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. Nov 17 - 7:55 AM

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.
Nov 14 - 11:23 AM

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.
Nov 5 - 10:14 AM

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.
Nov 4 - 10:52 AM

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.
Oct 31 - 5:49 AM

Justin Rose completed a sensational victory in the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC; his final round 5-under-par 36-31=67 good to set a target of 14-under 274 which the stumbling pre-round leader Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Henrik Stenson (all T2) could not match. UPDATE: Rose jumps seven spots to 6th in OWGR.

Rose trailed by eight heading into Sunday and although Johnson dropped two shots on the front nine, Rose contrived to make the turn in level-par, circling 2, 3 and 7, but squaring 6, 8 and 9; apparently his race was run. The contrast on the back nine, however, was absolute. Johnson's woes continued with three more mistakes, Koepka fell out the chase with a double bogey, Stenson erred at 17, but Rose first hunted and then escaped the leader. He converted birdie putts at 11 from 6'0" and at 13 from 12'0", he added two more at the par-5 14th and short par-4 16th, and the killer blow was a tee shot at the 212-yard par-3 17th to kick-in range. So complete was his overhaul of the leaderboard that he played the last with a two shot advantage and completed a safe par. It is his first victory since Olympic gold and he joins close friend Ian Poulter as the only Brits to own two WGC titles. "Unbelievable," he gasped. "Left it late this year." In more ways than one.
Oct 29 - 4:29 AM

Justin Rose was frustrated to only shoot level-par 37-35=72 in round three of the WGC-HSBC Champions; he heads into the final round T4 on 9-under 207, eight shots back of leader Dustin Johnson.

"Wasn't good enough," he said afterwards, apparently not mincing his words, but then suggesting there were mitigating circumstances. "Not an easy day and a couple of breaks, the difference between a good and bad day, didn't go my way. Momentum didn't slipped away." He had opened with five pars and a red number at No. 2, but went bogey-par-bogey right before the turn. Another dropped shot at the 16th was partially atoned by circling 13 and 18. He will be looking to post a career best at Sheshan International GC, bettering his T5 and T7 in 2013 and 2011. He closed those efforts out with rounds of 68 and 66 so he knows he has it in him to go low at the Shanghai track.
Oct 28 - 5:19 AM

Justin Rose pieced together a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in round two of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, nudging three spots up the leaderboard to T3 at the halfway mark.

That's another good day for Rose after he opened with 67 in round one and 9-under 135 through 36 holes puts him in the hunt for the trophy this weekend. However, there are a couple of caveats. After starting the day three back, he's now four off the pace after World No. 1 Dustin Johnson shot a stunning 63 to surge into the lead. And, the Englishman will be kicking himself about the two-hole swing at the last. While DJ birdied, Rose swallowed a bogey-6. Prior to that he'd birdied the other par 5s at 2, 8 and 14 and also ticked 9, 11 and 16. His other dropped shot today came at the 12th. "Played well again," said Rose, who is ranked third for greens in regulation (83.3%) after two rounds. "Kept some momentum going. First tournament in a month or so, so to back up a good start with another good round is good."
Oct 27 - 4:47 AM

Justin Rose took advantage of some accurate driving to post a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in round one of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, good enough for T6 on the leaderboard.

The Englishman is just three back from leader Brooks Koepka after six birdies against a lone bogey at Sheshan International today. Rose has made the top seven in two of his three starts in this event and ended the 2016/17 PGA TOUR season with three T10s and a second place during the Playoffs. A popular pick, the 2013 U.S. Open champ started out with a birdie at 10 although immediately gave it back at the next. A two at the 12th got him under par again before he settled with five pars. Then came his big burst of scoring as Rose connected four birdies from No. 18 through to No. 3. He had more chances coming in but five closing pars finished off a fine day's work. His tally of 12 fairways (85.7%) was only bettered by one player while the Ryder Cup star also hit 13 greens in regulation and took 29 putts.
Oct 26 - 6:37 AM

World No. 14 Justin Rose carved out a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to wrap on 6-under 274, six short of champion Xander Schauffele, down one place on the day to T10 and falling one spot to 9th in the FedExCup standings.

