VIDEO: World No. 1 Justin Rose Wins Farmers Insurance Open

JUSTIN ROSE SURVIVED A LATE CHARGE by Adam Scott to win the Farmers Insurance Open by two strokes. It was the 10th title on the PGA Tour for Rose, the world's top-ranked golfer.

The Englishman birdied two of the final three holes to card a 69 in the final round and post a 21-under total for the tournament. Scott birdied the last four holes for a 68 and finished at 19 under.

There were shaky moments early on for the leader.

"Definitely there were times in my career where I've had decent-sized leads and you start to throw it away a little bit and you panic," Rose said. "I just knew I couldn't do that today. I stayed calm, I stayed with it."

Rose also said: "I love winning on great tests of golf and this one will give some special feelings because of that."

In Dubai Bryson DeChambeau fired a closing 64 to win the Omega Dubai Desert Classic by seven shots. It was Dechambeau's first victory on the European Tour.
