Rose and Westwood set for final scrap
English duo Lee Westwood and Justin Rose will contest the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final in Antalya on Friday.
The pair have both ensured a guaranteed $1million pay-day for reaching the final by progressing through their groups before respective semi-final victories against Charl Schwartzel and Tiger Woods. Westwood followed up his morning 64 against Hunter Mahan with an impressive 61 to beat the former Masters champion Schwartzel by six shots, while Rose came from two shots behind at 12 to win, thanks largely to an eagle at the 14th. "It was just one of those days where I got on a roll and the hole started to look bigger and that's not happened for a while," said Westwood, who will hope to pick up the $1.5million winners' prize on Friday. "It was pretty special stuff. "I'm just pleased to be playing well and getting back in the swing of things after the Ryder Cup, with no hangover from that." It was a disappointing day for Northern Ireland's world number one Rory McIlroy, who had to settle for a $300,000 pay-out after finishing last in the eight-man exhibition having lost all of his group games.