This was the 37-year-old's eighth appearance and fifth top 10, fifth consecutive. He was one of three players this year (Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm) to post top 10s in all four Playoffs events (T10-T10-T2-T10). After opening in 68-66-71, the Englishman began T9 on 5-under, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Paul Casey. He found eight (of 14) fairways, No. 1 for the week in that stat at 67.86% (38/56) and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.518 strokes around-the-green and 2.000 tee-to-green. Rose squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 1, offset by two, two-putt birdie-4s at 6 and 18, posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR and -1.167 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts. This was his eighth top 10 of the season in 18 starts, three of those runners-up, and his 12th top 10 in 36 Playoffs events.
Sep 24 - 8:18 PM

World No. 14 Justin Rose stumbled to a 1-over-par 35-36=71 on Day 3 of the TOUR Championship, falling five places to T9 on 5-under 205, seven back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

After kicking off in 68-66, the 37-year-old began T4 on 6-under, one shy of a trio of overnight co-leaders. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.485 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.811 around-the-green. The Englishman carded five birdies at holes 5, 8, 12, 13 and 18, two from between 15 and 31 feet, overshadowed by six squares at 1 (3-putt from 49'8"), 9-11, 14 and 17. He posted 1.727 putts per GIR and -2.038 SG: Putting, needing 29 total putts. Rose whiffed three putts from inside of five feet.
Sep 23 - 7:19 PM

Justin Rose rattled off 12 fairways hit en route to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the second round of the TOUR Championship, reaching 6-under 134 at the midpoint which is good for an early share of the clubhouse lead alongside Patrick Reed. UPDATE: Rose would later get passed up by a trio of golfers.

The Englishman was in attack mode all day as he gave himself eight scoring chances from the 10-to-15 foot range, converting on three of them. He also sank an easy 4'4" birdie at the par-3 second and holed out from 20 feet for birdie at the par-4 fifth. By day's end, he was gaining 1.935 strokes off-the-tee and 0.813 strokes approaching-the-green. Success at East Lake is nothing new for Rose who arrived with four straight finishes of solo sixth or better at this event, with two of them being runner-up finishes. Starting the week at 8th in the FedExCup race, he doesn't control his own destiny in regards to winning the FedExCup title, but that won't stop him from trying.
Sep 22 - 5:09 PM

Past champ and World No. 15 Justin Rose styled a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the BMW Championship to reach 18-under 266, up two spots to T2, five back of wire-to-wire winner Marc Leishman, and jumps nine places to 8th in the FedExCup standings.

The 2011 winner began the finale five shy, was six back at the turn, but climbed within two of Leishman with birdies at 10, 12 and 13. He stalled out from there however, playing his final five holes in even-par and failing to birdie either of the back-nine par 5s after driving into fairway bunkers. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the Englishman circled seven against a lone (and costly) bogey-4 at 17 (failed scramble), his first blemish in 54 holes. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.393 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. This is Rose's fourth runner-up in the Playoffs joining his above-mentioned win at Cog Hill. It's his third straight top 10 this postseason, chasing a pair of T10s in the first two legs.
Sep 17 - 6:59 PM

Past champ and World No. 15 Justin Rose hung up a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the BMW Championship to reach 12-under 201, carding just the third blemish-free lap of the day and climbing eight spots to solo 4th, seven back of 54-hole leader Marc Leishman.

The 2011 winner (Cog Hill G&CC) is bogey-free over his last 37 holes and is T1 at the midpoint in total bogeys with only two. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.084 strokes approaching-the-green, 1.202 around-the-green, and 3.033 tee-to-green. The 37-year-old circled five at holes 6, 8, 9, 15 and 18, all from inside of 12 feet, posting 1.643 putts per GIR and 0.387 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. He's projected at 12th in the FedExCup standings and is chasing his eighth TOUR title in 304 career events, first since the 2015 Zurich Classic, and will play out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday.
