JUSTIN ROSE

Justin Rose clinched his seventh PGA Tour title at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a birdie-birdie finish enough to win by one shot from Cameron Tringale.


The 34-year-old recorded just one bogey all week on his way to a tournament record 22-under par score and has now won at least one PGA Tour event for the sixth consecutive season, the second longest streak behind Dustin Johnson.

With rain, fog and darkness threatening to curtail proceedings at TPC Louisiana throughout the week, Rose kept his cool with a final round of 66 and had to hang around for 45 minutes while the later groups finished up.
"To win the golf tournament has just made it such a fun week" - Justin Rose

“This is a tournament that's very special to me in the sense that I'm an ambassador for Zurich and I've been here a number of years,” Justin Rose said. “I've always enjoyed my time here, win, lose or draw, but to get on the right side of things and win the golf tournament has just made it such a fun week.”

Rose also posted on Instagram with his trophy:

The 2013 US Open champion’s win comes just two weeks after his runner-up finish at the Masters, and after a poor run of form in 2015 in the lead up to Augusta, Rose is delighted to have turned his fortunes around.

“There's a couple of things I'm really proud of,” Rose said. “Obviously that's six straight years with a win. Earlier this year it looked impossible to win. I was struggling with my game, and when you are struggling with your game, sometimes winning seems very far off.

“So I'm very happy to have turned my game around the last three or four weeks. I think as a player to make the putt exactly when you need to is huge and I don't think I've made a putt to win a PGA Tour event outright like that before.”

The win moves Rose up to No.6 in the world, with leader after the third round, Jason Day, dropping down to No.7 after finishing T4 and Johnson dropping to No.8 after finishing T43.
