Stenson and Rose finish off the pace in Indonesia
Poom Saksansin racked up his fifth professional victory at the Indonesian Masters on Sunday, while Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose were off the pace.
The Thai star – who dropped just three shots all week – carded a four under 68 in the final round at Royale Jakarta Golf Club, enough for a three shot win over fellow countryman Jazz Janewattananond who was alone in second.

European Tour stalwart Stenson started the day incontention, three strokes behind Saksansin, but was unable to convert multiple birdie chances and would settle for a one under 71. The Swede would finish 14 under, alone in fourth and six off the pace.
Rose suffered a disastrous start, finding himself five over through five holes. The Englishman brought it back with birdies on the ninth and tenth, but a triple bogey eight would see him slide down the leaderboard.
The Olympic champions closing three over 75 would see him finish T17, two shots off the pace he needed to secure the world number one position again.
