Rose climbs to world number 51

Justin Rose claimed his first win in four years with victory in the MasterCard Masters at Huntingdale Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.

A battling final round 73, in which he had to hold off a challenge from a throng of Australians, gave Rose a 12 under-par total of 276 and a two stroke margin of victory, and moves him up to 51st on the Official World Golf Ranking, an improvement of 18 positions.

Jeev Milkha Singh continued his remarkable run of form with a two-stroke win at the Casio World Open on the Japan Golf Tour, giving him his second win in a month and his third of 2006. The Indian player moves up 8 places in the Official World Golf Ranking to 55th.

Singh's rise up the ranking has been meteoric, as he began 2006 as world number 376.

Both players will now be seeking further improvement to try and break into the top 50, which brings an automatic invitation to the US Masters at Augusta in April.
