ENGLAND’S JUSTIN ROSE has secured back-to-back victories for the first time in his career in winning the Turkish Airlines Open at Antalya on Sunday.

Rose held off a strong challenge from Padraig Harrington, who finished two shots back on -16 after a four under par final round.

The Dubliner hit four birdies and an eagle in an impressive final round, but ultimately a pair of bogeys denied him a play-off against Rose.

Shane Lowry finished tied for eighth after an underwhelming +1 final round.

Rose holed a 10-foot birdie putt at the final hole for a six-under par 65 to win by a stroke with an 18-under par tally on the Regnum Carya course.
