Justin Rose wins back-to-back for the first time, as Antalya hosts the fifth Turkish Airlines Open. Charles McLaughlin reports from the spectacular Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, hosting the event for the second time
It's appropriate that a key ingredient to classic Turkish delight is… the essence of Rose! Fresh off his stunning victory in Shanghai, where he came from eight shots back to win, Justin Rose came to Turkey hoping to bolster his belated charge in the Race To Dubai.
In the event, for the second week in a row, Rose found himself well off the pace - six shots back with nine to play on Sunday - but somehow managed to power through the field to win.
