World No. 16 Justin Rose twirled a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a four-day tally of 20-under 260, good for solo 2nd, seven adrift of overnight leader and champion Justin Thomas.
The 36-year-old fulfilled the new TOUR requirement to add a tourney that he hadn't played in the last four years, and he's glad he did. This was his fifth Sony, first since T13 in 2011, and supplants a previous-best T12 in 2010, where he also closed in 64. The Englishman, who was making his first start of the season, began R4 in a three-way T3 on 14-under, eight shy of playing competitor Thomas. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 11 (failed scramble), but silenced it with six conventional birdies at Nos. 3, 4, 8 (14'4"), 10, 16 and 18, adding a 47-footer from off the green at the par-4 15th (using the flat stick). For the week, Rose carded 25 birdies versus five bogeys and posted rounds of 66-64-66-64. It's his 10th runner-up in 288 career events, first since T2 at the 2015 TOUR Championship.

World No. 16 Justin Rose tossed up a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach 14-under 196, and will begin the final round eights shots in arrears to 54-hole leader Justin Thomas.

The 36-year-old was the first of three to post 14-under, so he'll play out of the final threesome on Sunday with Thomas and Zach Johnson, who's in solo 2nd on 15-under. He began the third round right where he finished it, in a three-way T3, but slipped one shot further back of Thomas after a one-bogey five-birdie showing. The Olympic Gold Medalist was sleepwalking thru the first nine, exchanging bogey-5 at the fifth (failed scramble) with birdie-3 at the eighth, but came home in blemish-free 4-under, adding birdies at 13 (from 28'5"), 14 (27'3"), 16 (17'8") and 18.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 16 Justin Rose crafted a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach 10-under 130, up 19 spots to T2 and good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Hudson Swafford. UPDATE: With play completed, Rose is in a three-way T3, seven adrift of 36-hole leader Justin Thomas.

This is the 36-year-old's fifth appearance, first since a T13 in 2011. He matched a personal best at Waialae CC, which he posted in the final round in 2010 en route to a T12 (72-65-71-64). The Olympic Gold Medalist, who's making his first start of the season, kicked off with a six-birdie two-bogey 66. In R2, he squared a lone bogey-5 at the 13th, but camouflaged it with birdies on Nos. 11, 12, 18, 2, 4, 6 and 9. Rose mustered just five (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR and 2.008 SG: Putting. He converted five from inside of 12 feet, adding a 21-footer for birdie-2 at the 11th and a 35-footer at the par-4 12th.

Justin Rose admits his preparations for this week's UBS Hong Kong Open aren't ideal but he remains committed to put up a strong defense of the title he won last year.

Rose had nearly two months off after the Ryder Cup to try and resolve a back issue but it flared up again on his return in last week's Hero World Challenge, forcing him to withdraw after round one. "I've done everything I can the last few days to do everything I can to defend here," he told "I'm making good progress. The journey over here seemed to go well and I'm looking forward to tomorrow. I've been working hard to be honest with you for seven weeks. I've been really excited about what I've seen in my game in practice. In terms of this week, it's not ideal to come in here slightly undercooked preparation-wise but I'm hoping that the fact that I've been diligent and careful the last few days is going to allow me to be competitive for all four days." Rose shot 17-under last year to win a final-day duel with Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard.

Scheduled to go off at 11:12 a.m. ET with Tiger Woods, Justin Rose has instead backed out of this week's Hero World Challenge due to a back injury.

Rose posted a 2-over-par 36-38=74 during the opening round to find himself in last place of the 18-man field. He was 10 stokes off the early pace set by J.B. Holmes. The Englishman was returning from an eight-week absence, a planned leave to rest and recover from this very issue. There is no word on the severity of the injury, but this does put in question his availability for next week's UBS Hong Kong Open where he is set to play the role of defending champion.

Following a planned absence of eight weeks, Justin Rose will return to action at this week's Hero World Challenge.

The Englishman issued a statement shortly after the Ryder Cup, telling his fans about the upcoming schedule. Instead of playing in the European Tour's Final Series, he opted for rest as he battled through back discomfort throughout the summer. Albany was an easy spot to return since it's played right in his backyard. In addition to the golf, Rose is also playing the role of part-time host this week as he alerted his fans on Instagram, "Hosting dinner for all players and caddies at our house tonight!" Despite the local knowledge, Rose could only manage a 13th-place finish last year. Optimists can highlight the final-round, 10-under 62 as he pieced together a bogey-free round while circling 10 birdies in the process. It was the low round of the entire week. Assuming all goes well this week, Rose will attempt to defend his title next week at the UBS Hong Kong Open.

Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose has announced an eight-week break from competitive golf, allowing a few months to recover from a busy summer schedule.

The Englishman shared the news via Twitter saying, "Following an intense summer schedule and discussion with my team, I have decided to take the next eight weeks off for rest and recovery." Rose would go on to cite his back discomfort that started at THE PLAYERS and referenced the European Tour's Final Series and the British Masters as tough events to miss. This will also mean no WGC-HSBC Champions for the gold medalist. Rose did not mention a specific return event but a likely return would be at the Hero World Challenge (Nov. 29th) which is right in his back yard in the Bahamas, or December 8th at the UBS Hong Kong Open. We will update when a specific return become clearer.

