The Indonesian Masters looked as if it would be a Monday finish at one point on Saturday, but Justin Rose was able to play 30 holes on Sunday to runaway with an eight shot victory with a final round 62.

The Englishman was 10-under after 13 holes in the final round and looking like he could achieve a 59, but bogeyed the par-4 16th.

Rose, who led after all the first and later delayed rounds, had a 72-hole total of 29-under 259. Phachara Khongwatmai of Thailand (65) was second.

Zimbabwe’s Vincent finished third and Yusaku Miyazato of Japan fourth.

Rose is the hottest player in golf worldwide now with three wins in the last two months.

“That’s my largest ever winning margin at a tournament,” Rose told the media.

“To really do it at the end of the long season, to come here with my game in good shape and to deal with the jetlag, deal with the rain delays, to stay focused all four rounds, is something I’m very pleased about.”

Before the victory Rose was sixth in the World Golf Rankings.
