Justin Rose to return to world No. 1 after Turkish Open win

Justin Rose to return to world No. 1 after Turkish Open win

More than having the top ranking, the Englishman goes home with a trophy.

A dramatic play-off saw Rose miss a birdie putt before Li did the same and subsequently pushed his par attempt wide of the hole to hand his rival the crown.

If Rose needs any reassurance as he looks to successfully defend a title for the first time in his career, it is that he came from two strokes back a year ago to win by a shot.

But Rose had been in such fine and seemingly unflappable form for the first two days that when he went out with a two-shot lead at the Regnum Carya Course where he won past year, nobody expected these slip-ups, even if his 69 was far from disastrous.

"I'm sure we'll re-toast getting to number one and this time we have some silverware".

"The FedExCup was an interesting one because I knew exactly what I had to do and I was playing a tournament within a tournament". Rose shares second with Frenchman Alexander Levy on 14 under. I played well the whole week, but didn't hole a few putts on the last and that was it'.

If the latest reports are to believed, Priyanka and Nick will have two wedding ceremonies, honouring each other's faith.

The Shanghai-born Li then stood in complete surprise, and with both arms outstretched, when his 8-iron second shot from 173 yards out at the par-4 10th hole ran up the back upward portion of the green only to then roll back down the slope and into the cup. "Hopefully next time I can play better". It is all very well being a metronomic figure on the world's leaderboards - he has finished in the top ten in 11 of his past 13 tournaments and in 24 of his past 31 - but glory days...

The 38-year-old said the season was the best golf of his career "as a collective body of work".

"Just the consistency of it", he said.

"Nine was chip-in. Yesterday I did the same thing but I hit the flag, kicked out and today was just lucky, went in. It's going to be an exciting day tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to going up against Rosey".

The Turkish Airlines Open is part of the Rolex Series, the premium category of events on the European Tour's Race to Dubai. He would have to win to overtake British Open champion Francesco Molinari.

In a sport of deep fields, myriad winners and fried brains all round, Justin Rose's methodical excellence took him back to the top of the world rankings in Turkey. Brooks Koepka will have a chance to take it back in two weeks when he defends his title at the Dunlop Phoenix Open on the Japan Golf Tour.
