Justin Rose shot a final-round 3-under par 69 to claim victory at the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open.

Rose entered his final day at Torrey Pines with a three-shot advantage but things got a little shaky for the Englishman after carding three bogeys in his first five holes. The world No.1, though, settled down and finished his final 13 holes cleanly, while adding five birdies (Nos. 7, 9, 10, 16, and 18) en route to a 21-under par.
