5 Things to Know

How Justin Rose started playing golf

Rose was born in Johannesburg and first swung a golf club in his backyard at 11 months when his father, Ken, gave him a plastic club. Rose's family moved to England when Rose was 5, where he started competitive golf at Hartley Wintney Golf Club near Hampshire. Rose broke 70 for the first time aged 11 and held a handicap of plus-1 by the age of 14. Rose announced himself to the golf world in two ways when he was 17; he became the youngest golfer to play in the Walker Cup; and holed a 50-yard shot from the rough for birdie on the 18th hole at Royal Birkdale on Sunday at the 1998 Open Championship, finishing tied fourth and claiming the silver medal for the low amateur. The following day he turned professional.

First professional win

After the 1998 Open Championship, Rose missed the first 21 cuts of his pro career, consecutively. The horror stretch began at the 1998 Dutch Open and ended when he finished 74th at the 1999 Compaq European Grand Prix. Rose first secured a European Tour card in 1999 when he finished fourth at qualifying school. Although he failed to retain his card the following season, he finished ninth upon returning to q school. Rose's first professional victory came at the 2002 Dunhill Championship in his native Johannesburg, which he dedicated to father Ken, who was sick with cancer and died later that year.

Justin Rose's wife Kate

Rose's wife, Kate, is a former international gymnast who retired from competition and was working at IMG where she met Rose in 2000, when he was still managed by the agency. In December 2006, he married Kate and the couple have two children together, Leo, born in 2009 and, Charlotte or ‘Lottie', in 2012. Kate's lucky number is 9, so Rose changed the number on his ball to 99 in the hopes of double luck. They are based in the Bahamas but also have properties at Lake Nona, Florida and Putney, London.

Olympic gold medal winner

Rose became the first Olympic golf champion since 1904 when the sport was reintroduced to the summer games ahead of the 2016 edition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He also made history when he recorded the first hole-in-one at the Olympics. For his services to golf, Rose was made a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in December that year.

Justin Rose's Honma equipment deal

Rose made a significant equipment change to start 2019, ending his 20-year partnership with TaylorMade to sign a lucrative, multi-year contract with luxury Japanese brand Honma. The change paid quick dividends for Rose, with a victory at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines pushing him past the PGA Tour's $50 million mark in career prize money. Rose became the sixth golfer to achieve the milestone, following Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk and Dustin Johnson. Rose continues to be coached by renowned instructor Sean Foley, who previously taught Tiger Woods.
