Justin Rose produced a storming finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to secure his seventh PGA Tour title last weekend. Here we look back at all his triumphs to date
Justin Rose’s first victory came at the 2010 Memorial tournament at Muirfield Village where he held off the challenge of Ricky Fowler with a final round 66 to win by three shots. Tournament host Jack Nicklaus was impressed, telling Rose at the presentation: “Your swing couldn’t have been any better.”
Rose followed this maiden win with victory at the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club four weeks later. This rare picture shows him in the bunker on the second in a final round which saw him hit 16 greens in regulation.
Rose celebrates with his son Leo after winning the BMW Championship at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in September 2011. He held a four-shot lead going in to the final day and had to endure some nervous moments before edging out John Senden by two strokes.
Rose’s fourth title came at the 2012 World Golf Championship’s Cadillac Championship at Doral in Florida. He trailed leader Bubba Watson overnight but produced a final round two-under 70 to win by one shot.
Rose’s greatest triumph came at the 2013 US Open where he became the first Englishman for 43 years to take the title. He held off the challenge of Phil Mickelson and Jason Day to also become the first Englishman since Nick Faldo in 1996 to win a Major title.
He needed a play-off to clinch his sixth title at the Quicken Loans National at Congressional. He defeated unheralded American Shawn Stefani at the first extra hole. His walk down the 18th was made a little easier after his opponent found the water.
Rose’s latest triumph came after he birdied the final two holes at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at the weekend. The 34-year-old carded a 66 to win by one shot from American Cameron Tringale.
