Justin Rose and Mark Fulcher have been together for over 10 years

Who Is Justin Rose’s Caddie?

Justin Rose is one player on Tour with an interesting caddie situation at the moment.

At the start of 2019 his long time caddie Mark ‘Fooch’ Fulcher had to have heart surgery which left him out of action for a number of months.

As a result Rose teamed up with Henrik Stenson‘s former bagman Gareth Lord for the start of 2019 and the pair enjoyed some success, with a victory at the Farmers Insurance Open.

This was originally meant to be a temporary relationship but right now it appears as if the move has been made permanent.

Looking back, Rose has had  2013 US Open winner split with his previous caddie Mick Doran in the early part of 2008 following a slow start to the season

Doran has most recently been caddying for Rose’s compatriot Luke Donald who has returned to action in 2019 after being sidelined with a back injury last year.

Rose felt it was time for someone new on the bag in 2008 to help improve his game and it turned out to be the right decision.

From 2008 onwards Rose teamed up with Fulcher who had worked on the LPGA Tour for nearly two decades.

He was previously on the bag for Laura Davies as well as Alison Nicholas, including during her 1997 US Women’s Open victory.

Together Rose and Fooch have won the 2013 US Open at Merion Golf Club, an Olympic Gold Medal at the Rio 2016 games, achieved a runner-up finish in the 2017 Masters, won two World Golf Championships and reached the world number one position.

In an interview with TaylorMade in 2017, when asked about his personal relationship with Justin Rose, Fulcher said, “When you spend a long time with somebody and you go through some battles on and off the course, you develop a bond.

“I’d walk through fire for Rosie…The two of us together probably have nearly 50 years experience in professional golf and that knowledge enables us to make the right decision together.”

When you consider this huge success, it would not be surprising to see Fulcher come back onto the bag to replace Gareth Lord, but right now Rose is sticking with Stenson’s former caddie.
