Justin Rose Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Tue 07 Feb 2023

JUSTIN ROSE ended a four-year drought by winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. In the process, the Englishman secured his place in the field for The Masters.

He admitted afterwards that he had doubted himself during a barren period which had seen the former world No 1 slip out of the world’s top 75. But a final round of 66 was enough to see him win by three strokes.

“This is just a moment to say thanks to the people that believed in me maybe more than I do,” said Rose.

“There have been a lot of people that have rallied around me and I’ve just had an unbelievable week.

“It was an incredible week from start to finish with a lot happening in my favour.”

Resuming his delayed final round at the 10th hole with a two-shot lead, he was put under pressure by Brendon Todd with a closing 65 but holed 20ft birdie putts at the 11th and 13th to keep him at arm’s length. A great approach at the 14th hole saw him stretch his advantage to three strokes.

Player Profile

Rose was born on July 30, 1980 in Johannesburg but grew up in England. He first came to prominence when he pre-qualified as an amateur for the 1998 Open. There, he holed a dramatic shot from the rough at the final hole to finish in a tie for fourth place. Soon afterwards, aged 18, he turned professional and missed his first 21 cuts.

He earned his first European Tour card when he finished 4th at the qualifying school in 1999. The following season he failed to retain his card and had to revisit the qualifying school, where he finished ninth.

In 2001 he opened the season with consecutive second-place finishes in the country of his birth, South Africa. He went on to finish the year in top-40 on the Order of Merit. He won his first professional event, the Dunhill Championship in South Africa, in 2002, and followed this up with three further victories in that year.

In 2003, Rose reached number 33 in the world rankings and earned enough money to claim his PGA Tour card as a non-member for 2004. In 2004, he played mostly in America on the PGA Tour, while also maintaining his membership on the European Tour. He slipped out of the top 50 in the world rankings but kept his tour card after earning in excess of a million dollars.

In November 2006 he won the Australian Masters to claim his first title for four years. He also enjoyed a top-five finish at The Masters in 2007 and reach 26 in the world rankings.

Rose won the European Tour Order of Merit title in 2007 after claiming the Volvo Masters. 

His first success on the PGA Tour came at the Memorial Tournament in 2010 and he has since gone on to win 11 times on the PGA Tour, the most by any English golfer. His crowning glory came when he won the US Open in 2013. He has also won 11 times on the DP World Tour and in 2016 won the gold medal at the Olympic Games. He has won two WGC events and represented Europe in the Ryder Cup on five occasions.

Rose is a former world number one who had slipped to 71st in the rankings and 77th in the FedEx Cup standings before the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. His win saw him rise to 10th in the FedEx Cup standings.
