Rose putt falls agonisingly short in Dubai

England's Justin Rose has gone agonisingly close to sinking in incredible putt, with a monster effort coming to rest on the lip of the 18th hole at the Jumeirah Golf Estates course in Dubai.

Standing over the ball on the final hole of his closing round at the DP World Tour Championship, Rose faced a 30 metre putt across an undulating green with a step running across his path, roughly halfway to the hole. The green sloped sharply down from the step and Rose had to caress the ball just over the rise or risk it running way past the hole.

In customary silence Rose played his shot and it appeared as though he had left it well short as it threatened to stop at the top of the step. But as the crowd egged it on, it regathered momentum down the slope.

With commentators and fans growing in their enthusiasm the ball stopped half a roll away from dropping. Rose was able to tap in for a birdie four to set a course record score of 62 for the round.

Despite his brilliant finish, Rose was beaten to the trophy by two shots, with champion Rory McIlroy ending his closing round with five-straight birdies.
