stanbic Zambia Open in Lusaka.

Foster, who plays out of the same Worksop Golf Club as Lee Westwood, scored a 68 on the final day to secure him a one-shot victory at 14-under-par 278.

"I played three rounds of golf with Lee before coming to Zambia, so maybe that helped me," said Foster, who has played on the European Challenge Tour for the past five years.

"I'm just very pleased to have won my first tournament victory as a pro. I've never putted on greens as grainy as these -- they were a really tough part of this tournament," Foster said.
