Dublin, OH – Justin Rose captured his first PGA Tour win on Sunday, closing with a flawless six-under 66 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament to overcome a four-shot deficit.

The 29-year-old Englishman finished with an 18-under 270 at Muirfield Village, beating third-round leader Rickie Fowler by three shots.

Fowler knocked his tee shot at the par-three 12th into the water and took a double-bogey, falling two shots behind. He shot a one-over 73 and finished second by himself at 15-under 273.

Bo Van Pelt (69) and Ricky Barnes (73) shared third place at 12-under 276, while Phil Mickelson (69) led a three-way tie at 11-under 277.

Mickelson could have overtaken Tiger Woods for the No. 1 world ranking with a victory and a little help from Woods, but it didn’t happen.

Back from a neck injury, Woods played all four rounds for the first time since the Masters. The four-time Memorial winner closed with a 72 and tied for 19th place at six-under 282 — 12 shots back in his final tune-up for the U.S. Open in two weeks.
