Justin Rose Shoots 62, Wins Indonesian Masters

Justin Rose fired a final round 10-under 62 to capture the Indonesian Masters at a soggy Royale Jakarta Golf Club. Weather delays over the weekend forced Rose to wrap up his third round on Sunday morning, eventually signing for a 6-under 66.

Starting his final round with a 3-shot lead, Rose strung together four birdies and an eagle on hole Nos. 5-9 to turn at 29.

Three more birdies on 10, 12, and 13 got Rose to 10 under, but the Englishman went even par over his final five holes to sign for a 62 and a four-round total of 29-under 259.

“I had a dream week and I have played incredible golf,” said Rose, who finished the year with 10-straight top 10s.

“It is my last event of the season, to finish the year on a good note and still have a couple of weeks to enjoy this win over Christmas and new year is really nice.

“It is my lowest winning score and to win by eight shots, all of those are huge positives.”

The win was Rose’s third of 2017, all of which have come in his last six starts.

Phachara Khongwatmai of Thailand shot a final-round 65 to finish solo second at 21-under 267. One further back was Zimbabwe’s Scott Vincent who finished 19-under 269.
