Justin Rose came of age when finishing fourth at Royal Birkdale in the 1998 Open Championship; he returns to the Lancashire links this week looking to land a second major.
Amazingly, given all he's achieved in the game, that top four as a 17-year-old amateur remains his best Open finish in 15 starts in the tournament. The 36-year-old went closest to beating that mark when T6 at St. Andrews in 2015 while either side he cracked the top 25 at Hoylake in 2014 and again at Royal Troon last year. Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open winner, went desperately close to adding a second major title when losing out in a play-off to Sergio Garcia at the Masters in April while he warmed up for this week's links test with T4 in the Irish Open two weeks ago. Rose will have Louis Oosthuizen and Justin Thomas for company over the first two rounds, the trio heading out Thursday at 14:59 local. Jul 18 - 9:22 AM

Justin Rose will be looking to add to the list of home winners of the BMW PGA Championship when he heads to the West Course at Wentworth this week.

Englishmen from the south of the country have an exceptionally strong record in this event over the last 11 years (five wins, six times runner-up) and yet Rose remains one of the bridesmaids, rather then the bride. He came closest to victory when losing a play-off to Anders Hansen exactly ten years ago. He was also tied second, four strokes back of Luke Donald, in 2012. His record pre-the big course changes of 2010 was slightly better than since so the reversion to a less American-style West Course might suit him and although he’ll be concerned he left TPC Sawgrass having signed for a final round 80, he’s more likely to focus on the second placed spot at Augusta National.

Vying for a second major title in 52 major appearances (2013 U.S. Open), overnight co-leader and World No. 14 Justin Rose authored a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of the 81st Masters to match 54-hole co-leader Sergio Garcia on 9-under 279, and then lost on the first hole of sudden death, the par-4 18th.

After opening in 71-72-67, the 36-year-old co-led with Garcia, one clear of Rickie Fowler. He opened with four pars and bogey-5, falling three behind Garcia, but fought back with three straight birdies at 6-8. The Englishman went two ahead with pars at 10 and 11, halved the par-5 13th with par, and dipped to one clear after Garcia birdied 14. Rose circled the par-5 15th, but was tied by Garcia's eagle-3. He seemed to take control at the par-3 16th, curling in an 8-footer for birdie, while Garcia missed his from about the same distance, but opened the door with bogey at 17 (failed sand save), missing the par-saver from 7'0". After both players missed makeable birdie tries on the 72nd hole, Rose's errant tee shot on the first playoff hole led to bogey, while Garcia rolled in birdie from 12'0". This was Rose's 12th Masters and second runner-up (2015), and his 11th runner-up in 295 career starts, second this season in eight events (2nd, Sony Open).
Apr 9 - 8:30 PM

World No. 14 Justin Rose twirled a 5-under-par 36-31=67 in the third round of the 2017 Masters to post 6-under 210, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and the low round of the day. UPDATE: With play completed, Rose's 67 was the low lap and he shares the lead with Sergio Garcia.

After opening his 12th Masters in 71-72, the 36-year-old began in a four-way T6, three shy of four co-leaders. He exchanged birdies at Nos. 3 and 8 with bogeys at 2 and 8 to turn even, and then came to the house in blemish-free 5-under, including a birdie-birdie finish. The Olympic gold-medalist found eight (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, posting his best putting average of the week thus far with 1.61 putts per hole. His bogey-6 at 2 was the result of an errant tee shot (and penalty stroke), and failed to get up-and-down at the par-3 sixth. The Englishman's split included a 23-footer for birdie-3 at three, a 19-footer for birdie-3 at 17, and a walk off from 11 feet. This is his 52nd major appearance and is vying for his second major title (2013 U.S. Open at Merion GC).
Apr 8 - 6:29 PM

Justin Rose recorded a ho-hum even-par 35-37=72 during round two of the 81st Masters Tournament, arriving at the weekend on 1-under 143, three strokes off the pacesetters at the top.

