Rose into final in Turkey
3:38pm Thursday 11th October 2012 in Sport
JUSTIN Rose is guaranteed at least a $1m payday after reaching the last two of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final.
The Hampshire player beat Tiger Woods in the semi-final this afternoon, in Antalya, and will now face compatriot Lee Westwood for the title tomorrow.
The winner will receive $1.5m in prize money, while the runner-up will get $1m.
Rose has enjoyed a 100 per cent record in the tournament so far, winning all three of his group games.
After beating Hunter Mahan and Westwood in his opening matches, he saw off Webb Simpson this morning.
That set-up a clash with Woods in the knockout stages, with Rose edging a tense affair.
His score of two-under-par was enough to beat the world number two by a single shot in the medal match play format.
Rose trailed for much of the round, but played the last six holes in four-under to turn the contest on its head.
In the other semi-final, Westwood was in devastating form, shooting ten-under to see off Charl Schwartzel (-4), who had won all three of his group matches.
When they met in the pool stages on Wednesday, Rose beat Westwood by three shots.
