Justin Rose birdied three of the final four holes to complete back-to-back European Tour wins with a one-shot victory at the Turkish Airlines Open.

The 37-year-old world number six, who came from eight shots back to win the WGC Champions last week, began the final day in Antalya two off the pace.

Level with Nicolas Colsaerts on the 18th tee, he sank a 10-foot birdie putt for a six-under 65 to finish 18 under.

Shane Lowry, joint leader overnight, finished five back after a 72.