The Englishman split 10 (of 14) fairways today and parlayed that into 12 greens in regulation. From there his short game struggled to score, sinking just one putt from outside seven feet. Rose took 31 swipes with the flat stick for a second straight day. Finding his name near the top of the leaderboard at Augusta National is nothing new, posting seven straight top 25s at the Masters heading into this week. Rose is in great position again through 36 holes and could really throw his name into the mix if he catches fire with the putter.
Apr 7 - 8:03 PM

Justin Rose transmitted a 1-under-par 34-37=71 during the opening round of the 81st Masters Tournament, positioning himself inside the top 10 early on in the week.

The 2016 Olympic gold medalist started his week with just 7-of-14 fairways hit but recovered nicely to still land 14 greens in regulation. While his approach play was the key to scoring, his putter did not want to cooperate at times, recording a pair of three-putts throughout the round, taking 31 swipes with the flat stick by day's end. The reliable Englishman arrived with top 40s in all 11 visits to Augusta National. He's on pace for another one this week, but he'll need to tidy up the putting if he wants to truly contend come Sunday.
Apr 6 - 5:21 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 13 Justin Rose conjured up a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open to post 6-under 138, down four places to T10, 10 shy of clubhouse leader Sung Kang.

The 36-year-old got on the board with birdie-3 at 11 from 27'7", gave one back at the 17th and then doubled the par-4 18th after hitting his second into the water to turn 2-over. He rebounded with birdie-3 at 3 (7'7") went back-to-back with a 5-footer for birdie at the par-4 fifth to level the card, and then banged home a 47'8" bomb for a walk-off 2 at the par-3 ninth. The Englishman had identical fairways and greens numbers in R2 as to R1, nine and 13, but lost 1.839 strokes approaching the green. He salvaged the round with 1.043 SG: Around-the-Green and 0.901 SG: Putting.
Mar 31 - 2:33 PM

Justin Rose smoothed a 5-under-par 35-32=67 during the first round of the Shell Houston Open, placing himself three strokes off the early pacesetter Rickie Fowler.

The Englishman grinded on his outward nine, finding water at the par 5 fourth hole which led to a bogey, circling just a pair of bogeys to offset that bogey. After the turn, the fireworks started as he rattled off a four-hole birdie train starting at the par-4 10th and added a fifth birdie at the par-5 15th. Only one of those birdie putts was converted from outside seven feet. Playing his 13th round at the Golf Club of Houston, this goes in the books as a new personal best for Rose, eclipsing the 4-under 68 fired in R2 of the 2015 edition and R1 of the 2009 edition.
Mar 30 - 7:19 PM

Justin Rose will make a fifth start in the Shell Houston Open this year, as he sharpens his game ahead of next week's quest for a second major championship title.

The Englishman has never quite sussed this tournament. Back in 2004 he missed the cut on the Member course and on this week's track he pegged T52-T14 in 2009-10, then T37 12 months ago. His inability to go low has been at fault, as consistency is no problem (he's yet to better 68). If that is likely to steer gamers away this week, his seasonal form has been solid enough to warrant a question mark about writing him off. Six starts into 2017 he is yet to miss a cut, and has four times finished T13 or better. If hoping for 2013 U.S. Open champion to contend beware his state record: T2 in the Texas Open back in 2006, he has otherwise failed to break the top ten in his 13 visits.
Mar 28 - 6:04 AM

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 12 Justin Rose crafted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the Genesis Open to reach 11-under 273, up two spots to T3, one back of clubhouse leader Thomas Pieters but eight back of the leader on the course Dustin Johnson.

This was the 36-year-old's 11th appearance and second top 10, joining a T9 in 2011. After kicking off in 69-71-65, he began the final round in a four-way T5 on 8-under, nine back of Johnson. The Englishman landed seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.583 putts per GIR but -0.257 SG: Putting. He circled the par-4 10th and then holed out from 194 yards at the 12th for eagle-2. Rose got so excited, he gave both shots back with bogey-5s at 13 and 15, before birdieing the par-3 16th. After the break, he outpaced bogey-4 at 4 with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 first and birdie-3 at 7. All four of Rose's birdies were from inside of six feet, but good enough for a third top 10 of the season in four starts, and possibly a third top 5.
Feb 19 - 7:08 PM

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 12 Justin Rose navigated the two-day third round of the Genesis Open in 6-under-par 30-35=65 for a 54-hole total of 8-under 205, up 34 places to T6 with play still in progress.

