Justin Rose wins the Forth Worth Invitational in style
With comfortable 3 shot victory
Justin Rose won his ninth PGA Tour title with a comfortable three-shot victory at the Fort Worth Invitational.
Rose closed out the tournament with a six under par 64 to finish on 20 under, and three shots clear of Brooks Koepka.
"I'm delighted the way I played this week," Rose said.
"The way I hit the ball this week... I'm a little speechless.
This is something for me to build on. This week was a big step in the right direction.”
"There's still more work to be done. It's going to be about conserving that energy into the US Open.”
Rose started quickly with birdies at the first and second. He dropped a shot on the third, but bounced right back with birdies on the fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth to make the turn in 30.
Further birdies on the 11th and 15th, and the job was nearly done. He could comfortably afford a second bogey with a five on par four 18th for a back nine 34, and a final round 64.
Rose will move to No 3 in the World Rankings, and will have the chance to go to No 1 at next week’s Memorial.
Thomas Bjorn will be more than aware of Rose’s Fort Worth performance, and Molinari’s return to the winners’ podium at Wentworth. Things are shaping up more than nicely for the Ryder Cup…..
