It’s a funny old game. Justin Rose, Hampshire’s golfing pride and joy, carded a birdie at the first hole on the final day to take a share of the lead in the U.S. Open.
Chasing his second Major after six years, he found himself scrambling to keep up before a devastating five bogeys pushed him back into a tie for third. Pebble Beach became both a rock and a hard place. He has also had to part company with his long-time caddie (see Page 4). After seeing Rose fall away, American Gary Woodland held off the challenge of world number one Brooks Koepka to claim his own first Major at the 119th US
Open at Pebble Beach. Rose finished tied for third.
But Rose, 38, now world number four, insisted: “It doesn’t hurt. “You reflect and think ‘How can I get better?’ There’s no point in letting it hurt too much.
“It hurts if you lose at the death and you make a mistake. Like the way it happened for me today, “I’m more proud of the fact I even gave myself a chance.” And the event was a damp squib for the hordes of fans who were waiting for fresh impetus in Tiger Woods’ revival following his Masters triumph and 15th Major at Augusta.
