Rose beats Woods, faces Westwood in final

England's Justin Rose produced a Tiger Woods like shot to defeat the 14-time Major winning American and set up a showdown with compatriot Lee Westwood in the World Golf final on Thursday.

The World No. 5-ranked Rose was trailing in his semi-final tie against Woods until holing an improbable 110-yard wedge shot at the par four, 14th hole for an eagle.

An embarrassed Rose then tried to cover his face with his cap en route to a round of two under par 69 to defeat Woods who signed for a 70.

"When Justin birdied 13 and holed out at 14 it was the turning point in the match," said Woods.

"I was two up at the time and all of a sudden one down with four holes to play.

"But I haven't played this format since the Dunhill Cup in '98 so it's been a while, and it's a neat format as it's never over until it's done.

"There can be some big-time swings out there, as we saw with Justin at 14, but then it was a long day."

After having dealt with Woods, Rose now heads to the final "hungry" to finish in front of Westwood, his European Ryder Cup winning team mate.

"I was really struggling early on today and to can that shot at 14 was easily the turning point," reflected Rose.

"In proper match-play you would only win the hole but in this format I've picked up two shots on Tiger and it's helped me win the match.