Justin Rose and Chris Wood claimed a two-up victory over Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson in Saturday's foursomes at the 2016 Ryder Cup

With the match going up the final hole, and both Walker and Wood missing the fairway, the approach shots became vital. The Americans, trailing by 1 hole, went first and Johnson's effort flew the green whereas Rose found the putting surface. Walker couldn't chip in and Wood secured the par; the match was won. The match had been locked at all square through 6 holes before Justin Rose found his putting boots for the first time in the week, holing for birdies (and wins) from 15' on 7 and 8' on 10 to go 2-up. His playing partner Chris Wood was making a solid and unflappable debut whilst the Americans were solid but lacking spark and then slipped with bogey on 13 and go 3-down. The error seemed to spark them into action. Walker drained a birdie from 25' on 14 for the win and then knocked the third shot on the par-5 16th to kick in range for another. Suddenly they were just one-down. But they couldn't complete the recovery. The win left the score 6-5 to U.S.A.

Justin Rose is one of Europe's finest-ever Ryder Cup performers and he heads to Hazeltine National Golf Club on a gold-leaved high.

The Englishman's .71% record is second only to his good friend Ian Poulter in European history (minimum three starts) and with the latter riding a buggy this week Rose could move ahead of him. He will need to maintain very high standards however, because to attain that figure he has lost just thrice in 14 matches (with two halves). He captured three points in partnership with Henrik Stenson two years ago and Darren Clarke faces a question: is that duo kept together or will the need to support the rookies lead to those strengths being spread across the board? Rose's memories of the last Ryder Cup on US soil will be nothing but good: he holed two career putts on 17 and 18 to topple Phil Mickelson and his current form boasts the Olympic gold. He missed the cut at the RTJ-designed Hazeltine National in 2009, but is a winner at RTJ's Valderrama. Undefeated in Ryder Cup singles.

Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose patched together a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 9-under 204, currently T7 on the leaderboard.

At the time he signed his card, the 36-year-old had climbed back to where he started the round, tied seventh, but it took a birdie-birdie finish to get there. He played his first 16 holes in even-par, sandwiching birdies at 7 and 9 with bogeys at 2 and 11, the latter after missing par-savers from 5'5" and 4'6", respectively. The Englishman did avoid further damage dropping a nine-footer at the fifth and a 10'9" save at the par-3 16th. He circled his four birdies on 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR.

Olympic gold medalist twirled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach halftime on 7-under 135, up 13 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The 36-year-old began off No. 10 tee and found 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.811 SG: Putting. He broke the ice with birdie-2 at the 16th from 19'7" and made a six-footer for a par-save on 18 to turn 1-under. The Englishman heated up with birdies at Nos. 1, 3 and 4, each from inside of nine feet, finishing with five straight pars. Thru 36 holes, he's the only player thus far that is blemish-free.

Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose opened his week at the Deutsche Bank Championship with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-33=68 to sit two off the early leaders on day one.

The Englishman split 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation. The ball-striking took a lot of stress off the putter, needing just one par-saver from outside four feet. Rose then took advantage of the par 5s, adding circles at Nos. 2 and 18 in addition to a birdie at the par-4 17th. Since the FedExCup Playoffs began in 2007, Rose has failed to record at top 15 at TPC Boston, but he could be on his way if he maintains this level of ball-striking as the week progresses.

After an opening 2-over-par 73, Justin Rose carved out his second straight 1-under-par 70 (35-35) in today's third round of The Barclays, reaching the three-quarter pole on even-par 213, up 11 places on the live leaderboard to T40.

The 36-year-old took last week off after winning gold for Great Britain 13 days ago at the Rio Games. This is his ninth appearance at The Barclays in the 10-year history of the FedExCup Playoffs, skipping the 2008 edition. Thru 54 holes, he's circled 10 birdies against 10 bogeys. The Englishman is making his 16th start of the season with a season-best 3rd-place finish at the Wells Fargo among five top 10s. He entered the week 51st in the FEC standings. Rose has won at least once in each of the past six seasons and has three tries after this week to keep that going.

Great Britain's Justin Rose celebrated winning the gold medal at the 31st Olympiad after a superb final hole up-and-down allowed him to card 4-under-par 32-35=67 and claim a two-shot victory over Henrik Stenson on 16-under 268.

The Englishman entered the final round with a one shot lead that was quickly eaten into by Stenson. Although Rose made birdie at the par-five first and fifth, Stenson followed suit and added another on the second. A final round head-to-head was confirmed. Rose three-putted the seventh and failed to save par from sand on the 13th, but he drained birdies from 5'11" on 8 and 6'4" on 15, but perhaps his par putt of 14'3" on 14 was equally important in his ultimate success. Heading up the last Rose and Stenson were tied for the lead and both missed the par-five green in two. Rose pitched to 5 feet and drained the putt to claim the glory. "Oh my God," the winner said afterwards. "That felt better than anything I've ever won. It was the best tournament I've ever done." It is his 21st win worldwide and sits behind only his 2013 U.S. Open Championship title as the most significant.

World No. 12 Justin Rose rode two eagles to a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the Olympic Golf Competition to reach the three-quarter mark on 12-under 201, up three places on the day and good for one-shot lead over Sweden's Henrik Stenson.

After opening in 67-69, the 36-year-old began R3 in a two-way T6 on 6-under, four back of 36-hole leader Marcus Fraser. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he exchanged birdie-4 at the first (8'1") with a 3-putt bogey on the par-4 second from 32'4", before holing-out for eagle-2 at the third from 77 feet away. After a two-putt par at the fourth, the Englishman eagled the par-5 fifth from 18'2" to turn 4-under. He squared his second (and last) bogey at the par-3 14th (failed sand save), but camouflaged it with circles on 12, 15 and 16. Rose saved a '5' at the 18th with a one-putt from 9'8" to keep his name at the top of the board. His stats in R3 show 5.227 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.010 SG: Putting.
