Justin Rose has reportedly emerged victorious at 2015 Zurich Classic. This win marked the 7th PGA tour triumph of his career.
Rose shot bogey-free six-under-par sixty six in the last round of the championship that led to a tournament-record twenty two-under total of two hundred and sixty six that made him 1 clear of Cameron Tringale (America)- who was in need of an eagle to force play-off yet could just manage 1 birdie at par-five eighteenth.
It marked the first success for the US Open 2013 champ who has not tasted victory since winning at 2014 Quicken Loans National. He holed the putts from ten & thirteen ft on last couple of holes to ensure his success.
The world # 9 has finally won the championship once at least in the past 6 years- the 2nd longest streak after Dustin Johnson’s 8 straight.
“On my route to course today, I was pondering, 2010, 11, 12, 2013, 14 & was trying to do something about it. 6 years constant isn’t easy & I am really proud & grateful of the stat”, remarked Rose.
Saturday’s proceedings were unfortunately curtailed by constant disruptions from bad weather and hence the next day the golfers started early to finish their 3rd rounds.
Rose made 6 birdies on a damp course in the last round & played the final sixty six holes sans a bogey.
He came up with a speedy start, joining Day (Jason) at top of leader board & finished with 7-under 65, staying 1 shot away from Blayne Barber & Daniel Berger.
2 consecutive birdies on 6th & 7th saw Blayne move into lead position as 4th round started. However, the US golfer fell out soon, bogeying the 9th & sealing date with dual bogey on 17th.
