It had been a long time since and Englishman had brought home a major championship, but thanks to Justin Rose and his stellar (and steady) play, the 2013 U.S. Open Championship is his… and I couldn’t be happier for him.
Justin was a rock down the final stretch, posting par-par on 17 and 18, where others faltered. He brushed a 3-wood chip up to a few inches of the cup on 18 to secure his par, and most probably the win. Phil Mickelson was behind him, and could still tie with a birdie on the closing hole, but it wasn’t to be.
To bring home his first major, Justin had TaylorMade on his side. Below is a quick look at what he had in the bag:
Driver: TaylorMade R1
3-wood: TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Tour HL 16.5
Irons: TaylorMade RocketBladez 3-6 Irons, and Tour Preferred MB 7-9 Irons
Wedges: TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB PW, ATV 52, 56 & 60 degree
Putter: TaylorMade Ghost Spider Blade
Ball: TaylorMade Lethal
Congratulations again to Justin, and to everyone at TaylorMade.
