Jakarta, Indonesia: Justin Rose capped a ‘dream week’ by signing off with a final round 10-under-par 62 to win the Indonesian Masters.
The Indonesian Masters was hit by multiple weather suspensions during the week, but that did not faze the world number six who posted a four-round total of 29-under-par 259 – eight shots ahead of his closest rival.
Rose said: “It is my last event of the season and to finish the year on a good note is really nice. I have had a dream week and I have played incredible golf – 29 under par is very good golf.”
After completing 10 holes from his third round in the morning today, England’s Rose was back at the starting tee in 30 minutes.
The Englishman, who won the Olympic gold medal last year, got his round going with a birdie on the third hole before embarking on a stunning run with four birdies and an eagle starting from the par-four fifth at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club.
Rose’s lead was never threatened when he surged further ahead with three birdies in his next four holes after making the turn in 29. He dropped a shot on 16 but delighted the galleries by closing with a birdie on 18.
Thailand’s Phachara Khongwatmai claimed second place thanks to a flawless closing 65 while Zimbabwe’s Scott Vincent fired a 69 to take third place at the Asian Tour season-ending event.
Meanwhile, Indian S. Chikkarangappa secured his Tour card for 2018 at the expense of China’s Liu Yan-wei by taking the last 61st spot on the Asian Tour Order of Merit.
