BELEK, Turkey (AP) — Justin Rose beat Tiger Woods by one stroke Thursday to set up a World Golf Final against Ryder Cup teammate Lee Westwood.

Rose holed a sand wedge shot for an eagle at the par-4 14th, part of a round of 69 to beat Woods' 1-under 70.

Westwood set a new course record with a 10-under 61 to beat South Africa's Charl Schwartzel by six shots. Westwood had two eagles and eight birdies, including a 50-footer at the last hole on the Sultan Course at the Antalya Club.

The two Englishmen will meet Saturday, with a $1.5 million check for the winner and $1 million for the runner-up.
