Justin Rose shot 71 on Sunday to hold off a charging field and win the 2011 BMW Championship by two strokes. Sunday's round was technically Rose's worst, shooting one-over and nursing a one-stroke lead over John Senden heading into the 17th hole. A long chip-in for birdie gave him a two stroke lead going into 18, all but sealing the championship.
Rose shot a tournament high 63 on Thursday, before spending the rest of the weekend keeping his competitors at bay. A pair of Australians, Senden and Geoff Ogilvy, second and third on the leaderboard entering the final day, shot two-under Sunday to pull within striking distance, but couldn't fully close the gap on Rose who led after every round of the tournament.
Luke Donald made a big push late, shooting 68 to move up four spots in the tournament on the final day and finish fourth. Webb Simpson, the current FedEx Cup leader, finished fifth after shooting 71 on Sunday.
