World number one Justin Rose described his victory as a “win-and-a-half” after carding a three-under-par 69 to beat Adam Scott by two shots at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego on Sunday.
The Englishman’s latest victory was his 10th on the PGA Tour, matching the tally of Spaniard Sergio Garcia and giving him one more than Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros.
Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy (14) is the only European player with more wins on the Tour since 1945.
“Double-digits sounds really cool. Winning is never easy,” Rose told Golf Channel. “When you’ve beat a class field on a great venue, that satisfies you as a player. It’s a win-and-a-half mentally.”
