Justin Rose heads to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Abu Dhabi GC looking to break his so-near-but-yet-so-far record in the region.
Rose has made just two previous visits to the course and tournament, enough to suggest that he likes it well enough to win, but only if he can keep one pesky round out of the log book. On debut in 2013 he started like a train, pegging 67-69-68 to lead by two with 18 holes to play; a final round 71 saw him fall one swing shy of the winning total. Two years later he stymied himself with an opening 73 before cutting through the field with two 69s and a Sunday 65 for T12. He might argue that he is due a win in the U.A.E. because he has four second placed finishes there and was last seen in the country leading after 54 holes before finishing T4 in the DP World Tour Championship. Two wins late in 2017 proved his summer hard work was pushing him in the right direction. Looks likely to be a threat. Jan 16 - 10:25 AM

World No. 6 Justin Rose ended 2017 on a heater but will wait a bit longer to get back in action for 2018, skipping this week's Sentry Tournament of Champions.

The Englishman qualified for this week's field with a fall win at the WGC-HSBC Champions but he's decided to sit this week out. That's nothing new for Rose, who pegged it here in 2011 but hasn't returned since, despite qualifying five (now six) more times. His WGC win was sandwiched in-between a run of 10 straight top 10s, worldwide, to end the year. Other than the WGC win, he also hoisted the hardware at the Turkish Airlines Open and Indonesian Masters on the European Tour and Asian Tour, respectively. Where we'll see Rose next is still up in the air. Last year he kicked off the year with starts at the Sony Open and then the Farmers. In 2016, his first worldwide start came at the Farmers. Back in 2015, he made an appearance on the European Tour's desert swing.

Justin Rose's prolific end of season run concluded with a comprehensive eight shot victory in the Asian Tour's Indonesian Masters at Royale Jakarta GC, confirmed with a stunning final round of 10-under-par 29-33=62 for a 72-hole total of 29-under 259; Thailand's 18-year-old phenom Phachara Khongwatmai claimed solo second.

Three shots clear of the field at the start of the last round, having played the final ten holes of his third round first thing in 3-under to complete a 66, Rose showed the chasers a clean set of heels with a breathtaking front nine that witnessed birdies at 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8, followed by a 20'0" eagle conversion at the ninth which even he laughed at. Nor did he stop, ticking 10, 12 and 13 to have his eyes on a 59. Alas he made bogey at 16, repaired by a final birdie at 18, to complete the second-lowest 72-hole total in Asian Tour history. He opened the event with a 62 and closed it that way too, missing just three greens in those laps and only nine all week. Since missing the cut in the PGA Championship he has been magnificent, never outside the top ten in nine starts (67.58 score average), with three wins in his last five. "A dream week and incredible golf," he said afterwards. "Huge positives, my game is in good shape."

Justin Rose held a three-shot advantage in the third round of the Indonesian Masters before thunderstorms curtailed Saturday's play with the Englishman having completed just eight holes.

Rose's first task Saturday was to complete his final two holes from round two and a bogey at 18 cut his lead over Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Scott Vincent to just a single stroke at the midpoint. But the World No. 5 responded on his third lap of Royale Jakarta Golf Club with birdies at 2, 3 and 5 to go three clear of Aphibarnrat and Vincent before officials called off play at 4.10pm due to storms. At that point, Rose had 11 holes still to go. Play will resume at 6.15am Sunday morning with the fourth round scheduled to commence at 7.30am with players teeing off in the same groups.

Justin Rose is still the man to catch in the Indonesian Masters at Royale Jakarta Golf Club after moving to 14-under but he faces an early alarm call on Saturday after a delay in Friday's second round left him with two holes to complete.

World No. 6 Rose started the day two clear after a brilliant opening 62 and continued on his merry way with four more red numbers at 4, 5, 6 and 9. He picked up another shot at 11 but following pars at 12 and 13 the Englishman had to take cover due to lightning activity. The delay didn't help him and Rose dropped his first shot of the week with a bogey-4 at 15, parred 16 and hit his approach to the edge of the par-4 17th before the hooter went for bad light. That slightly scratchy finish meant he ended the day just two clear of Kiradech Aphibarnat, who jumped up four spots to solo second with a flawless 64. It's a further stroke back to Giwhan Kim in third. Rose, along with 35 others, will complete their rounds when play resumes Saturday at 06:15 local.

Justin Rose thrashed a magnificent 10-under-par 31-31=62 to take the first round lead in the Indonesian Masters at Royale Jakarta Golf Club, two strokes clear of Thailand's Gunn Charoenkul.

