Englishman Steve Webster broke down in tears after winning the Portugal Masters, his second victory on the European Tour. His 25-under par total was achieved with an outstanding final round of 64.

The 32-year-old ended the week two shots ahead of Robert Karlsson who also finished strongly with a round of 65 on Sunday.

The resort course in Vilamoura provided plenty of birdie opportunities; this was highlighted in the first round by Martin Kaymer who broke the Oceânico Victoria Golf Club's course record with a 61.

The win comes five months after Webster?s mother passed away. His father Terry was there to congratulate him on the 18th green where he broke down in tears.

Webster won his first European Tour event two years ago when he claimed the Italian Open. The win in Portugal earns him £350,000 and moves him into 26th place on the European Tour Order of Merit.
