Justin Rose makes eagle on 18 at Royal Birkdale to win the Silver Medal, 1998

In the 20 years between the two events there was, most notably, his victory in the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion, where he beat Phil Mickelson and Jason Day by two, an Olympic gold medal and three Ryder Cup victories. Rose also enjoyed five spells as world No. 1 between September 2018 and April 2019.

He missed his first 21 cuts as a professional, but has gone on to enjoy a stellar career. He became European Tour No.1 in 2007 and since then has twice been a runner-up in The Masters, losing a play-off to Sergio Garcia in 2017, as well as finishing third in the U.S. Open and fourth in the PGA Championship.

Rose has also won two World Golf Championships – the Cadillac Championship in 2012 and the 2017 HSBC Champions in China, where he came from eight behind Johnson on the final day. He has 11 European Tour titles and 10 PGA Tour crowns, most recently the Farmers Insurance Open in January 2019. He collected his fifth Ryder Cup cap in 2018 and led this April’s Masters by four after a stunning opening-day 65, before finishing seventh.
