USPGA Tour: A Rosey Weekend for Justin

Contributed by Emma Booth.

The USPGA Tour came to an end last night in Miami, Florida, with Englishman Justin Rose claiming top spot over the gloriously named Bubba Watson and Irish sensation Rory McIlroy.

Starting the day 3 shots behind Watson, Justin Rose played some stupendous golf to overtake the American and finish 16 under par. With Watson choking at the 18th, missing a 10 foot birdie putt, and Tiger Woods pulling out injured. It was left to Rose and McIlroy to provide a late charge for the trophy. With McIlroy just falling short, Justin Rose, proving that experience counts for a lot, outshone the other contenders as he held his nerve, and claimed his 4th career PGA Tour win.

The top of the final leader board looked like this:

Rose (ENG) -16
Watson (USA) -15
McIlroy (NI) -14
Hanson (SWE) -13
Schwartzel (SA) -13
Donald (ENG) -12
Senden (AUS) -12
Bradley (USA) -11
Kuchar (USA) -11
Stricker (USA) -11
Van Pelt (USA) -11
