Rose secures long-awaited victory at Australian Masters

Englishman Justin Rose captured his first European Tour victory in four years by winning the co-sanctioned MasterCard Australian Masters in Huntingdale.

Rose carded a final round one-over 73 to be 12-under overall, but he had to hold off a challenge from several Australians, including amateur Aaron Pike.

Rose, from Hampshire, also made a disastrous triple-bogey at the par-five seventh which threatened to derail his hopes, but the world number 69 showed true grit to bounce back and don the gold jacket the winner of the event receives.
