Justin Rose: in the bag of the new World No.1 golfer

 

Justin Rose is back to World No.1 after successfully defending his Turkish Airlines Open title with victory over Haotong Li at the first extra hole.


 

Rose enjoyed a brief stay at world number one several weeks ago but now resumes the top spot following a 12th European Tour title.

The Englishman was handed things on a plate in Turkey as Li took three putts from seven feet in the playoff. Watch here.
