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.
Nov 30 - 2:29 PM

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.
Sep 4 - 5:22 PM

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.
Sep 3 - 5:49 PM

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.
Sep 2 - 1:41 PM

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.
Aug 14 - 3:16 PM

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.
Aug 13 - 3:18 PM

World No. 12 Justin Rose orchestrated a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Men's Olympic Golf Competition to post 6-under 136, up one spot to T3 with play still in progress.

The 36-year-old is currently two back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Henrik Stenson following a three-birdie one-bogey effort. He split 12 (of 13) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, erasing a lone bogey-5 at the 15th (failed sand save) with back-to-back birdies at Nos. 5 and 6 (13'0") and a 12-footer for birdie-2 at 17.
Aug 12 - 1:06 PM

Justin Rose dropped in an ace at the par-3 fourth hole and parlayed that into a 4-under-par 32-35=67 to open his week at the Men's Olympic Golf Competition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Englishman opened his Olympic career with par-par-birdie-ace-birdie, racing out to 4-under early. The ace came from 189 yards (7-iron) and was one of just two eagles carded on the day (Sergio Garcia, par-5 18th). Rose calmed down after that stretch, trading two more birdies with a pair of bogeys. On the day he split 11 (of 13) fairways to setup the attack throughout the round. He walked off the course gaining 4.702 strokes tee-to-green but actually losing 0.705 strokes putting. If his putter can heat up than the World No. 12 golfer has a very good shot at securing a medal by week's end.
Aug 11 - 3:04 PM

Justin Rose is embracing the Olympic Games in Rio with great enthusiasm and is one of the favorites for a medal.

The bookmakers have the Englishman third in their betting behind Sweden's Henrik Stenson and Spain's Sergio Garcia. Rose has not quite had his best stuff this summer although he looks close after T22 in both the Open Championship and PGA Championship and, in the latter, he posted 66-68 on the weekend. While he fills his Twitter feed with Rio experiences, Rose is also determined to add the title of Olympic champion to his resume which already shows a major and WGC win. He'll represent Team GB with Masters champion Danny Willett.
Aug 8 - 7:40 AM

The third round of the 98th PGA Championship was suspended at 2:15 p.m. ET due to inclement weather with 10 (of 86) players yet to tee off.

According to PGA TOUR officials, the duration of the delay will be at least one hour. One chap who won't have to worry about it is Justin Rose, who celebrated his 36th birthday with a 4-under-par 33-33=66, bumping 42 places on Moving Day to T28. He was one of 17 golfers to make the cut on the number (2-over 142) after opening his 14th appearance in 70-72.
