Justin Rose has every answer in winning Farmers Open at 21 under

Rose leads at 15-under

Justin Rose matched a 36-hole tournament record to take a three-shot lead at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego.

American Billy Horschel, who raced into contention with five birdies in the space of six holes on the front nine, saw his challenge fade with three bogeys on the back nine on the way to a four-under par 68. Not even a torrid finish by Scott, who has been rejuvenated by a new putting grip and a flagstick that is quickly becoming many pros' best friend, was enough to deny Rose his 10th PGA Tour victory. "I haven't won in January since about 2002, so this feels great", said the 2013 US Open champion.

Tiger Woods (67) tied for 20th at 10-under in his first start of the year. "I felt comfortable with the way I drove the ball this week on a tough test", added Rose.

"I scratched a line on my scorecard after six holes and said, 'All right, we build the round from this moment on, '" Rose said. "But you had to do it. Adam Scott got right there and played some great golf coming down the stretch". I won't look at the leaderboard.

He also missed a two-foot putt for par on the fifth.

This is Rose's first win since the Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour in November. "By the time I got it sorted out, it was a bit too late".

Quiros had an ugly end to his round, making double-bogey at the par-5 last after finding the water surrounding the green off his second shot, hitting his fourth shot into thick rough at the back of the green, and then duffing his chip.




Australia's Scott closed with four straight birdies in his four-under par 68 on the Torrey Pines South Course in La Jolla, California. He dropped his only shot of the day at the 12th but bounced back with a birdie from eight feet at the long 13th.

Defending champion Jason Day shot a final-round 67 to finish tied for fifth, alongside Rory McIlroy (69) and Jon Rahm (72).

"It was around June or July that I knew I'd be moving on from TaylorMade", Rose told TG. After shooting an eyebrow-raising 65 on Thursday on the easier North Course, the three-time major victor closed with three consecutive 72s on the South Course.

"He's the No. 1 player in the world, and he's showing why", Scott said.

Alejandro Sanchez, General Manager of HONMA Golf in Europe, commented: "We could not have wished for a better start to our relationship with Justin Rose on Tour or his performance with theTWorld 747 driver and Vizard shaft combination that's unique to HONMA".
