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."

Chad Collins didn't record a single event during the fall portion of the new season but will be playing out of the Web.com Tour graduate reshuffle when he returns to action in 2018.

Collins went just 10-for-26 last year on the PGA TOUR circuit, finishing 143rd in the FedExCup race. That wasn't enough to retain his TOUR card but he successfully turned that trick in the Web.com Tour Finals. It marks the fifth time that Collins has graduated from the Web.com Tour. That's a remarkable feat, but probably not one that Collins wants to keep testing. After earning his status, he failed to make a single start in the fall, with no reason cited for his absence at the moment. When Collins does return to action he will be playing out of the 48th spot in the graduate reshuffle, meaning starts will be tough to find.

Steve Marino has a lot of ground to make up when he returns to action on the PGA TOUR, playing with a Major Medical that requires 320.063 FedExCup Points in just 10 starts.

Marino finished 120th on the money list during the 2015-16 season to keep his TOUR status. Last year he lasted just 15 starts before injuries shut him down from May onward. He was just 5-for-15 before that, nothing landing inside the top 25. When he returns to action the five-time runner-up will need to post one of those top-heavy finishes to have a chance to fulfill the terms of this medical extension. Marino finished inside the top 75 in the FedExCup race in each of his first five seasons on TOUR but since then he's finished no better than 130th. There is always a chance for a career revival for this 37-year-old, but gamers should tread cautiously before re-investing.

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.

World No. 68 Wesley Bryan heads into the holidays ranked 121st in the FedExCup race, hopeful to continue his winning ways when the TOUR returns in January.

The 27-year-old went 19-for-28 during his rookie season to finish 41st in the FedExCup standings. That campaign featured five top 10s including a win at the RBC Heritage. In other years he would have been a strong candidate for Rookie of the Year honors but it was a very strong class he was competing with. His lack of RoY hardware shouldn't deter season-long gamers from investing in Bryan ahead of 2018. In 50 career starts across the Web.com Tour and PGA TOUR, he's racked up four wins (8 percent win rate). If he continues at that rate on the big stage he would go on to post a Hall of Fame career. It's easy to see why he wins so much as he's one of the best iron players and best putters in the world right now. His lone weakness is an extreme lack of distance off the tee, making him a great target for all of the shorter venues in 2018.

Seung-Yul Noh has played his last PGA TOUR event for quite some time as he headed off to serve his military duties following his appearance at The CJ CUP @ Nine Bridges.

In late November, the 26-year-old packed his bags and is beginning his two-year military commitment back in South Korea. Noh has been winding down in anticipation of this service, but he couldn't pass up a chance to play in his home country when a late WD opened up a spot for him. Similar to Sangmooon Bae, when Noh returns he will fall under the Major Mandatory Obligation category in terms of PGA TOUR status. Similar to a Major Medical, he will be given a large slate of starts to match the number of FedExCup Points needed to land inside the top 125 for that first season he missed. The 2014 Zurich Classic champion can be safely dropped in all fantasy circles.

Colt Knost went 1-for-3 during the wraparound fall portion of the schedule, still shaking off the cobwebs after returning from injury.

The SMU product was forced to shut down early last season, lasting just five starts before a wrist injury kicked in. Now, he's playing the 2017-18 season on a Major Medical, needing 356.577 FedExCup Points over his next 20 starts to maintain status. His injury came at an inopportune time as he was coming in fresh off a career year, earning $1.59 million during the 2015-16 season, nearly 40 percent of his career total. The 32-year-old has never relied on distance so a wrist injury shouldn't affect him near as much as it would for some. Once he gets locked back in with his wedges and putter he should be back to his old ways of piling up top 30s.

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.
