Career Summary

Goosen's career started slowly, but he saw a significant improvement in 1996. He won his first European Tour title at the Slaley Hall Northumberland Challenge. Goosen jumped 69 places on the Order of Mertit into the 25th spot and on the Sunshine Tour he finished second on the Order of Merit despite only playing six events. Golf experts started to see some major improvements in Goosen's game for the first time. 1997 was Goosen's best year with his second career European Tour victory and six top-10 finishes. Though Goosen saw a slite dip in performance in 1998 1999 was a another consistent year with a record 13 top-10 finishes, including another victory in at the Novotel Perrier Open de France with 4 runner-up finishes. He moved up the Order of Merit to a career high 5th position. It wasn't until 2001 where he made his name in America with a U.S. Open win on a very tough Southern Hills Golf Course. Goosen nearly lost his chance at victory after missing a short putt on the final green but managed to recover to make a play-off with PGA Championship winner Mark Brooks. Goosen dominated the next day's 18-hole playoff winning by 2 shots. He finished 2001 with 3 wins, 11 top tens and the European Tour Order of Merit and followed it up with another in 2002. After his 3rd win of the 2001 season Goosen rose to a career-high 11th in the world. Mark Brooks (March 25, 1961 Fort Worth, Texas) is an American golfer. ...


Goosen's second major championship and second U.S. Open title came in 2004 at Shinnicock Hills Golf Club. The USGA had prepared extremely tough conditons which were later argued by players as "unfair."[citation needed] Goosen won the U.S. Open by 2 strokes over fan favorite Phil Mickelson. Goosen had 24 putts in the final round and 11 one-putts.

In 2005 Goosen was in pursuit of his third U.S. Open and his second in a row. Goosen led by three strokes after three rounds of golf at the Pinehurst No. 2 course. The tournament was thought to be over with an expectation that "The Iceman" would win handily, Shockingly Goosen disappeared in the final round with a score of 81 and he ended up finishing in 11th place. "I messed up badly. I obvoiusly threw this one away." said Goosen afterward. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Goosen has been a consistent player: he has won internationally every year since 1995, and also won a PGA Tour event every year from 2001 to 2005. Additionally, he has spent a long period of time in the top 5 of the Official World Golf Rankings, and in 2006 reached a career-best third place, but since late 2006 he has had a dip in performance, but this maybe due to some swing changes and the enlisting of a couch.

The Official World Golf Rankings is a system for rating the performance level of male professional golfers. ...


In 2007 Goosen was leading the Masters until a bogey on the 12th. All he needed was to birdie one of his 6 remaining holes to get in a playoff, Goosen failed to do so and he ended up tied for 2nd.


Goosen is known for his extremely calm demeanor, a trait that has earned him the nickname "The Iceman" on the PGA Tour. He is also affectionately called "The Goose."


He is now married with a son and daughter, and has homes in Ascot, Berkshire, England and Orlando, Florida, U.S. as well as retaining residence in Polokwane, South Africa Statistics Population: Ordnance Survey OS grid reference: SU925685 Administration District: Windsor and Maidenhead Region: South East England Constituent country: England Sovereign state: United Kingdom Other Ceremonial county: Berkshire Historic county: Berkshire Services Police force: Thames Valley Fire and rescue: {{{Fire}}} Ambulance: South Central Post office and telephone Post town: ASCOT...

The PGA Grand Slam of Golf / Major Triumphs / Retief Goosen (696 words)
While Els struggled to a disappointing 80, Goosen finished with a 1-over-par 71, good for a 4-under-par 276 total and a two-stroke victory over Phil Mickelson, with whom he was locked in a back-nine duel until the left-hander doublebogeyed the 71st hole.
Goosen's steely resolve to achieve a second Open title in four years was the winning formula on a difficult Shinnecock Hills layout, earning him his second career major championship and a return to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, Nov. 22-24, at Poipu Bay Golf Course at Kauai Resort & Spa in Kauai, Hawaii.
Goosen bogeyed the eighth and 10th holes, but birdied the par-3 11th from 4 feet to regain a two-stroke lead over Mickelson.
