Justin Rose | My First Open


We’ve seen some remarkable debuts down the years at The Open, but few can match Justin Rose’s bow.

Major champion, Olympic gold medallist and time spent at world number one; for Rose, though, it all began with the famous culmination of his inaugural Open.

A shot that immediately went down in history as one of the great moments in a Championship steeped in amateur pedigree, Rose strolled down the 18th of The 127th Open at Royal Birkdale in 1998 having already announced himself as a star, unaware, however, of what was to come.

In a spot of bother after finding rough just short of the green-side bunker on the iconic par four, Rose lofted a chip high into the Merseyside sky, to cries from the crowd: ‘Get in,’ they bayed.