After opening in 69-71, the 36-year-old began R3 (on Saturday) T40 on 2-under, eight back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson. He kicked off with back-to-back birdies on 10 and 11, from 12 feet and 9'6", respectively, and remained 2-under thru four holes when play was suspended (darkness). The Olympic gold medalist returned on Sunday morning to add birdie-2 at 16 (from 11'4") before squaring consecutive bogeys at 17 and 18 (failed scrambles). He got them both back splashing home eagle-3 at 1 from 42'11" and then circled 6, 8 and 9 from between seven and 27 feet. Rose hit 11 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.364 putts per GIR and 4.969 SG: Putting.
Feb 19 - 1:32 PM

Justin Rose has plenty of course knowledge at Riviera Country Club and will look to put that knowledge to good use at this week's Genesis Open.

The Englishman will be making his 11th appearance at this event. He finished outside the top 30 in each of his first six visits but since then he's finished T16 or better in 3-of-4. On paper, it would appear that Rose has finally figured out the proper gameplan for the typically-difficult Riviera CC. Form is not an issue for the Englishman, either, as his early 2017 results have yielded a runner-up finish (Sony Open) and T4 (Farmers Insurance Open) prior to last week's T39 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Gamers should feel comfortable using Rose in all formats.
Feb 15 - 10:18 AM

First- and second-round leader Justin Rose handed in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 after the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a four-day total of 9-under 279, up one spot into a five-way T4, four in arrears to champion Jon Rahm, who shot 65.

After kicking off his eighth appearance in 65-71, the World No. 13 held a 1-shot lead after each of the first two rounds. A third-round 73 dropped him back into an eight-way T5, two shy of 54-hole co-leaders Patrick Rodgers and Brandt Snedeker. Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.806 strokes tee-to-green. He outpaced a pair of bogey-5s with four birdies, but posted a pedestrian 1.857 putts per GIR and -1.039 SG: Putting. This was the Englishman's 12th career 36-hole lead/co-lead, first since the 2013 Arnold Palmer, and drops to 2-for-12 in that regard, last converting at the 2011 BMW Championship. On a positive note, it's his first top 10 at the FIO (T22/2010), and second top 5 of the season in two starts, joining solo 2nd at the Sony Open.
Jan 29 - 7:33 PM

18- and 36-hole leader Justin Rose backed up with a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open and a three-day total of 7-under 209, down four spots into an eight-way T5, two back of 54-hole co-leaders Patrick Rodgers and defending- and two-time champ Brandt Snedeker.

The 36-year-old began the third round with a 1-shot lead over playing competitors Snedeker and Adam Hadwin. He mustered just four (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 1.917 putts per GIR and -0.809 SG: Putting. The Englishman outbalanced birdies at Nos. 4 and 13, both from inside of 10 feet, with bogeys at 2, 8 and 12, all on failed scrambles. His only other scoring chance inside of 16 feet was a missed 6-footer for birdie at the par-5 sixth.
Jan 28 - 6:51 PM

Taking on the South Course at Torrey Pines, overnight leader and World No. 13 Justin Rose signed for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 after the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 8-under 136, good for the 54-hole lead by one over Adam Hadwin and Brandt Snedeker.

The 36-year-old began the second frame with a 1-shot lead over Hadwin and two clear of five players. He mustered just six (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 3.317 strokes tee-to-green though a -0.358 SG: Putting. With birdies at Nos. 5 (15'4") and 10 (5'8"), the Olympic gold medalist was blemish-free 2-under thru 13 holes before back-to-back bogeys at 14 and 15 (failed scrambles), but walked off with a 10-footer for birdie at the par-5 18th to regain the top spot. Rose, winless last season for the first time since 2009, will be going for his eighth TOUR title in 289 career starts (288 pro), first since a 1-shot win at the 2015 Zurich Classic where he was a 54-hole co-leader.
