Justin Rose beat Lee Westwood in the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final to maintain his 100 per cent start to the competition.

The Hampshire player, who prevailed against Hunter Mahan in his opening group match yesterday, saw off compatriot Lee Westwood this morning by a score of 66 to 69.

Rose is one of eight players competing in the medal match play event in Antalya for a $1.5m payday.

With the rest of today's play washed out, the 32-year-old will return tomorrow to play his final group game, against Webb Simpson.

A victory would ensure that Rose qualifies for the semi-finals, which are due to be held in the afternoon. The final is set to take place on Friday.
