Encyclopedia > Justin Rose

Justin Rose is an English professional golfer. He was born in Johannesburg South Africa on 30 July 1980 and moved to the United Kingdom at the age of five.

Justin Rose burst to prominence at The Open Championship of 1998 when he finished fourth as a seventeen year old amateur. He turned professional the following week, but initially struggled badly, missing the cut in most of the events he played in the following twelve months.

Justin Rose's career soon began to take off however, and he became established on the PGA European Tour. 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, he reached number 33 in the World Golf Rankings. In 2004, he played mainly in America on the PGA Tour, while also maintaining his membership of the PGA European Tour. He did not have a good year, and slipped out of the top 50 in the world rankings.