The Englishman wasted no time taking command of the course (and the field) on Thursday, opening up on the back nine and ticking his very first hole. He then added pairs of par-breakers before the turn at 14 and 15, then 17 and 18. On the front nine he went one better, circling a hat-trick at 2, 3 and 4 before completing the lap with birdies at 6 and 9. "A dream start," admitted Rose. "I felt comfortable from the outset. I did all the right things today, I put the ball in play from the tee so with ball in hand and placing the ball on the fairway, you had a perfect lie for every shot providing you put the ball in the fairway. It was there for the taking. No wind, it was perfect golf conditions." It was a poorer day for two men chasing a rise into the world top 50. Brandt Snedeker shot level-par 72 and Dylan Frittelli could only manage 4-over 76.

Justin Rose will be looking to claim a second UBS Hong Kong Open title at the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling this week.

The course is not long, but it is testing and Rose likes it. He's said as much and he's also proved it when winning in 2015. That said, either side he finished MC and T36 so it's not all been good, the difference between those efforts was not his long game (he always hit plenty of greens), but his work around the greens (91% Scrambling for the win, less than 40% the other two appearances). The biggest question this week, however, is less 'Does the course fit?' than 'How will Rose react to his back nine last Sunday?' Remember, as he made the turn he was leading the DP World Tour Championship and with it the Race to Dubai. By the end of the round he had lost both. He said afterwards that he was distracted on 14 prior to hitting into water and regretted not standing back. That was the moment he wished he could replay. If the wound is healed quickly his form is strong: win-win-T4 is not bad at all.

Justin Rose let both the DP World Tour Championship and the Race to Dubai slip from his fingers on the back nine of the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai; his final round 2-under-par 32-38=70 left him T4 on 17-under 271 and second for the season.

The Englishman's progress to the turn was exemplary, including four birdies at 2, 3, 5 and 7, yet he was always aware that a bunched pack was awaiting any errors. It came at the 12th when his approach found sand and he made bogey. At 14 he compounded the mistake, finding water at the par-5 on his way to another bogey. Chasing birdies he dropped a final shot at 16, before ticking 18. "I'm not overly disappointed," he said. "I'm not going to grill myself, it's been an amazing end to the year. Great front nine today, perfect. It was 12, straightforward shot and made bogey. My momentum turned and I found it difficult to turn it round. But this form is the start of things. One round doesn't change that." He finished two back of the winner Jon Rahm and his failure to make eagle at the last left him second in the Race to Dubai.

Justin Rose heads into the final round of the 2017 European Tour season with two titles still within his grasp; he leads the DP World Tour Championship by one stroke, from Jon Rahm and Dylan Frittelli, on 15-under 201 after a third round of 7-under-par 33-32=65.

The Englishman was disappointed with his second lap of the Earth Course at Jumeirah, specifically his putting, and was seen working late into the night on the practice green, and then returned early to resume before his round. It helped. He ticked 1, 3 and 7 on the front nine to take the solo lead and then maintained the pace on the back nine to withstand a cavalry charge. He made a hat-trick of par breakers from the 12th, with the middle one earned by a chip-and-putt. At 16 he drained a 25-footer for his final birdie. He wanted another at the last, but his approach found water and he had to hole a knee-knocker for par and that one shot lead. "So much fun out there," he said. "But a one shot lead with a pack behind me like that, it's not much. Feeling better with the putter. That five footer for par at the last broke 18 inches so that's a big boost. A big opportunity tomorrow to win the Race to Dubai, that's how I view it. Just go for it."

A late error halted Justin Rose's progress in the DP World Tour Championship on the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates; he carded a second round 2-under-par 35-35=70 for a 36-hole total of 8-under 136, two adrift of the leader Matthew Fitzpatrick.

The Englishman had to fight to make his score on Friday having been a little more fluid on Thursday. Nonetheless it was, until the end, a professional day's work. He made back-to-back birdies at 6 and 7 before dropping a shot at No. 8. On the back nine he again made a brace of red numbers at 14 and 15, but he missed a short putt on the final green to drop a shot. "A tricky one to sum up," he admitted. "I drove the ball really, really well but I found it hard to read the greens today. It could have been a couple better with good putting. I was under-reading the putts." He's two back of the leader and two clear of Tommy Fleetwood, whose Race to Dubai No. 1 rankings he is chasing this week. Both battles head into the weekend.

Justin Rose's quest to top the 2017 Race to Dubai was given a boost after his superb first round 6-under-par 35-31=66 in the DP World Tour Championship on the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai left him T2, just one swing behind the leader Patrick Reed.

