Justin Rose was slow out of gate in round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational but roared back up the leaderboard to finish with a 3-under-par 31-38=69, good for an early spot inside the top 10.

The Englishman found water early in his round, leading to a triple-bogey 7 at the par-4 11th. He tacked on another bogey at the 15th to find himself in a 4-over hole, good for last place on the leaderboard at that time. Showing incredibly composure, he didn't pack up his bags but instead picked off birdies on seven of his next 10 holes. Five of those conversions came from outside 10 feet which helps explain how he walked off the course gaining 3.205 strokes with the putter. Rose has now been inside the top 20 after 19 of his last 21 rounds played at Bay Hill Club & Lodge.

World No. 5 Justin Rose labored to a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the Valspar Championship, falling three spots to T5 on 7-under 277, three adrift of champion Paul Casey, who shot a day- and week-tying-low 65.

After kicking off in 70-69-66, the 37-year-old began in a three-way T2, one short of leader Corey Conners. Playing out of the final twosome, he mustered one birdie at the par-5 first from 29 inches, outbalanced by back-to-back bogeys at 12 and 13. The Bahamas resident hit eight (of 13) fairways and conjured nine greens in regulation, gaining 0.644 strokes around-the-green but losing 1.828 approaching-the-green. He posted 1.889 putts per GIR and 0.414 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. Rose is now 9-for-10 at the Valspar with seven top 25s and three top 10s. He improves to 4-for-4 on the season with three top 25s, each doubling as top 10s, and two top 5s, joining his come-from-behind win at the HSBC Champions.

World No. 5 Justin Rose crafted a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the Valspar Championship to post 8-under 205, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T2 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Rose is T2, one back of leader Corey Conners, and will play out of the final twosome.

The 37-year-old mustered five (of 13) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.401 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.257 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 7, outpaced by four birdies at 4, 5, 12 and 15, adding a slam-dunk, hole-out 3 at the par-5 11th from 120 yards out. The Bahamas resident's split included four conversions from between 10 and 22 feet, posting 1.538 putts per GIR and 2.382 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. He's chasing his ninth PGA TOUR title in 309 events, second this season, joining the WGC-HSBC, where he came from eight back with 5-under 67 to win by two.

World No. 5 Justin Rose carded a 2-under-par 37-32=69 in the second round of the Valspar Championship to post 3-under 139, up one spot on the live leaderboard to T7, one back of a quintet of 36-hole clubhouse leaders and two back of the leader on the course Corey Conners.

This is the 37-year-old's 10th Valspar with six prior top 25s among eight cashes and two top 10s, including a best of T5 in 2011, where he was the 54-hole leader by one. (70-65-65-74). The Englishman conjured four (of 13) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation, gaining 0.543 strokes off-the-tee and 1.348 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 7, outpaced by three birdies at 11, 12 and 15, all from between nine and 40 feet. Rose posted 1.700 putts per GIR and 1.839 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. He kicked off with 1-under 70 (three birdies, two bogeys).
Mar 9 - 5:30 PM

Justin Rose will make just his third start of 2018 when he pegs it up in this week's WGC-Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec.

Aware that he went on a serious and extremely successful globetrot at the end of 2017, the Englishman has kept his schedule deliberately light so far. After closing out last year with three wins in five starts, he shook off some rust with T22 in Abu Dhabi and added an encouraging T8 at Torrey Pines. Trying to win The Masters after his near-miss in 2017 remains a priority for Rose but he won the most recent WGC, the HSBC Champions in China, and landed this one in 2012 when it was the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Florida. His T38 at this venue last year is a slight worry but he led the field in strokes gained: off-the-tee so the visuals aren't a problem. Knowing that he needs to perform better on the greens, Rose also had a lengthy session with his putting coach and seemed pleased with the results. Add in his win at the Olympics in Brazil in 2016, and he's perfectly capable of racking up another 'W' outside of his American base.
Feb 28 - 2:13 PM

World No. 6 Justin Rose backed up with a 2-over-par 38-36=74 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open, dropping three places to T8 on 6-under 282.

After opening in 69-70-69, the 37-year-old began T5 on 8-under, three back of 54-hole leader Alex Noren. He mustered four (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation, losing 1.571 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 2.543 around-the-green. The Englishman conjured two back-nine birdies, a 41-incher at the par-4 10th and a 59'9" bomb from the fringe at 18 for a walk-off 4, outbalanced by four squares at 3, 9, 12 and 16. He recorded a commercial 1.875 putts per GIR and -0.722 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. Rose is now 6-for-8 at the Farmers with four top 25s and two top 10s, two straight (T4/2017). He's 2-for-2 on the season with two top 10s (Win, WGC-HSBC), and has now connected six straight top 10s on TOUR dating to last season.

World No. 6 Justin Rose authored a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 8-under 208, up seven places on the live leaderboard to T7, one back of clubhouse leader J.B. Holmes and two shy of the leaders on the course Ryan Palmer and Alex Noren.

This is the 37-year-old's ninth Farmers with three prior top 25s and one top 10, a T4 last year where he was the 18- and 36-hole leader (65-71-73-70). He enters this week 1-for-1 on the season, coming from behind to win the WGC-HSBC back in October, and also finished T5 at the unofficial Hero World Challenge. Since that win at the HSBC, the Englishman also posted four worldwide top 10s, two of those victories, including two starts ago at the Indonesian Masters (Asian Tour) and checked in off T22 last week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC. After kicking off in 69-70, Rose began T14, six back of leader Palmer. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.816 strokes off-the-tee and 0.537 tee-to-green. The Bahamas resident circled three at holes 8, 9 and 18, posting 1.750 putts per GIR and 2.596 SG: Putting with 30 total putts.

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.

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.
