AP – England’s Justin Rose birdied the final two holes on Sunday to win the US PGA Tour’s Zurich Classic in New Orleans with a tournament-record 22-under par.
Australian Jason Day, who led after the rain-affected second round and also following the third round which was completed earlier on the final day, carded a last-round 69 to finish in a tie for fourth.
Rose beat home American Cameron Triangle (65) by one shot with Boo Weekley (65) another stroke behind and Jim Herman (65) tied with Day at 19-under.
Rose completed a seven-under 65 in the rain-delayed third round and closed with a 66 at TPC Louisiana for his seventh PGA Tour title.
The Englishman has won at least once in six straight seasons, the second-longest streak on the tour behind Dustin Johnson’s eight straight.
Playing aggressively on a soggy course, Rose made six birdies in the final round and played the last 66 holes without a bogey.