The Englishman trails his compatriot Tommy Fleetwood in the seasonal rankings and now leads the projected re-rank, but is concentrating on the tournament first and foremost - and he did so impressively. Moreover it was achieved in front of Fleetwood who could only manage a 1-over 73 of his own. Rose began quietly with birdies at 2 and 7, plus a bogey at the ninth. The back nine was spectacular however. He ticked 10 and 11 for a fine start, but then holed a greenside bunker shot at the 14th for an eagle-3. He very nearly holed from 25'0" on the 17th, but the ball pulled up an inch short. No matter, he clipped a sand wedge to kick-in range on the final hole. "Really happy with that as a start," he said. "Can't rely on comebacks like the last two wins, so glad to be up there already. Do I look ahead? I'm trying to keep the scenarios out of my head."

Justin Rose is a man with two targets this week: the DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, and number one in the Race to Dubai rankings also.

Rose must feel ten feet high at the moment. His year ticked along nicely in the early months, he came oh so close to winning the Masters and then? It fell away somewhat. Yet he put in the hard yards and was rewarded with a fine FedEx Cup Play-Off series. The wins refused to come, however, until he overcame an eight shot 54-hole deficit to win the World Golf Championship HSBC Champions and, seven days later, a nine shot 36-hole disadvantage to claim the Turkish Airlines Open. Twice second in this event (in 2012 and 2014), he was also in contention last year before a 78 on Saturday (he shot 66 either side of that). He has form when it comes to chasing down not only a win in the final event of the European Tour season, but the rankings title with it. He did just that when squeezing out Ernie Els at Valderrama in 2007.

Justin Rose secured his 10th European win and second in two weeks after firing a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in Sunday's final round at the Turkish Airlines Open to reach 18-under 266 and beat Nicolas Colsaerts and Dylan Frittelli by one shot.

Rose was was nine behind Colserts at halfway but went 64-65 at the weekend to follow up his victory in last week's WGC-HSBC Champions in China. Starting the day in T3 and two off the pace, Rose traded a birdie at 2 with a bogey at 3 and then kicked on with red numbers at 7, 9, 12, 15 and 16. It eventually came down to the final hole with both Rose and Colsaerts facing eight-foot birdie putts. The Belgian missed but the Englishman drained his to make another serious leap on the Race to Dubai and heap pressure on leader Tommy Fleetwood (T23 this week). Rose is now up to second place and just 134,839 behind his compatriot. His victory in Turkey was founded on superb ball-striking as he finished 1st for GIR (88.9%) and 2nd in Driving Accuracy.

Justin Rose gave his twin aims of winning the Turkish Airlines Open and closing in on Tommy Fleetwood at the top of the Race to Dubai a huge boost thanks to a bogey-free third-round 7-under-par 31-33=64 lifting him 10 spots to T3.

Rose came from eight back on the final day to win last week's WGC-HSBC Champions in China and he started round three in Turkey today a full nine shots behind pacesetter Nicolas Colsarts. He'll go into the final round at 12-under 201 and just two back from new leaders Shane Lowry and Kiradech Aphibarnrat. While Fleetwood is down in T27 and nine off the pace, Rose has his eyes on the trophy after firing another seven birdies today. He set the tone with a red number at the opening hole and added two more at 4 and 5. His big push came on Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort's back nine as the World No. 6 connected four birdies from Nos. 12-15. Since a double bogey on his second hole in round one, Rose has gone 52 holes without dropping a shot so he must rate as a huge dangerman in Sunday's closer.

After his brilliant come-from-behind win in the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, Justin Rose looks for another victory when he contests this week's Turkish Airlines Open.

That triumph elevated Rose to third on the Race To Dubai, impressive stuff given that he's taken part in just 10 events this term. That's 11 less than leader Tommy Fleetwood although he has a big gap to close (2,993,754 compared to 4,050,351) on his fellow Englishman. However, it's another big purse this week and Rose says he still has top spot in his crosshairs. This year's Masters runner-up has now reeled off five straight top 10s worldwide so is competitive every time he pegs it up. He's played this event just once but posted T3 at the Montgomerie Maxx in the inaugural edition of the event in 2013. That followed a win in the non-sanctioned Turkish Airlines Golf Final in 2012 when he beat Tiger Woods in the semis and Lee Westwood in the championship match. He'll have a new course to work out this week, Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, but Rose has only positive memories of Turkey and will still be on a high after coming from eight behind on the final day to win in China last week.
