In the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, Justin Rose posted a 2-under-par 35-35=70 to claim his fourth career PGA TOUR title and first World Golf Championship.
Rose stepped on the 18th tee with a two-shot lead, and then blocked his tee shot into the right rough. He attempted to reach the green with his second but landed to the right of the greenside bunkers, leaving a difficult pitch with water in play. His third ran over the green but stopped just short of the water. From there, he got up and down for bogey to post 16-under-par 272. He then had to sweat out a 9'1" birdie attempt from Bubba Watson that would have forced a playoff had it dropped. For the week, Rose took 1.617 putts per GIR and ranked in the top 20 in driving accuracy, putting and GIR. He circled a field-tying-high 23 birdies to only seven bogeys. He is scheduled to compete in this week's Transitions Championship. Mar. 11 - 6:52 pm et
