2019 Farmers Insurance Open leaderboard

2019 Farmers Insurance Open report

Justin Rose closed out the victory despite a torrid opening five holes which he played in two-over-par.

Thankfully for the World No. 1, his nearest challengers, Jon Rahm and Adam Scott, were unable to gain any momentum of their own on the front nine.

After making the turn at 18-under, Rose kicked on and proved he is still worthy of standing at the summit of the world game.

In a week where Tiger Woods, perhaps the greatest clutch putter of all, began his 2019 campaign, Rose holed his fair share of putts to save par.

A total of six birdies on Sunday was enough to create a two-shot gap between Rose and Scott, who clinched second place with birdies on each of the final four holes.

Talor Gooch carded an impressive final-round of 68 to carry on his good form following this fourth placed finish last week. One of the highlights was a tidy birdie at 16.

There was also a welcome return to the top portion of the leaderboard for Hideki Matsuyama, who hit an outrageous five-wood from a fairway bunker on 18 to set up a chance for eagle.

He wasn’t able to convert the putt but did finish in a tie for third with Gooch.
