Justin Rose wins 2017 Turkish Airlines Open for Back to Back Titles

Justin Rose made a 10-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the Turkish Airlines Open in Antalya, Turkey, by a shot on Sunday for his second straight title on the 2017 European Tour, moving him close to fellow Englishman Tommy Fleetwood in the Race to Dubai standings. Rose shot a 6-under 65 in the final round to finish on 18 under par 266 overall, securing victory a week after taking the WGC-HSBC Champions title in Shanghai. Nicolas Colsaerts had the chance to take Rose to a playoff but rolled his birdie putt on the 18th just left of the hole, moments after Rose had holed from two feet further out. Colsaerts had birdied Nos. 15, 16 and 17. Colsaerts (66) and Dylan Frittelli (64), who chipped in three times in four holes during his round, were tied for second. Padraig Harrington needed to eagle the last to force a playoff, but made par and had to settle for fourth place on...

The tournament was decided on the final hole, where Rose pulled clear with a closing birdie leaving him a shot ahead of Nicolas Colsaerts and Dylan Frittelli at 18 under par at the Regnum Carya Golf and Spa Resort for his second win in two weeks. Rose, who won the 2012 Turkish Airlines World Final and last week’s WGC-HSBC Champions, said: “It’s incredibly sweet. It’s like a bus.
