Justin Rose Wins Congressional Cup in Play Off

BBC – England’s Justin Rose beat unheralded American Shawn Stefani in a play-off to clinch the Quicken Loans National.

Rose, 33, won his sixth PGA Tour title and first since last year’s US Openat the first extra hole, the 18th, where he found water in regulation play.

Stefani, ranked 246, was seeking his first PGA Tour win, but after tieing with Rose at four under, he caught the water in the play-off at Congressional.

The 32-year-old’s consolation was to qualify for July’s Open at Hoylake.

England’s Rose, who trailed overnight leader Patrick Reed by three shots, led by one going down the last but drove into the trees and hit his second into the greenside pond.

The world number 10 found the putting surface in four and holed a 15ft putt for bogey to card a round of 70 for four under.

Stefani bogeyed 17 to slip out of a share of the lead but parred the last for another 70 to join Rose. He ended with a double bogey on the 73rd hole as Rose made a safe par to close out the win.
