Justin Rose

Justin Rose announced himself to the golfing world when, as a 17 year old amateur he pitched in at the last hole in the 1998 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale G.C., a shot that claimed him 4th place. With that shot Justin captured the imagination of the British public and the rest of the golfing world. In the 13 years following the dramatic scenes at Birkdale, Justin has proven himself as one of the world s leading golfers, winning the European Tour Order of Merit in 2007 and reaching No.6 in the World in 2008. He was also the best performing rookie of both teams in the 2008 Ryder Cup. 2011 was another exceptional year with a further victory for Justin on the PGA Tour at the BMW Championship. He backed this up with ten top 15 finishes both on the European and PGA Tours, which included 3rd place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and 5th at the Transitions Championships. He rounded 2011 off by coming 2nd in the World Cup in China. In 2012, Justin has propelled himself back into the World s top 10 following his biggest win to date at the WGC Cadillac Championship. This win makes Justin one of just 4 British players to have won 4 events or more on the PGA Tour, and made him a vital member of victorious European Ryder Cup team. Justin also had another impressive run at the Masters in April where he finished in 8th place.
