Westwood breaks back into world top 25

World number two Phil Mickelson won the HSBC Champions in Shanghai at second play-off hole to edge out Ross Fisher and Lee Westwood and claim his first overseas title in 14 years.

The 37 year old American birdied the 538 yard 18th second time around to see off the challenge of the two Englishmen after all three players had ended the regulation 72 holes on ten under par 278. The win slightly closes the gap between Mickelson and World Number One Tiger Woods from almost 14 to 12.44 average points.

Lee Westwood's strong finish saw him continue his rise up the rankings, climbing four spots from 29th to 25th. He began the year in 49th position.

Brendan Jones from Australia picked up his seventh career victory on the Japan Golf Tour and his second of the 2007 season at the Mitsui Sumitomo VISA Taiheiyo Masters. This one stroke victory takes Jones to World Number 80 a jump of 68 positions.
