Golf Australia Express : Issue 27
WHILE JUSTIN Rose drove away with the WGC-Cadillac Championship in style, Bubba Watson literally drove away his chance to win. Among all the thrills and spills of another dramatic Sunday at TPC Blue Monster at Doral, England’s Rose quietly went about the business of winning his fourth PGA title. The 31-year-old was unflappable down the stretch and although he erred with a bogey at the tough 18th, his final round 2-under 70 was good enough to take the event by a shot. And after securing his biggest career win, Rose told reporters he felt very comfortable with his game. “For this little beauty to show up on my mantle piece so early in the season, definitely a fantastic feeling, and you know, it sets up a very exciting year.” In contrast, big-hitting Watson was all over the shop. He didn’t hit one fairway on the front nine, scoring four bogeys on the way out. By the time he reached the 18th, Bubba needed to make an improbable birdie from the rough at the 18th to force a playoff with Rose. He very nearly did. His approach with a 4-iron to 10-feet was epic, only for his unpredictable putting to let him down at the final hurdle. World No.1 Rory McIlroy threw down the gauntlet in Round 4. Draining a boot-load of birdies and an eagle at the 12th threatened Rose, but bogeys at the 14th and 18th left the new leader of the FedEx Cup standings with a 5-under 67 and an outright third place. Rose banked a $1.4million and moved back inside the world’s top 10 to No.7.
