Rose was two down to Brea, Calif., native Chirs Heintz through seven holes before recording birdies at Nos. 8 and 9 to square the match. After losing the 10th hole with a bogey, Rose birdied the par-5 12th to square the match and built a two-hole advantage with two holes remaining before hanging on for a 1-up victory.
