Justin Rose won the Indonesian Masters by eight shots courtesy of a final round 10-under-par at Royale Jakarta Golf Club on Sunday.

The Englishman, who went into the tournament as the form player having recently won the WGC-HSBC Champions and the Turkish Airlines Open, led throughout in Indonesia to make it a hat-trick of titles in the space of two months.

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.

Rose, who had to finish his third round on Sunday, was three shots clear of Zimbabwe's Scott Vincent at the start of his final round but never looked like being usurped at the top of the leaderboard.

The 37-year-old birdied the opening four holes and then fired an eagle at the ninth with his only blemish coming with a bogey at the 16th as he finished with a 62 and was 29-under-par for the tournament.

"That's my largest ever winning margin at a tournament," the world number six, Rose, said afterwards.

"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."

Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai was second, Vincent finished third and Yusaku Miyazato of Japan was fourth.

Rose is 4.50 to add to his solitary major title win from the 2013 US Open in 2018, while he is available at 67.00 to win the Race to Dubai after missing out to Tommy Fleetwood this year.
